Acorns – It’s a Fall Thing

13 Nov

I love acorns! Perhaps it’s the 14th Century Proverb Mighty oaks from little acorns grow, meaning great things come from small beginnings.

My stitching friend Mary Ann who shares my passion for felted wool projects collected baskets full of acorns, I think they are Post Oak acorns, for us to make little wool acorns.

We used 2″, 2 1/4″, and 2 1/2″ die cut felted wool circles, stitched them like a Yo Yo, stuffed them with fiberfill about the size of a cotton ball (or less), knotted them closed and glued them inside the acorn caps with my favorite glue Fabri Tac. They should last forever and we won’t have to fight the squirrels for them!

The Acorn needle book was die cut using the Accuquilt GO Fall Medley die, I used my Sizzix Bigshot Pro machine and the Accuquilt GO Adapter to cut them out. Happy Stitching!
