This is a PDF delivered via a download link to your email. This purchase does not include the materials kits.

This PDF has been updated in 2023 to reflect the changes in the new materials kit. The revision involves the use of 23 colors of DMC stranded cotton to embroider the project, as well as different ground fabric.

The Leafy Tree is a beautiful contemporary design embroidered with a variety of stitches, colors, and color combinations.

With this project, you will learn how to blend colors for a smooth and seamless color transition that reflects Nature's yearly transition from summer to autumn.

The Leafy Tree is suitable for determined beginners and beyond who know the basics of hand embroidery (how to transfer a design, thread a needle, use a hoop, follow stitch diagrams, work with one and two strands of floss, etc.).

The design is approximately 5.25" high x 4.5" wide. It can be enlarged as desired, but the thread weight should be adjusted to accommodate a larger size design.
