The second project of my craft thing is hand embroidery stitch. This is my first attempt to stitch. As usual, internet is my main source of learning everything. Pattern shown is 100% from my own idea. My hand embroidery begins with a few basic stitches. I was using satin fabric, DMC thread and 6" loop.

  • 1) Satin stitch - big flowers and buds
  • 2) Detached Chain aka lazy daisy stitch - yellow flowers
  • 3) French Knot - small pink and red flowers
  • 4) Stem Stitch - stems
  • 5) Fish bone stitch - leaves

For those, who want to start learning embroidery, the link below is a very good guide for learning and practising
