This heart shaped embroidery of acorns was inspired by the interesting shapes and textures acorns and their leaves create. The design uses a variety of handstitched embroidery stitches. When working my designs, I like to incorporate a variety of fabrics to create a foundation to work the design and a mixture of  threads.  I will demonstrate how using a variety of fabrics can create interesting backgrounds to stitch designs. The project uses linen fabric, muslin and embroidery threads.  A list of sewing requirements, template and instruction prompt sheet will be provided.

Note: I am conducting this Zoom workshop on behalf of Sew and So’s, 14 Upper Olland Street, Bungay, Suffolk. NR35 1BG.
