In my one of my newest patterns called “Whimsical Flowers” I added some new types of flowers. Among them is the wrapped puff flower. It’s a fun flower to make but can be a bit confusing to understand. To help you avoid mistakes, I have created full written step by step instructions and a tutorial video. You will find both in this post.
This flower is made by wrapping your thread around horizontal foundation stitches. Each petal is made up of three wraps or stitches. Each of the first 4 rows adds 1 petal each. The last row or two decrease the number of petals. It is best to make a wrapped puff flower with 6 strands of floss on your needle. This will give your finished flower a nice full look.
Watch me stitch in real time as I make a wrapped puff flower. I’ll walk you through step by step, showing you exactly where to put your needle next.
If you struggle following these directions or have any other questions about embroidery, I would love to hear from you. Yon can leave a comment here on this post or you can email me here.
