The stitches to be used in this project are: satin stitch, long and short stitch, and stem stitch.
Now let us see how to fill a part of a leaf using satin stitch. Satin stitch is a lovely stitch which gives a smooth, shiny, and glossy effect to a design. I am going to use Anchor thread no. 309 for this. You can find out the equivalent DMC threads through the conversion charts available on the following web sites.
