Autumn is such stunning season. Beautiful shades of red, brown and gold are all around us. This majestic tree is right in front of my workshop, need I say more? If I take a small break from painting, or other daily chore, I just look at this tree and feel so peaceful.
Nature influences me and my creative work. Especially changes in color in nature so when I visited our local goodwill store I was so happy to find two packages of tapestry yarn in all those inspiring autumnal shades such as red, gold, orange and brown. (take a look at the price tag!)
This is 100% virgin wool so when you see it..grab it. In the evening hours I made a few autumn oak leaves from a pattern I found online at www.naturalsuburbia.blogspot.com. When you are visiting her blog search “autumn oak leaves” and you will find her tutorial. I am sorry but since this is not my own pattern I am not permitted to give instructions on this blog.
It just takes about an evening to make one leaf, and I can tell you this: it is addicting!
Don’t you love those leaves? You have a few ideas how to decorate with these leaves? I am thinking to add them to my fall table decorations. But you can also sew them to a hair band, turn them into a brooch or maybe sew them to a scarf. let me know what you will do with those cute knitted oak leaves.
