This felt embroidered wall hanging was inspired by all of the things I love about Autumn. It started when I stumbled upon the work of folk art quilter, Sue Spargo. I instantly fell in love with her designs but since my quilting skills could be classified as novice, at best, I decided to work in a medium I'm more comfortable with, felt!
To celebrate the change of seasons and my new obsession with felt leaves, I'm giving away this wall hanging! Want to win? Just leave a comment telling me what you love about fall.

I stuck with a (mostly) fall color palette for the felt, the embroidery floss and the beads and buttons I used throughout. Each leaf is unique and measures approximately 3 inches tall x 2 inches wide. They are stitched onto a large piece of felt, which is stitched onto another large piece of felt! I created tabs at the top and used a wood dowel for hanging.
