Fresh Summer Flowers

Tuesday, July 1, 2014

CF_SummerFlowers1CF_SummerFlowers3My potted flowers are all in full bloom, giving me seemingly endless blossoms for vases and a yard full of color – and they’ve inspired this week’s free pattern!

I’ve put together a basket of fresh summer flowers you can trace and stitch on a variety of ready-made items. Stitch them on pillows and crisp, cool cotton sheets, or embroider them on a tablecloth to drape over the picnic table.

CF_SummerFlowers4The PDF pattern features a matched set of simple daisy patterns, including borders, individual motifs, and a basket of blossoms. There are six (6) designs in all.

The colors used are just a suggestion – feel free to use your favorite color of DMC Embroidery Floss when working the designs. The blossoms would also look lovely worked in DMC Color Variations Floss or our Satin Floss, featuring a bit of shine!

CF_SummerFlowers2Stitch the flowers in easy, basic embroidery stitches – lazy daisy stitches, the leaves in detached chain stitch, the stems in back stitch or outline stitch, and the small flower clusters and flower centers in French knots. Visit our embroidery page for diagrams for working the stitches, or refer to Emma’s Embroidery Stitch Tool.
