The scarf itself is the bottom ribbing of a (felted wool) sweater. How do you felt a sweater? You just throw it in the washer and dryer. If the fabric content is 100% wool, it will "felt" or mat and mesh the fibers together.
The leaf cutouts are felted wool backed with Steam a Seam and ironed on the scarf.
Some of the shapes were hand-cut, like the green leaf image and the ginko. Others were cut with my die-cut, Sizzix. I did not even sew them down, they are just ironed on. (I am secretly hoping that my mother will help me embellish these and sew them down..Mom??)
Happy Felted Fall!
