Just follow the lines using one easy stitch to create vintage-style branches.
This branch pattern is enlarged and angled around a corner to suit the pillow's shape, then sewn with a stem stitch. The stem stitch offers a stronger profile than a backstitch. Clusters of beads add pretty detailing.
Remove pillow form, and lay pillow top flat. Copy the Leaf Branch pattern to the desired size. Follow the manufacturer's instructions for the transfer paper.
Position two Leaf Branch designs on the bottom left corner of the pillow top, tape in place, and transfer the designs to the fabric.
Using one strand of perle cotton, follow the pattern using a stem stitch (see images). Add a stem-stitched line 1/4 inch from the outside edge. Sew clusters of seed beads along the branches.
