The Lazy Daisy Stitch is the sweetest member of the looped embroidery stitch family. Arrange this gentle stitch around a group of French Knots and viola! You have a charming little flower.
Scatter the Lazy Daisy Stitches randomly across the fabric surface and build soft edged texture like the leaves on the tree tops of this little quilt. You may want to call the stitch by it’s other name, Detached Chain Stitch, when using it this way.
The Lazy Daisy Stitch or Detached Chain Stitch has so many uses in embroidery. It builds soft texture and creates shapes on the surface of fabric. It is a pleasant, old fashioned stitch giving comfort and warmth like grandma’s cookies….without the calories.
