Buttonhole-knot lazy daisy

In this tutorial, I'm going to show how you  can transform a normal lazy daisy into a beautiful flower using buttonhole-knot technique.

Embroider a lazy daisy stitch.Bring the needle up at the base of the lazy daisy and start making buttonhole knots from one end to another.

This is the completed petal.Make sure that you make equal number of knots on both sides of the petal.And, also make sure you make enough knots to cover the whole lazy daisy or else the petal will curl.

This is the completed flower.If the flower curls too much, place a piece of cloth on your embroidery piece and press it with a hot iron.
