Two weeks ago I saw this lovely pincushion Ati made. She also had a link to her tutorial, so I could make one as a birthday present. I used batik and embroidered a flower. First I made a circle of backstitches and then the petals in double detached chain stitches. This way I could hide the beginnings and ends in the circle. Then I made a spiral trellis stitch. Because it's a large flower I stuffed it a little when I was halfway, so the flower will keep its shape. The ribbon around it is attached with fly stitches in the same colour.
