HAND EMBROIDERY FLOWERS: LAVENDER
For this Lavender, I used 3 strands of embroidery floss. You can choose how many strands you use depending on how larger you draw your pattern. the colors I used are purple and green
Firstly draw your pattern (use pencil or a disappearing marker)
Fill the leaf with a satin stitch. Tutorial here (SATIN STITCH TUTORIAL)
Stitch the Stem with a Stem Stitch (STEM STITCH TUTORIAL HERE)
Once the stem is completed, go in with the lazy daisy stitch. Lazy daisy stitches work great for flower heads. (LAZY DAISY STITCH TUTORIAL HERE)

For this Rose, I used 3 strands of embroidery floss. You can choose how many strands you use depending on how larger you draw your pattern. the colors I used are light pink, yellow/gold, and green.
To Start this embroidery rose, draw the pattern with a pencil or disappearing marker. The Pattern is a simple circle
