**MODERATE ** This project is perfect for if you are confident with basic stitches and wish to practice your skills or are new to raised embroidery.
The detailed, fully illustrated instruction will help guide you step by step through the project.
To create dimension, layers of felt are used to pad the large toadstool before the embroidery is applied over the top. The blackberries are embroidered separately using shades of deep purple and highlighted with beads before they are stitched to the main embroidery. Common embroidery stitches and a palette of late summer greens are used to create the variety of leaves.
