These three dimensional leaves look amazingly realistic. Depending on the stabilizer used, they can be dense and stable enough to use as a pendant or earrings, or ruffled and frilled like a fresh leaf. They are fun and fairly easy to make. Students will receive a design sheet with several varieties of leaves to make. After the stitchery is completed, the leaves can be enhanced with colored pencils to make then more realistic. Please note this project needs a sewing machine with a free motion and a zig zag foot, the venue will have a few loaner machines to share. You may bring your own if you live locally.
