Lazy daisies are made from individual chain stitches arranged in a circle. 1. Stitch up at A. 2. Stitch back down at A. Do not pull the thread all the way through. 3. Stitch up at B, just above A. Pass the needle through the thread loop. 4. Stitch down at C, holding the loop of thread in place. 5. The finished petal looks like this. 6. Make more stitches in a circle.
I ❤ embroidery . . . Working the Feathered Chain Stitch From Cheryl Fall, former About.com Guide- The Feathered Chain Stitch is a decorative hand embroidery stitch that utilizes detached chain stitches arranged in a zig-zag pattern as if working the feather stitch, forming a hybridized stitch. This highly textured surface embroidery stitch is wider than a standard chain stitch, making it perfect for use in wide bands and rows.
