Gathering Autumn’s Harvest: class/tutorial

Gathering Autumn’s Harvest: 2 lessons/$20.00

Country images of old barns resting off even older dirt roads, family and friends and cooked turkeys and pumpkin pie. That is what autumn means to me. I absolutely love all of the rich autumn colors: chestnut, golden umber, warm maple, cinnamon and pumpkin. I have put together a few things that will help make your autumn decorations for your home more memorable.

Skill Level Beginning: sewing machine and some embroidery knowledge needed

gatheringautumnsharvestLesson 1: All about the pumpkins! Directions for several different sizes will be given and I warn you now, you will not stop at only one! The base fabric for the pumpkin can be a plain color, a print or batik. Or if you are feeling adventurous you could CQ a base on your own then use my directions to assemble it. leavesandacorns

Lesson 2: Add in a little bit of the bounty of the harvest time with falling leaves and gathered nuts. You will have two different sizes of each leaf and acorns to chose from. These are made from felt and hand stitched with cotton floss. I made mine from synthetic felt but you could make these items from wool felt.
