Leaf Stitch:  

This variation of the satin stitch is a basic for creating leaves in Brazilian embroidery. 

Anchor the knot within the leaf and come up at A, at the tip of the leaf. 

Go down at B, about 1/3 in from the tip.


Work alternating from the left and right of the tip and always go back down at the vein, but move the stitches down the vein as well as down the edges. 

Like any directional satin stitch, keeping the angle pleasing is something that requires practice.
