Scan leaf into the ScanNCut. Press start and preview the outline on the screen to save the image on the Scan N Cut.
Adjust the leaf to the desired size. Set the image to repeat and arrange the leaves to fit on the mat. Load the mat into the ScanNCut with a sheet of 90-140lb., 12”x12” watercolor paper. Send to Cut.
Peel the sheet off the mat, leaving the leaf cutouts on the mat. Using the spatula, peel the leaves off the mat and put them to the side.
Pin a piece of white (washed and dried ) fabric to a protected piece of padded board. Using squirt bottles, filled with free-flowing thin acrylic paint (suitable for fabric), apply to fabric.
Apply all the colors until the fabric is completely coated, but not soaking wet.
Arrange the leaves on the fabric and press them down. Take the board with fabric and leaves outside on a sunny day.
Apply a handful of salt onto fabric. The salt will also leave a design. Leave board outside until the fabric is dry.
Following manufacturer’s instructions, apply fusible web to 12”x12” piece of fabric. Apply fabric side face up onto the Standard Mat.
Select rectangle pattern, and adjust measurement to cut three, 9”x4” pieces. Send to cut.
Take the three pieces, peel the removable film, and fuse fabric onto a 9”x12” piece of felt.
Machine stitch random lines onto the fabric/felt quilting the fabric.
Fold the fabric rectangle 2/3 up to have the shape of a wallet. Pin.
Using a sewing machine, sew all the sides as well as designs across to make sure the fabric is attached to the cutout pieces. Pin the wallet together and sew ends together, creating a wallet.
To tie It all together, sew a small leaf and button to the top flap.
