Last week at work I was thinking about leaves, and I decided I wanted to make a large head kerchief with corners that looks like leaves.
I finished it a few days ago and have gotten a Lot of comments on the social medias from people who also want to make one, so hopefully this post will answer all your leafkerchief related questions.
It's a pretty simple project to make, just tedious.
I based my design on an elm leaf.
|Some elm leaves.|
|A scan of my pattern.|
|My mother suggested I include a ko-fi link here, so here it is|
No pressure though! This is very much a free pattern!
|I marked both ends on all 4 pieces this way|
and cut them off with a 1 cm seam allowance.
|The square & facings, right sides together.|
slipstitch in dark green silk thread. When folding in the bits near the corners I unpicked the very end of the seam (which I had not backstitched).
