My friend Carrie gave me a pile of felt leaves that she cut using a Tim Holtz die. I right away thought about making napkin holders for Thanksgiving.
I cut the bands and circles from felt also. Using a decorative stitch on my sewing machine to stitch around the band and to sew the leaf and circle to the left side of the band. To complete the holder I added some peel and stick velcro circles.
I had enough leaves left to make a matching table runner.
I used the same decorative stitch for around the outer edge. I pinned the leaves in place, then stitched down the centers to hold them in place.
