In this project, leaves of different shades and forms are piped repeatedly to create a dense background of natural greenery. These elements are highlighted using different strokes of stitch piping. Each stitch piping identifies with a kind of leaf. Christina will go over each and every stroke that you will need to be able to recreate this evocative project.

A burst of striking tropical flowers – Hibiscus, Plumeria, Marigold and Billy balls will be taught as well. These bright, colourful flowers will harmonize well with the various kinds of tropical leaves.

It seems like a lot of work in the beginning. It seems intimidating. But rest assured that Christina will teach the techniques to you the easiest, friendliest possible way.
