Embroider a floral design onto a plain shirt collar…
Turn a simple plain shirt into something special by stitching something pretty onto its collar. Now we’ve shown you how to sew a classic Lazy Daisy stitch, with our floral design in a hoop, try stitching a similar design (also by expert sewist Zoë Patching) adapted onto a yellow shirt from Primark.
All you need to do is make a trace of the template above, then, using thread in the colour of your choice, work the stem in backstitch, and follow the Lazy Daisy stitch instructions above. If you like the effect, it works equally well creating stitched details on pockets, cuffs and waistbands too.
