Did you know your embroidery machine is a florist? These pretty flowers are made in the hoop! Each bloom part is stitched on two layers of silk organza or cotton organdy, OR one layer of silk velvet backed with a layer of silk organza. Then the petals, parts and leaves are cut out and assembled with a few simple hand stitches. There are four designs in this set, a Daisy, Hydrangea, Rose and Rosebud design. The Rosebud design in the sample photo is attached to the Rose, but may also be used as a stand-alone design. Combine these designs with the Dogwood, Violets and Pansies of the Spring Blooms collection for a truly eye-catching project!
All designs fit in the 4x4 hoop although there are also 5x7 hoopings of grouped designs included for your convenience. Complete step-by-step instructions with illustrations and lots of photos are included in a PDF file. Use these pretty flowers as corsages all by themselves, or add them to other projects for a lovely "grew in my garden" look! Check out how sweet the daisy button cover centers look used as buttons for the back of a little girl dress!
