Jacobean leaves embroidery pattern: 6 of 8


I cheated a little on this leaf. The thing about designing embroideries is that sometimes the picture in your head doesn’t quite work in practice. I loved the idea of a jagged edge, but stitching the “jags” proved tricky. So I may have used a few straight stitches in amongst the stem and outline stitching on either side of this leaf… Oh, and I used stem on the left and outline on the right to create the mirror effect.

Thanks for sharing. Designing and drawing patterns is a lot of work.
