The Flowers Rikrack Embroidery Kit is great for beginners. Freshly picked flowers from the garden are in two shades of coral on a warm coral preprinted background.

Stitches: Back Stitch, Satin Stitch, Daisy Stitch, French Knot *optional

*Use three strands of floss

* See the Stitch Guide and Getting Started for more Info

Colors: DK Coral DMC# 351

LT Coral DMC# 353 *I recommend doing the dark first

Solid areas are Satin Stitch. Start in the center of the shape and fill in one side then the other. Use the weave of the fabric as a guide to keep stitches parallel. Make the stitches slightly bigger than the printed area so that the printing does not show. Some areas are left unstitched.

Butterfly stripes are Back Stitch. Leaves on stem are Daisy Stitch and the stem is Back Stitch. X in center of flowers is a cross stitch. French Knots should be done last. They can be left out if like.
