Learn how to make repeating leaf stitch motifs by embroidering on paper with Karen Barbé. This full set of digital materials shows you how to make 12 designs and includes:

  • A 12-page, full color instruction booklet with photographs for every step of the process
  • 12 pages of design examples with patterns at three levels of complexity in four seasonal colorways
  • Hole-punching templates for three different designs

Appropriate for total beginners and intermediate stitchers alike. My six-year-old was able to do this project independently after I punched the holes.

Designs are optimized for 8 x 5 in notebooks but can be sized up or down. The repeating motifs can also be rearranged to suit a surface of any size or shape.
