A tendril tree is a suitable small design for practicing forks. The original measures about 5.5 cm x 6.7 cm.
Coton à broder No. 16 is used for Coral Knot stitches. It is worked on 16/cm thread count linen.
Remember, at the point where a tendril will fork off the main stem or shape, make a wider Coral Knot stitch.
After finishing, the embroidered piece is washed (boiled), starched, and ironed.
The result is a nice decoration for manifold uses – quick and easy to embroider. In a future post I will show one of the possible uses – a small gift bag.
