Living in Florida makes me nostalgic for the true Autumn that I experienced in Pennsylvania as a child. The Fall color palette is my favorite to craft with. The rich browns, burnt orange, gold, and burgundy just make me warm and fuzzy inside, so I have created Easy Embroidered Kitchen Towels for Autumn. Scroll down to see the shortcut I took to make this embroidery a breeze!

Here's what you need to make Embroidered Felt Leaves:
- Kunin Classic™ Felt 9” x 12” Craft Cuts – Pumpkin Spice, Prickly Purple, Goldenrod, Ruby, Walnut Brown, Olive Green, Gold
- E6000 Fabri-Fuse fabric glue
- Linen Kitchen Towels – Three
- Embroidery Floss in contrasting colors
- Embroidery Needle
- Scissors – I love my Fiskars!
- Pinking Shears – for fabric
- Scallop Shears – for fabric
- Tombow MONOTWIN Permanent Marker
- Pencil and Plain Paper
Here's how to Embroider Kitchen Towels:
Sketch six leaf shapes on plain paper with a pencil, two for each kitchen towel. Cut out and trace onto Kunin Classic™ Felt with MONOTWIN permanent marker. Cut out all felt pieces with scissors, making sure to cut inside the traced lines, so that your finished project is neat and clean. For added patterns, use straight scissors, pinking shears, and scallop shears for fabric.
Thread an embroidery needle with six strands of embroidery floss. Sew Kunin Felt Goldenrod square onto the kitchen towel with a running stitch. Stitch leaf veins with six strands of embroidery floss. Mix and match the felt colors as well as the embroidery floss colors for a funky boho feel. Embellish embroidery stitches with French knots.
Using the photos as your guide, attach two leaves onto each of three linen kitchen towels with E6000 Fabri-Fuse fabric glue. Set aside to dry completely. The Fabri-Fuse retains some elasticity when dry which I really love for fabric projects.
