they’re pinnate not palmate

Leaf_gift_tags
My petiolated, simple, entire, elliptic, pinnate leaf gift tags for dacia‘s swap. She was nice enough to let me jump in at the last second after I had read about it on alicia’s blog. 
At the moment, I can’t remember what gave me this idea, but I do remember being completely uninspired for this swap and having no idea what I wanted to do after I eagerly signed up. Then this idea popped into my mind and it all just flowed from there.  The fabric is stitched on to cardstock so that you can write your message on the back of the tags. They are tied with hemp cord–which oddly smells EXACTLY like the  barns at the county fair. (in all the best ways) I keep sniffing and reminiscing while I tie away.

These little tags will be flying priority to mail to dacia tomorrow to make the deadline.
But, I had my numbers wrong–I thought I needed to make fifteen for the swap, but it turns out I only need eleven.
So, I have four to give away. If you are interested, leave me a comment and let me know you want your name in the hat. I’ll draw a name on Saturday and send my four extras your way!

  1. Those are absolutely beautiful.

    This is really ignorant, but when you sew onto card, do you just use a regular needle in the machine? And how do you keep the fabric from fraying?

  2. I just thought one of htese would be worth making 10 myself and then I see you’re giving away. Onf ourse I want to be in the hat!

  3. Wow, these turned out so cute Molly! I would have loved to be in this swap, I just don’t have time to do any extra-ciricular activities right now. Everybody’s are so darn cute!
