Finishing Leaves with a Wired Edge: The Movie

Kelly of Start Art Designs just posted a free video demonstrating how to finish leaves with a wired edge.  

This is particularly interesting given how many folks are stitching the Kam Wenzloff leaf wreath from Needlepoint Now magazine.  It's a long video but shows everything you need to do if you want leaves you can bend into position.  By the way, the list of supplies Kelly mentions is on her website here.  Note that I think you want to use the thinner interfacing, not the extra firm interfacing.  This allows the leaf to be more bendable.

By the way, I couldn't find the finishing video Kelly says was posted on Needlepoint Now's website but there is a written tutorial here.
