Lazy Daisy flower

blue embroidered flowers

The next flower in my freestyle embroidery project is a simple flower with looped petals meeting in the centre.  This is a common style of flower to draw and is easy to do with a lazy daisy stitch.  In fact, the stitch seems to be named after it.

I chose to do mine in blue and clustered them on the ends of some of the long stems.  I used three different shades of blue floss to give a bit of depth.


The lazy daisy stitches are worked from a common centre point, and there are five stitches for each flower.  Spacing and size are fairly consistent, but I don’t bother marking them.  A bit of variety gives it a natural, organic look.  Often people add stitches to the centre of the flower, but I chose not to since I had many small flowers clustered together, and I thought it might be a bit busy.
