Holly Berry - silk and linen

Holly Berry

The Silk Berry is a charming little thing – slightly more than two inches long. I've stitched all of that background in pretty buttermilk floss with a bit of texture; the subtle overdye in the thread is just lovely. It's topped with a few leaves cut from scraps of felted wool and a sparkly red charm.

The Linen Berry version is perfect if you want something larger and don't have the time for stitching all of that background on the gauze.

NOTE: Silk and linen berry chartpaks have been sold separately for some time, and copies are likely still available from numerous retailers. However, due to the lack of silk gauze available for the foreseeable future, Holly Berry will be sold as a “partner” chartpak. This new format will include instructions and charts for both berries - but no silk gauze.
