Sunday Stitch School – no. 60 Petal stitch

Petal stitch is a very easy and quick stitch.  As usual I use Perle 8 thread on Aida for the Sunday Stitch Schoolwork.

I curved the stitch in the next photo..really easy again, so I worked a back to back row traveling in the opposite direction.  This was even faster as I had the previous petals to align with.  This will make great fern leaves.  The flower centres are very small and a bit untidy.  I used fabric for this one.  Queenie’s   lesson can be found here

Deepa also has a version here 

which is worked on cloth not Aida.

  1. Love this stitch Maureen – I’ve not seen or done it but must have a try 🙂 x

    • I’m pleased you like the stitch. It is well worth trying.

  2. Beautiful stitching. Yes, perfect for fern if you do them opposite each other.

    • Thank you Queenie. I can see it as palm leaves too, swags for flowers and possibly many more uses.

  3. Another stitch that I needed to be reminded of….thank you. Fern leaves, for sure – and vines too.

    • Oh yes, vines and some with flowers added.

  4. Interesting to see your two versions, thanks!

    • It’s fun to see what else can be added to, or changed.
