What you will need?
- Any fabric.
- Embroidery hoop, 15cm (6″) (Bigger if you are working on a larger design) ( You can purchase a set of 6 hoops from Amazon for your basic needs.)
- Tapestry needle
- Embroidery thread (You can buy this pack of 36 shades of the DMC embroidery floss.)
How many strands of floss do you need for making the Long Tailed Daisy?
You can use all 6 strands of the floss. But if you are working on a finer design, then start with 2 strands of floss and increase the number of strands according to your design. I have used all 6 strands of floss for this stitch.
Step by Step Pictorial Process of making the Tailed Chain Stitch
1. Start by bringing the thread at point A. Again insert from just beside point A to point B at the desired length.
2. Wrap the thread around the needle from underneath as shown above. Pull the thread to form a chain stitch.
3. Insert at point C. Unlike the lazy daisy, point C is a little further away from the chain.
4. For making the above pattern, you can alternate between a long stitch and a short stitch.
Tips for working the Long Tailed Daisy
- This is a pretty easy stitch if you know the lazy daisy stitch. All you have to do is work the straight stitch farther away from the chain stitch.
What is this stitch used for?
- You can make beautiful flowers, patterns with this stitch.
- This stitch can be replaced with the lazy daisy stitch too.
