Flower stitch 2

The flower made with this stitch is bigger compared to the previous one (Flower stitch ) but the method is almost the same.

Divide a 4cm diameter circle into 12.Transfer the 12 points onto the fabric.Draw a small circle in the middle of this circle (just big enough to fit in a sequin).draw straight lines connecting 2 opposite points and passing through the center of the circle.Draw more lines to form a star.

These are the points on each petal.

Bring up the needle at A.Pull through.Go back into A and bring the needle up at B.Wrap the thread under the needle and pull through.

Go back into B, come up at C, wrap thread under the needle and pull through.

Enter the fabric at D.

Repeat the same for AE à EF à FD.

This is the final part of the petal.

Continue in the same manner for the other petals.

Decorate the center with a sequin, stone or beads.

This stitch can also be done on a mirror.The tutorial is here.
