Scrappy Leaves

by Nova on February 15, 2012

When Leila asked if I would like to test her new pattern for her I jumped at the chance! A scrappy project to play with? me? excited? you betcha!

It’s such a sweet pattern & a really great little project for the ever overflowing scrap bucket!

I love that Leila gives options on the construction too so you can paper piece or improv piece, use her template or cut freestyle. I’ve made a few already as I think these will make really sweet gifts.

Sold as a key fob pattern, I also think they will be pretty neat clipped to a bag, or hanging from a door handle. I just spotted that Charise made a mini version as a necklace. cute!

I made some Liberty leaves too. yum yum.

& because of their swingy nature it’s fun to add a cute backing that you will catch glimpses of every now & then …

Fancy having a play with Leila’s pattern too? She’s kindly offered one to giveaway to one of you! Yay! Thanks Leila x

You know if you catch  a falling leaf before it hits the ground you can make a wish right?  For a chance to win a copy of Leila’s pattern, leaf  (*groan* sorry but I couldn’t resist!) a comment saying what  your falling  leaf wish would be should you be the lucky catcher of Leila’s leafy gift …? I’ll draw a random winner on Friday morning Brisbane time. Good Luck x

*giveaway is now closed*

In the meantime if you want to get your scrappy little mitts on a copy of Leila’s Scrappy Leaf Fob pattern, hop over to her etsy shop quick sticks!

…& in honour of the pattern designer, I just had to attempt to strike a ‘Leila Pose’ with my leaves! ;)
