IC45- A Fall Project

This week is the Iron Craft Fall Challenge (cue intense music).  When I think of fall, I think of leaves.  So for my project, I created a tree with fabric leaves, perfect to hang on the wall.

I sketched out the tree and pinned the fabric leaves in place.  Then I stitched over the tree with my machine and added the words "Give Thanks" by hand.  I left the leaves loose on the edges so they will flutter a bit and look more realistic.  I put the finished piece in an embroidery hoop to display it.
