Mini Autumn Leaves Embroidery Machine Design Details. Looks like "Designs by Sick" is starting to run the stitching "grain" direction in multiple ways, to best mimic the real thing in embroidery. Most of these are done that way!
-- Bring your needle up at A, the point where the knot is desired, and pull it through. -- Holding the needle parallel to the fabric, wrap the ribbon around it two to three times. Insert the tip of the needle at B, a thread or two from A. Gently slide wrapped ribbon down the needle to meet the fabric, and pull the needle and trailing ribbon through.
Bring your needle up and pull it through. Insert your needle tip into the fabric about 1/8 inch from where it came up. Form a loop of ribbon on the surface of the fabric and hold the loop in place as you pull the needle and trailing ribbon through. Continuing to hold the loop in place, bring the needle back up through the ribbon at the base of the loop.
-- Bring your needle up at A, and pull it through. -- Insert your needle at B, about 1/2 inch from A. Holding ribbon below your stitching line, bring your needle back up at C, about 1/8 inch from B, and pull it through. Continue in the same manner, making sure the ribbon is always held below the stitching line.
