Wee Folks Embroidery Designs

These are the embroidery designs I used for my Wee Folk mini-quilt (EDIT: you can now also see the finished quilt here).  You can download/print a PDF of the designs here.  All embroidery has been sewn using two strands of embroidery floss.

 The two mushroom blocks used the same threads/stitches.  White for the mushroom tops, and Anchor colour 363 for the stalks.  Mushroom top outline is done using stem stitch.  The large/medium spot are satin stitch outlined with backstitch and the small spots are french knots.  The stems are sewing in backstitch.

The top of the acorn is outlined in stem stitch, and the other details are backstitched in Anchor colour 905.  The nut is sewn in backstitch using Anchor colour 100.

The centre vein of the leaves is done in stem stitch and the outline in backstitch, both using Anchor colour 211.

I would love to see photos of your work if you use these embroidery designs in any of your crafts.
