Today I'd love to share with you my second little project for Christmas Crafts 2015. I made six holly leaves with berries. The pattern is self drafted and before I write more about the process, let's take a look at the finished project :)
Self-drafted, begin from the two rectangle shapes for the leave 1 and 2. Another pattern number 3 is the small square shape for the berry. After I drew the rectangle and square shapes, I drew the rest. As shown in the picture below,
Felt in dark green for the leaves and red for the berries
Grey thread to sew the leaves veins and light brown to sew the berries.
Some pin and scissor
After I cut all the leaves and berries, I pin the two pieces of leaves and berries together. Sew the leave veins with grey thread and around the berry with light brown thread. I did that in all the leaves and berries.
Then hand sewn the two finished leaves together, as shown below
Using the same thread, sewn the berry on the top of the leaves.
Sewn the second berry on it,
And sewn the last berry. I made sure the thread didn't shown in the right side of the leaves or berries. Done!
Here is one more picture of the finished holly leaves with berries :) I am planning to stick them somewhere in the living room or the door. I will see..
