Empowered Embroidery
Flowers & Leaves

When embroidering motifs like flowers, consider their layers. Embroider the flower on the bottom layer first, then the yellow overlapping one. Stitch the flower petals first, then the leaves, to create a nice, layered look. Add the center of the flower last. You can embroider just the outlines of the designs or fill in the petals with color to create a more dramatic design.
