When I started doing this blog 4 years ago, I published a whole series of articles titled “How to embroider …”. They appear in the principal menu under the heading “Techniques”.
And then, I do not know why for, over time, I somewhat neglected this subject.
In this post you will find how to embroider a large leaf (this one measures 8 cm), by unconventionally using basic stitches. To make this design, I used stranded cotton and 3 threads because of the size of the work.
My purpose here is not exactly to embroider a leaf pattern but to take advantage of the large surface available to embroider differently.
In this project, I used stem stitch, chain stitch, lazy daisy stitch, blanket stitch, bullion stitch, and French knots. I explain all these stitches in the “Stitches” section of the menu.
