I pinned the remaining leaves into groups of three and gave them a hot run through the washer and dryer.


I grouped the leaves by color compatibility and size prior to the trip to the washer.

I now had a pile of leaves ready to go! Here are a couple of ideas to get you started on crafting your own felted leaves into embellishments for your apparel and home.

Adornments:

Leaf Corsage
Group three leaves together of different color and size variety. With sewing thread, tack the three leaves together securely. 


Sew the leaves together in a pleasing design with regular sewing thread.

Sew a pin back to the reverse. 


You can buy pin backs at any craft store. A safety pin would work, too.
