BAMBOO LEAF Embroidery Pattern
The Bamboo Leaf pattern is a small decorative embroidery design for pillowcases, clothing or simply as a wall hanging in the embroidery frame. Thanks to the silk embroidery thread ITO Iki, the embroidered image has a beautiful shine that changes with light and thus creates light and shadow effects. The monochrome version in grey looks almost like a watercolor painting. The variations in green tones are more naturalistic. The pattern gets more depth by using light and dark hues, even if they are chosen abstractly.
The pattern contains all information about colors and stitches used, as well as the template for copying to the fabric, which can of course also be enlarged or reduced.
