This is a gorgeous shisha stitch variation used in hand embroidery. Shisha stitches are used to hold little pieces of mirror (or anything else!) to fabric. This particular variation is colorful and bold - and with a little practice, you'll find it easy to do with this step-by-step tutorial.
I ❤ embroidery . . . I’m calling it the Chain Stitch Spider Daisy for two reasons: It’s a daisy created with the detached chain stitch & the ribbed spider web stitch, & when you look at it from the side, the petals are a bit too reminiscent of spider legs! This is a neat little flower technique, if you want to add simple flowers with a bit of texture & color contrast on them to your embroidery projects. You can never have too many flower ideas!
