Here I show you how to stitch a lazy daisy – perfect for making teardrop shapes that work well for petals and leaves – and the tips of antennae. You’ll see it’s very similar to the chain stitch that we learned last week.
There’s a bonus lesson on how to pull out those pesky loops that sometimes form on the surface of your fabric while you stitch!! I’ve been waiting for that to happen while I was filming and it finally did. 🙂
Want to practice your lazy daisy stitches? This tree pattern has a ton of them!
