I found Buttonhole Eyelet Flower in A-Z of Embroidery Stitches 2 . It is called Buttonhole Eyelet flower and has a base created by first working a buttonhole wheel, then you add bullion knots around the wheel.
Although at first glance it looks quite restrictive you can do quite a bit with it. Buttonhole wheels can also be worked in halves and quarters in various arrangements. So half and quarter flowers can be worked. You can work the wheel as an oval disk or even heart shapes! It is also easy to add more rings of ‘petals’ in bullion knots.
This is what the finished stitch looks like.
How to work a Buttonhole Eyelet flower.
Work a buttonhole wheel, making sure that you pass each vertical stitch through the same point in the centre.
Bring the thread out on the edge of the circle, insert the needle into the middle of the wheel and loop the thread under the needle point. Pull the needle through the fabric to form a loop and repeat this process around the circle.
If the edge of your wheel edge flips up it is probably because you are not spacing the stitches close enough together.
The next step is to work bullion knots around the edge of the wheel. Bring your thread out at the first spot.
Insert the needle in the second spot. Point the needle backwards (anti-clockwise) so that the point emerges near the place that the thread comes out of the fabric
Wrap the thread round the needle 10-15 times and then pull the needle carefully through the coil.The more wraps the larger the loop that is formed.
While pulling the needle through the coil, put your left thumb over the coil to hold the coil down. Pull the working thread through the coil until it starts to tighten and then stroke the under belly of the coil with your needle. This will smooth the coil and neaten the stitch.
Take the needle through the fabric at the point where it came out.
These are particularly fun if you combine them with a Closed Base Needlewoven Picot stitch
I hope you enjoy the stitch!
