This is a beautiful yet simple vintage collection titled Free Standing Leaves. If you don't enjoy hooping large projects this is the perfect technique for you. All of the leaves are embroidered on organza, cut out and then applied to your project. This is a fun technique by itself, but to make it even more interesting we used lace fabrics as the applique for a vintage look! The following pages will teach you how to create free standing applique designs and give you exciting project ideas as well. Enjoy!
