Hand Embrodery - Lazy Daisy

This is often used to give petal designs and small floral patterns. It consists of a single loop of chain than the continuous pattern. Lazy daisy is one of the extremely easy stitches. This stitch need not be limited to just petals and leaves, but can be used for more complicated designs too.
Bring the thread out at the base of the petal..
Put in the needle near the base and bring it out through at the tip of the petal, but don’t pull the needle out completely.
Now, loop the thread around the needle.

Pull out the needle out to tighten the loop.
Put in the needle just outside the chain created and that will finish the lazy daisy stitch. Note: This stand alone stitch can be used freely to be a part of any design.

Left; Daisy petals are filled with a green straight stitch. Right: Daisy's are filled and a French Knot was added.
