My partner had a pin of a dandelion sewn on see-through netting and I wanted to try to figure out the stitches. I have no idea if I got it the same as the original picture, but I mostly like the method I used. Trying to make it look like a couple bits were blowing away without having anything show through from the back to the front is too tough for me. Mine look a little too attached still. Next time hopefully I can get that a little more natural looking. I think I need to go with a larger embroidery, or a thinner silk thread. this is done with a single thickness of dmc floss.

It is truly beautiful. Even after you described what you think is missing, it looks just right.

Did you paint or otherwise color the inner ring of the hoop? Looks great!

Thank you!

This will be a horrible explanation - I just don't have the vocabulary, but no paint. I came up for my white stitches for the stem of each piece of fluff about 1/2" from the center circle, then made sure to keep the return stitch lined up on the back. Then the dark brown stitches for the seed casing are sort of a weird reverse lazy daisy stitch - they start in the center, then loop through the white stitch where it came up from the back, then back to the center. I added slightly off white french knots to be the center of the flower where bits of fluff have blown away (and to cover the mess of stitches that would show through from the back)

So it is just the sheer, pink fabric that makes the inner ring of your hoop look pink? Amazing!

You are a crafty genius. I tried this & totally bombed, what a mess. Yours looks perfect.
