thanksgiving trees

i thought i'd post about the things i made for christmas. i couldnt post about them earlier, since it would spoil the surprise.



for robyn and angie, i made thanksgiving trees. i used felt and ribbon and stitch witchery... the only sewing i did on it was on the little pouch that holds the pins and leaves. each year they can hang it on the wall and write things they're thankful for on the leaves. pinning the paper leaves on the tree was the only thing i could come up with, but maybe i'll think of a better way to do it someday. i also hope to find some cute little photo albums or something to keep the leaves from previous years in.
