It also known as detached chain stitch. It is a looped stitch that can be worked alone or in groups. It is often used to give petal designs and small floral or leaf patterns.
EQUIPMENT : Appropriate fabric (linen, aida cloth, silk, calico, cotton, satin, velvet, dress fabric, etc.), embroidery string in different/demanded colors, scissors, embroidery needle and embroidery hoop.
1-Attach your fabric into your embroidery hoop. Make sure your fabric is tight inside the hoop and smooth without wrinkles. Tighten the hoop around your fabric if necessary.
2-Draw the lines that you will follow on your embroidery project onto fabric by embroidery pen. These are the centerlines of your floral leaves.
3-Pass your needle from back to front with thread on the start point which is the beginning of one of the lines that you had drawn.
4-Insert the tip of your needle through return point. Just near to start point, but not the start point on your fabric. From front to back of your fabric.
5-Do not tighten the thread, leave a small loose circle on the front side of the fabric as the size of floral leaf.
6-Return your thread through the fabric from back to front, through the Start Point 2 which is located at the end of your leaf, end of your one of the trace lines. Pass needle inside the loop which you left on the front side of your fabric. Tighten the thread.
7-Insert the tip of your needle through return point 2. Just near to start point 2, but on the other side of thread which is part of the loop / leaf you left on the front side of fabric. From front to back of your fabric.
8-Pass your needle from back to front with thread on the start point 3 which is the beginning of one of the lines that you had drawn (but without leaf yet). This is the starting of second leaf.
9-Repeat the 4, 5, 6, 7 and 8 for the other leaves.
