WinterBerry Cottage – Week 9


This week we are stitching part of the decorative border…

Use 2 strands throughout unless stated otherwise.

Flower Motif…

You will need the following colours… #3834, #3042, #902, #154

#154: Straight stitch the small stem and then the central lines – they cross over one another like a star stitch.

#3834: Back stitch around the circular petals – keep your stitches tiny to create a nice curve.

#3042: Satin stitch inside each petal.

#902 (1 strand): straight stitch a couple of lines on the top edge of each petal.

Leaf Motif…

#926: Fishbone stitch each leaf and split stitch the stem.

Repeat the leaf and flower motifs all around the edge of the design and week 9 is complete…

Make sure you show off your wonderful stitching in the Happy Stitching FB Group or on Instagram with #stitchdoodlesembroidery.

If you need help along the way just ask in the FB group as there are lots of lovely people stitching along with you who can offer lots of advice and support if needed.

Week 10 (the final week!) – is on the blog Wednesday 19th April… See you then!

Happy Stitching!
