Flower Embroidered Shoulders on Sweater

Picture 1 of 8

Materials:
– A sweater
– Embroidery thread (I used DMC in colors #817, #807, #597, #803, and #563)
– Embroidery needle
– Embroidery hoop (I used a 6 in hoop for the main shoulder seam section and a 4 in hoop to fill in a few flowers around the edge.)
– Scissors
1. Center the hoop on the shoulder seams of your sweater. Make sure the sweater fabric is tight in the hoop.
2. Select a color for the flower petals and knot the end. I used the “lazy daisy” stitch pictured above. If you are new to the lazy daisy stitch, you can find instructions here.
3. Once you finish all of the petals, weave in the end under a few stitches on the back side and tie off with a knot. Cut the excess ends.
4. Add three or four french knots to the center of the flower. Tie off with a knot on the back side. Cut the excess ends.
5. Fill in the hoop with a variety of flowers in different sizes and color combinations.
6. Repeat these steps on the second shoulder.
