Well I had one of those creative flashes yesterday and it lead me to a frantic sewing spree!
I have been pondering on a key chain design for quite some time but I couldn't quite figure out what I wanted. Most of my initial ideas were based on things I had seen many times before. And although practical, I wanted something a little more fun.
The leaves are improvisational pieced from teeny tiny scraps of fabric, and layered with batting and backing. I cut each leaf shape by hand with my scissors so no two are exactly the same. The edges are finished with a tight V stitch, this makes them a little jagged and curl up a little just like real leaves.
I am loving these leaf key chains to bits and I'm sewing up a couple more to give as Christmas presents as soon as I have restocked on some essential supplies!
