For the brooch above I have used a back stitch for the stem. For the flowers I have used a stitch called lazy daisy also known as detached chain stitch.
And for the brooch above I have used a whipped back stitch for the stem of the flower this variety gives a twisted effect. For the flowers themselves I have chosen to do the humble french knot, I have to say it is one of my favourite stitches to sew. And finally for the leaves I have used a fishbone stitch which is great for ideal for making leaves.
Hope you enjoy the designs and let me know what you think.
