It is September and my summer door decorations were looking tired and sad. The blue burlap ribbon had faded terribly. The tan burlap flags were looking a bit tired and they had darkened some.
I'm not quite ready to break out the pumpkins from last year and Halloween decorations as yet. So, I decided to dig through my scrap pile to see what I could put together to tide us over.
I found a remnant of dark brown burlap. It was 1/3 of a yard. So, I decided I would try to get four small flags or banners out of it.
I dug through the fabric stash and found some orange chevron-striped fabric left from a baby blanket project, I think. So, I drew a couple of leaf-shaped patterns and made some appliques for my burlap.
I decided that I needed something to coordinate with it. So, I chose a solid orange piece of fabric. Here is what I wound up with for my door decorations.
My remnant and scraps made four door decorations with falling leaves and fall colors.
I guess I'm just easing my way into fall this year!
