Second needlewoven leaves tutorial

It's take a time wile I published second Needlewoven leaves tutorial .
Today I want to tell you about 3D leaves that you can do without fabrics.
1. Drow the leaf on baking paper as you want and do a points in same distance on the picture. I did only points, you don't need more. You can see throw baking paper so you can make a points easly just put a pictire under paper.
2. Stitch throw paper in next directions
1 and all not even numbers from back side to right site of work .
2 and all even numbers in opposite direction from right to back side.
Remember you must keep free thread about 2 - 3 inch in point number 1. Just press thread to the paper during the first stitch with finger when you pull the tread.
You will received this on the right side
and this one on the back side. You don't have the long stitches on the back side.
3. You thread now in the up corner of the leaf go in and out to the point number 1. Don't stitch throw paper!
4. After this you do woven leaf usual way. Don't stitch throw the paper. I stitch first one side from the central line. So I can use 2 shades of green or take a second piece of the thread. I don't use the long thread. I just add the new tread always in point number 1 and keep a free piece of tread obout 2-3 inch 5. This is almoust finished leaf.You can see the threads on back side of the paper.
6. Pull the paper off . Leaf done !
You can pull the threads throw the fabric with needle or do couching stitches. It's you choise.
Happy stitching

This is fascinating! I saw it on Allie's blog. Do you mind if I try it on needlepoint with waste canvas? It has my mind coming alive now - and I want to try it. I get so much inspiration from you very talented ladies!! My son-in-law is Jewish, so our year seems one long, running holiday. Great for the children!
