Like all mini flowers in this series so far, the mini puffy flower is quite easy to recreate. Achieve this look with just a couple of straight stitches. This works great for clusters of very small flowers like forget-me-nots, hydrangeas, Queen Anne’s Lace, and many more!

Stitching the petals

Decide how many petals your flower will have. I went for four petals in this tutorial but a very common amount of petals for flowers is five. Choose it depending on which type of flower you are recreating.

First, make one stitch from outside the center point to the center point. I like to embroider this way around to avoid any threads piling up in the back at the center. This could make it more difficult to stitch through the center multiple times.

Now, stitch over this first stitch multiple times. In this tutorial, I embroider a total of 3 times in the same position. Further below you can see a comparison between stitching 1, 2, 3, and 4 stitches on top of each other.

Make sure to meet the exact same entry and exit points every time.

Then go to the next petal and repeat.

How many layers to make?

Here is a comparison between 1, 2, 3, and 4 layers of stitches on top of each other. You can go even thicker than that for a maximum puffy flower effect.

I personally liked the version with 3 stitches the most (working with 3 strands of embroidery threads here). Keep in mind that this also depends on the thickness of your embroidery thread. You’ll have to make a lot more layers with only 1 strand of thread to get the same effect as shown in the picture.
