last minute felt leaves centerpiece

IMG_2703
I needed some last minute decorations for the weekend and while it would have been really easy to just make a trip to Target, I decided to put more of my felt scraps to use to make a colorful, free form, felt leaves centerpiece for our table.

I started with a variety of different colors of felt

and cut them into different leaves in variety of shapes and sizes.

I stacked the leaves on top of each other and began free motion sewing them together and adding details as I went.

I continued to stack, layer and sew until I formed a free form "mass" of colorful leaves.

Love this idea, great way to make use of felt and what a colorful centerpiece. Usually they are more autumn colors. Love the change.
