AUTUMN LEAVES

Updated: Jul 16

Traditional fall colors blend with little pops of blue in this Autumn-themed pattern! It features pumpkins, acorns, falling leaves, and little blue flowers. The text reads, "Autumn Leaves and Pumpkins Please."

PATTERN DETAILS: The model was stitched using shades of orange, green, brown, and blue on a creamy 32 ct linen. The pattern calls for whole stitches only, and uses shades from Classic Colorworks, Weeks Dye Works, and DMC. The stitch count is 97w x 131h, which stitches up to be about 6"w x 8 1/4"h on that fabric. WHERE TO BUY RECREATE THE LOOK:

Finish Fabric: This brown fabric has been sitting in my stash for a reeeealllly long time :D. I have no idea what it is or where it came from!


Cording: I spun the cording with my Kreinik custom corder and DMC 504. To get the thickness, I used 6 lengths of the full 6-ply DMC floss. Plan on using 2 skeins.


Bow: The beige ribbon is a 1.5" wire-edged canvas ribbon that I found at 5th Street Studio on Etsy. I dove-tailed the ends and sealed them with Fray-Check.



The brown ribbon is a 3/8" grosgrain find from Hobby Lobby. The SKU is 171983.


The green gingham ribbon is also from Hobby Lobby. The SKU is 979971.


I clipped the tails horizontally so they would't obstruct my stitching, and also sealed them with Fray-Check.



Button: I used a size 30 covered button from Dritz (3/4") to pair with an orange damask fabric (also from stash).

The materials listed above are unique to this piece. The foundational supplies (the board, glue, batting, etc--stuff you can't see) are the same no matter what I am finishing, so I buy those in bulk and keep them on hand. You can see what those materials are on the Tools and Organization page, and can find directions on how to assemble everything together on the Tutorials page on this website. It is a bit of a process, so I broke the videos down into sequential bite-sized pieces for you. I'm always happy to answer questions if you get stuck along the way!

One more time, here is how it all looks together --



Happy Stitching!
