Feather Stitch leaf


Feather stitch is one of those stitches that almost has built in leaves.  In the freestyle embroidery project, I used the feather stitch as a long stem with many branches and clusters of French knots as flowers, but the green gives the impression of leaves, even though there aren’t any leaves stitched.

If a feather stitch had no flowers, it could look like a vine with many small leaves. I made my stitches balanced with one to the right and then one to the left, but you can do what you want to fit the space you have.
