Finished size 30.5cm/12” square to suit a 10” square frame
A little bird sits in a wreath filled with all things Christmas.
This redwork design is given extra depth and texture with the addition of dimensional holly leaves created with semi-detached applique. Peepers and a simple border complete this small Christmas project.
Learn how to add a little dimension to your projects with semi-detached applique. Double – sided fabric leaves are partly attached, allowing them to sit up from the background and cast a shadow. This simple technique adds depth and texture to your needlework.
