Handmade Thursday’s: Kids Felt Leaf Craft

Now, I do not have any kids {yet} but I do love being crafty and I certainly loved being crafty as a kid.  My Mom is a seamstress and so during the summer as a kid she would put us to work with fabrics.  She taught all of us {all 5, including my brother} how to use the sewing machine.  We made anything from beanie frogs to barbie clothes.  It was awesome to do something that seamed difficult and too hard for a kid and make it happen. So, I thought this fall felt leaf craft would be perfect for you and your kids to do together.

Fall Felt Leaves

First things first, have your kids go out and pick their own fall leaf. This way it will be more fun for them and you will have a little time  to gather what you guys will need.

  • Felt Fabric in Red, orange, yellow, greens etc.
  • Fabric marker or pen
  • Needle and embroidery thread
  • Fall Leaves for tracing

Once they’ve picked their leaf, have them trace it onto the felt {Once you’ve traced the first one, cut 2 more in other colors to add some depth and fun}. Then cut them out.

Lastly, thread the needles for your little tike and show them how to do it. Rosy Posy loved the idea of stitching the kind of leaf on it and I like it a lot too.  What would be fun is to make these big enough to be fall coasters for your kitchen or coffee table.

Have fun making these with your kids!
