Monstera Leaf pattern

Thank you for being a member of my mailing list! I hope you enjoy this little bonus project!

What you'll need:

  • The Monstera Leaf Pattern Download.
  • Pen, pencil, or soluble embroidery transfer pen.
  • 5 inch embroidery hoop.
  • Embroidery floss in the color of your choice.
  • Black pearl cotton size 12.
  • Embroidery needle. I recommend a DMC Embroidery Needle size 5.
  • Scissors and thread snips.
  • Craft glue -- any kind that is compatible with fabric and wood or plastic (depending on your hoop choice).

Method:

  1. Use the LIght Box Method to transfer the monstera leaf from your pattern download to your fabric.
  2. Using 3 strands of embroidery floss, fill in the monstera leaf using extra long satin stitches angling out from the center of the leaf.
  3. Create an outline using a couched stitch or backstitch with the pearl cotton.
  4. Trim off any excess fabric and glue remaining fabric edge to the top edge of the inner hoop.
  5. Remember that this is your project and all of these methods/steps are optional. Feel free to deviate, experiment, and explore to develop a process that works for you and to create something that you love.
  6. You did it! Now you are ready to hang your piece on the wall or gift it to a friend!
