Leaves A collection of Leaf Directions using Brazilian Embroidery Threads by Cheryl SchulerLeaves

Brazilian Embroidery Leaf Instruction Booklet

Instructions for leaves using Brazilian Embroidery Thread.
Leaf types are abundant in all pictures and bouquets. This is your guide to add life to your design.
Try using boucle for a nubbly look. Use variegated colors for a Coleus look. Use Frost for a stiffer look.
Make leaves with bullions and cast-ons.  There is no reason that all your leaves need to be satin stitched.


Includes two prints to stitch!
