Holly Brooch Pattern

I designed this last year, and had a request for pattern

the two leaves are  made with 2 shuttles and rings and chains are 4 double stitches


going up one side and down another instead of just making rings on each side and one thin chain you have double chain in middle for strength,  

I usually work with small thread but this, I feel looks better with size 8 pearl cotton and large seed beads , my post on December 2015 looks nice with smaller beads too if you want to check that out. 

I left long thread ends loose on the 3 rings or berries,  4 picots separated by 4,3,3,4 double stitches ,  I tied the set together with thread from berries and then attached first part of the pin with the red and then use a thread of green for the part that attaches up into the leaf. 

I will try to get someone to help me with the PDF of the pattern so it can be downloaded soon.,for now the picture will have to do.
Have a great week 🎄🎄🎄🎄🎄

    1. You can in a few hours and the large thread is fun. I gave my first one away so I had to make another.
