I make all kinds of fabric leaves and since I showed some Dior roses I thought leaves would add a bit more.
Use any fabric, batik works well, and double it. I use a small zigzag st. and sew basic leaf shapes.
Next I give them some design with a fabric marker for veins and I draw around the outside of the stitching with a gold marker. This will seal the edges when they are cut.
Cut out with either pinking shears or regular shears.
You can fold a wee pleat in the bottom for more dimension.
For the arrangement I just put some of my flowers and the leaves on the scanner bed.
Let me know how they turn out.
