    For the daisy petals, use a lazy daisy stitch: Start at the base of the petal and pull
    your thread through, making a loop the size of the petal and re-inserting your
    thread close to your initial hole. With the loop still slack, make a small stitch at
    the top of the daisy over the thread to hold the petal shape.
