This beautiful stylized leaf and meander design is thought to have originated during the Byzantine Empire. It employs backstitch to great effect to outline the light blue stitches and throw the design into high relief.

Finished size of embroidery is 16.5 x 16.5 inches (your hem technique will add a bit more to the finished size of the embroidery)

Worked over 210 x 210 sts.


Kit contains 13-count cotton fabric (imported from Greece), floss, John James size 24 tapestry needle, and pattern.
