The lazy daisy stitch is just like doing a chain stitch but instead of carrying on the chain, you just have one chain and make it look like a petal.
- Bring the needle up from the back of the fabric. Create a loop.
- Put your needle back down near to where you came up from the back of the fabric.
- Decide how long you want your loop to be for your first petal. Bring the needle up and make a small stitch to hold it in place. Go across to the other side and create another loop and create another short stitch to hold it in place.
- Inbetween those two loops create another stitch and go to the other side and create another stitch. Continue in this way to create your lazy daisy.
- The final petal should fit neatly in the space that’s left. So make a loop, take your needle to the back of the fabric, bring it up again and make sure the thread is underneath the needle and pull and then create a small stitch to hold it in place. And there you have the complete lazy daisy stitch.
