Thread a small sharp needle with a matching color of thread as the ribbon. Fold a piece of ribbon in your hand and fold the end over to form a loop.
Sew through the loop end and leave a tail. Make two small stitches to anchor the thread.
Fold the other end of the ribbon so there is a loop the same size as the first loop. You will have a figure 8. Sew through the end of second loop.
Trim any leftover ribbon and sew to your project. Sew the leaf so that the center is hidden. A quick and easy filler. Interesting knitting yarns are also good leaves.
