Here is a quick sketch of some rose leaves right outside my studio door. Below is my interpretation of the sketch in fabric using the embellisher machine to “appliqué” the felt leaf shapes to the wool felt background. Veins were embroidered using the buttonhole stitch.
For the heart, again I “fused” the basic shape to the felt with the embellisher and added beaded buttonhole stitches. I used a single strand of DMC embroidery floss, doubled, for the beading. I found the directions for beaded buttonhole stitches in this PDF file on making a cute beaded and embroidered evening bag.
