I designed this little ornament using leftover canvas (see the line?) and knitting yarn for a great site called Craft Leftovers.
You can read about it and download the pattern on that blog.
It’s a fin adaptation of a leaf quilt block and uses all straight stitches. Because it’s a diamond, it is easy to finish yourself. I stitched it in very leafy colors, but the design is abstract enough that it could be done in almost any color scheme.
It also didn’t take long to do only a couple of hours. So sit back, grab your stash and the ends of your canvas and take a break from all the stitching you have to do.
