Sequined Felt Fall Leaves with Neat & Tangled

How to sew felt leaves

We partnered with craft company Neat and Tangled -and was thrilled to try out their stock of stamps and die cuts. Visit their blog this week to see what they made with Benzie's felt!

Nothing is prettier to watch then fall leaves turning color! We have added a little sparkle to our fall leaves by the way of sequins to bring some magic indoors! 

wool blend felt leaves

We partnered with Neat & Tangled and tried out their Maple Thanks die along with a perfectly fall mix of sequins! Die cuts are a great way to quickly start up a project! 

Other items you will need to get started:
-Benzie's wool blend felt in the colors Mulberry, Copper, Ochre, Fern, Moss and Blue Spruce. A 6x9" sheet will work great in your die cut machine too!
-Beads, the bronze iridescent beads complement the sequins perfectly!
-Floss or thread to match the felt (use one strand of divisible floss)
-Needle -make sure you have one that can stitch though a bead.
-polyfil, just a bit! 

thin die cuts and felt

If you are new to die cutting we suggest checking out our tutorial. Layer items in the order show (platform, cutting pad, felt, die cut and finally another cutting pad). I always roll thin dies through the machine twice to ensure a full cut. Cut two leaves per color.

My favorite part is placing on the sequins -and these colors by Neat & Tangled are perfect for the season. It's fun to see the leaves come alive with sparkle! I have found the easiest (and neatest) way is to sew them on with a bead. I use some beads alone as accents too! Here you can go minimal or just adorn your leaves with sparkle!

When you are done with the sequins, whip stitch the leaf closed filling with just a pinch of polyfil prior to closing.

I love this palette of fall colors together! Display them in a bowl or make a garland out of them!
