The designs of the flowerbeds 29 and 31 can be downloaded HERE

The borders are embroidered on heavy chain stitch with 2 threads.

The large dahlias are embroidered with 2 circles of lazy daisy stitch.

For the stitches of the small circle, I used 1thread and for those of the great circle 2 threads.

The stitches of the outer circle are embroidered in the extension of those of the small circle.

Then, you can insert a stitch between the ones already embroidered to obtain a plump flower.


The daisies are also embroidered with lazy daisy stitch 2 threads.

Embroider 4 stitches to form a cross and then it is necessary to add 2 others in each quarter to obtain an even flower 

To finish, embroider a French knot in the heart of each flower.


With 2 threads, embroider small straight V stitches to mark the outline of each flower before covering the ground with French knots 2 threads 2 wraps.
