This flower tutorial is super simple and great to learn as a beginner. It uses two embroidery stitches: lazy daisy stitch and french knot, and can make for a really cute design to embellish clothes or to make some embroidery hoop art with.
Lazy Daisy Stitch
For the flower, we will be making 5 lazy daisy stitches. (This is also commonly called a detached chain stitch.) Draw five dots and a center point on a piece of fabric. Start by pulling your thread through the back of the fabric. Go back down through the hole you can up through, leaving a loop of thread. Go back up the fabric leaving some space between your initial stitch and catch the loop with your thread. Make a stitch to secure the loop of thread.
Work from the center dot, making 5 of these stitches.
Pull your thread through the back of the fabric. Take the thread in your non-working hand and hold tight. Wrap your needle around the thread 2-3 times. Holding the thread secure still with your non working hand, take the needle back down through the hole you came up through and pull tight.
