The April Birth Flower is the Daisy

The Birth Flower for April is both Sweetpeas and Daisies. I decided to go with Daisies as they make beautiful and versatile designs for hand embroidery… Hope you enjoy!

Stitching your daisies…

Once you have the template downloaded (from the link below) – transfer the daisies on to your fabric ready to stitch.

For the Daisy petals choose 2 contrasting colours – one for the main colour and the second for adding some contrast over the top. I chose a pink/purple combination. I used DMC stranded threads – 2 strands for all the stitching.

Satin stitch each of the petals, working your way around the whole flower.

When all the petals are satin stitched in the main colour, take 2 strands of your chosen contrasting colour and stitch long vertical straight stitches around the flower – 2 on each petal and sometimes in between the petals where there is a gap.

Using a third colour, straight stitch around the centre of the flower (as in the photo). This will just add a little bit more interest to the flower as a whole.

Finally stitch some french knots to fill the centre gap to complete the flower.

For the stems, choose a green of your choice and Stem stitch down the main stem and then satin stitch the leaves.

For the second daisy, I used the same colours but just switched them around for a different effect.

So there you have it, these daisies would look wonderful as brooches, on cards, or as a simple wall hanging.

Happy Stitching!
