Directions
1.
Cut or tear the ecru fabric to 18 x 21                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                           inches.

8.

Sew the bars across the leaf, followed by the center vein. When sewing the gimp cord to the piece, sew beyond
