“Sew Tidy” uses 4 fabrics, 2 skeins of DMC and 2 skeins of variegated thread. The wreath panel combines embroidery with semi-detached applique leaves and a dimensional fabric flower. The leaves and flower are made with double-sided fabric and are only partly stitched down, allowing them to sit up from the background fabric. This adds texture and dimension to the design.
