Inspired by the beautiful foliage in our old Seattle neighborhood, and the light playing with the leaves on a sunny day, I created a piece of burlap art featuring an autumn birch, with its leaves changing colors from green to chartreuse and yellow.
As with my other burlap pieces, the leaves are appliqued onto a large piece of upcycled coffee bag and top-stitched. I added brown embroidery all along the trunk to represent the bark. The artwork is stretched onto a wooden frame and the back is finished with kraft paper and a wire for hanging.
This piece is listed in my Etsy shop here. Stay tuned for more autumn-inspired pieces.
