Made for curiousfae in the Fabric/Mixed Media Jewelry Swap. Perusing her pins I came across this, it wasn't pinned by her but you know how that goes...one thing leads to another thing leads to "Wow, that would be perfect to make for her!" The artist has a few different styles and colour combos but this was actually just right for Kelli so I went with it.


I started out with a lightly drawn shape then thought I'd better mark out where I wanted each colour to go, I used sharpie since it doesn't rub off on anything once it dries.

The outer edge of the leaf and the stem are lightly wired.

It's tricky blending stitches, or stitch painting I guess it's called.


After cutting the shape out, I thread wrapped the end of the stem.


The back is wool felt with a brooch pin stitched on.

Whatever the question, the answer is always CRAFTING! It's the fix for all the sicks. Makes me feel better every time.

and remember, ALWAYS USE THE GOOD BEADS, YARN, FABRIC!

Love you all, thank you so much for everything. XO

Absolutely stunning. Such detailed color blending and stitching details. Great step photos and descriptions, too! I'm fascinated by "stitch painting," as you called it. Another someday skill to try! Smiley I'm sure your partner was blown away!
