Leaf Stitch

Needs Thinking

Uses:  Foliage, Birds, Backgrounds, Clothes, Rolling Hills, Trees

To stitch, start with the tip of the leaf and work your way down.  Stitch on both sides of the leaf as you travel to the lower portion of the leaf.  You may need to use your finger nail to move the lower portion of the leaf as you stitch a new tip.


Careful counting will create a lovely pattern on your canvas.  Try using an overdyed thread for an interesting effect.


This stitch count is accepted for Master Craftsman for Canvas Embroidery by The Embroiderers' Guild of America.
