This is Autumn Forest.
I made this with leaves from the Deutsch-Afganische initiative.
They sell small embroidery pieces made by Afghan women for their charity.
I asked my facebook friends to join me and send me their textile leaves to use in my piece.
As you can see there are many different techniques to make fabric leaves.

Here are some detail photos of how I used the leaves together with my own.
