How to combine a lazy daisy stitch with a bullion stitch
Here are the instructions to embroider a lazy daisy stitch combined with a bullion stitch.
We used the following stitches
for the leaves
Fishbone or leaf stitch stitch 1 thread
for the flower
Lazy daisy stitch 2 threads
Bullion stitch 2 threads
French knots 2 threads 1 wrap
We used House of Embroidery varigated stranded cotton Bush 8 for the leaves and DMC Color Variations cotton floss 4100 for the flower.
If I present you the drawing “naked”, it is for explaining how the stitch will be positioned in relation to the tracing of the design.
The smallest circle (center) will be embroidered at the end with French knots and, of course, is the heart of the flower.
The middle circle is the one that hosts the lazy daisy part of the combined stitch and the largest one will be used for the bullion stitch part.
The leaves surrounding the flowers are embroidered with leaf stitch, we have already spoken about it.
Start to work at the top of the leaf and down towards the stem using 1 thread.
For the lazy daisy part of the stitch, start as for a normal lazy daisy stitch but leave the needle in the fabric and the thread under the needle.
Pass the needle through the thread as for a normal bullion stitch but without folding it back and keeping the needle flat on the fabric.
