Autumn leaves

Here you will find the necessary pictures and instructions to help you in completing the “Autumn leaves” design

It is the same instructions you will find accompanying the printed linen that you can buy as usual from HERE in our online shop. The color pictures displayed in this post are supposed to give you a clear view of the way we have embroidered each design.

The color list is included in the kit and is also available on our website.
