When I first found smooth purl (zardosi thread) in my small town a few years back, I was so excited that I decided to experiment with it. The results were these flowers which I created from various stitches.I had only a small amount of the thread then, so I was somewhat stingy and kept recycling it for the various flowers that you can see below.In the end, fix it onto the fabric using a thin layer of fabric glue.
This is a twisted lazy daisy stitch petals.
Another twisted lazy daisy stitch variation.

I will share with you some more smooth purl flowers in my next post.
