Step 2: Start sewing from tip top in 'tear drop' loops, from larger, smaller, smallest.
See 2 below.
You now have a good strong base to sew your leaf so the threads will all hang
together when you wash away the stabilizer.
Once the leaves are completed I rinse out most, but not all, of the stabilizer in warm water. By leaving a smidgeon of the stabilizer in the leaf, it acts like a bendable stiffener when the leaf is dry, making it somewhat poseable.
