- ‘Create the large flower petals as if working lazy daisy stitch, but do not tack down the top of the loop; instead, bring the needle back up near the base of the ribbon loop and cover the base with French knots.’

- ‘Embroider one lazy daisy stitch with the buttonhole twist or embroidery thread on either side of each feather stitch.’
- ‘Students learned the satin, cross-stitch and lazy daisy stitch.’
