Where to start?
I suggest starting with the text first. I use back stitch for my text.
For all my flowers, I start with the flower first and then add the stem.
Petals—satin stitch. Do the middle petal first then the sides.
Stem—straight stitch. Just connect it to the bottom and add some straight leaves.
Light Pink Flowers
Flower—straight stitch (form a circle by layering the stiches.) Stem—back stitch.
Petals - lazy daisy stitch. Start at the top and fan out. Stem -straight stitch. Petals—lazy daisy stitch.
Petals—lazy daisy stitch (Stitch the petals in a circle and you can add as many petals as you wish. I didn’t add pollen on these flowers but you can by doing a French knot.)
Rose—woven wheel stitch. (When I use the woven wheel stitch, I make a 5 pointed star and then weave the thread around the spikes. If you still have questions, I made a video on knottydickens.com demonstrating how to make this rose you’ll find it under “workshop.”)
Stem—stem stitch. Leaves—lazy daisy stitch.
*I always stitch flower, stem, then foliage.*
Petals—satin stitch. Stem—straight stitch.
If you don’t like using satin stitch, take a look at needlenthread.com and there are many different leaf options.
Here’s a close-up for you.
Don’t forget to make sure that all of your flowers have stems. ;)
It’s time to start filling in some of those spaces.
Petals—5 pointed straight stitch flower. Stem—back stitch.

For the sunflower petals, I actually layer my petals on top of each other. Do a bottom layer and then a top.
