Hello, I’m Amy Barickman, founder of Indygo Junction. Welcome to the eighth & final video tutorial in the Crossroads Embroidery Series. Including this video, we’ve shared 6 stitch tutorials along with a FREE embroidery design with each tutorial. Last time, we learned the Chain Stitch and today I’m excited to teach you the Lazy Daisy.

In the first two videos of this series, I told you all about the basics. Learn about embroidery needles, thread and foundation fabrics in my first video. In my second video, get the basics on tracing & transferring designs including my favorite method – Sulky’s Stick N Stitch.

Today’s FREE design is our Peas & Carrots motifs. I love it stitched onto a bib! It also is the perfect companion for our earlier design – Celery & Tomoto – to match a fun matching dish towel set.

The Lazy Daisy is the perfect stitch for flower petals or stems.

Let’s get started:
