With autumn shortly upon us, you might be interested in some seasonal embroidery patterns for fall. How about starting with an acorn and leaf border? This would look great on a shirt pocket, on table linens, on a sweater or skirt, or just about anything else you want to use it for.

Some stitching suggestions:
A good opportunity to dig through your stash! Use simple outline stitches and multiple colors on the leaves – oranges, yellows, browns, reds, even greens! Use a darker brown on the cap of the acorn, and fill it in with close French knots. Satin stitch the nut in a lighter brown.
You can scale the image up or down on your computer or on a photocopy machine. You can also make the pattern longer or shorter by tracing or eliminating some of the repeats.
Whatever you do with it, have fun!
