This month’s SAL features a vintage pattern that I’ve modified a bit. It’s a heart for February with a bit of a botanical twist.
1 8″ x 8″ swatch of fabric
Size 9 embroidery needle
Embroidery floss in your choice of colors
Tips and Tricks:
- I’ll be using two threads throughout the design – possibly three.
- I’ll be printing the design at 50% so it’s roughly 4″ x 5″.
- I’m going with a primary color palette – at least for now. It could all change in an instant. Watch this space for updates!
Stitches I’ll be using in this design include:
- Back Stitch
- Satin Stitch
- Split Stitch
- Fishbone Stitch
- Lazy Daisy Stitch
You should use whatever stitches you prefer or try something new!
Be sure to add pics of both your work in progress and your completed pieces on Instagram and tag #NewLeafSAL so we can all see what everyone is getting up to!
Most importantly, have fun!
