Maple Leaf

Standard

Tulle & Thread

This was fun! I traced a picture of a maple leaf onto some Sulky Soluble stabilizer, put two pieces of tulle inside the stabilizer, then put on my free motion foot and thread painted my heart out!

You’ll notice that there are a lot of gaps between the thread. That was deliberate. I was trying to create something lacy and see-through. That part wasn’t completely successful. I needed to use less thread for the see-through effect, or more thread for a realistic leaf. But the sewing is quick and the result is very pleasing.
