As we enter the season of Thanksgiving I just want
 to take a moment to let you know how thankful I am
 for each and everyone of you. This creative journey would
 not be the same without all the people who appreciate what I do. 
Please enjoy this Little Leaf tutorial as a small gift from me to you.
Cutting for one 2-1/4" finished Little Leaf block
from light cut
1 | 1-1/4" square
2 | 1-3/4" squares 
2 | 1-1/4" x 3" strips
from dark cut
3 | 1-1/4" squares
2 | 1-3/4" squares
from dark brown cut 
1 | 5/8" x 3" strip
Make half square triangles using 1-3/4" light
 and dark squares and this tutorial.
 Make stem section by strip piecing 1-1/4" light
strips to each side of 5/8" brown strip.
Using your 1-1/4" dark square as a guide 
cut a 1-1/4" square from you stem strip set.
Layout block using photo above | Repeat to make 12 Little Leaves

So sorry but we did not make kit for this project,
dive into your scrap basket these Little Leaves do not take much.
