Find out about thread painting or free motion embroidery. To make 3D embroidered flowers using mirage Wonderfil thread, use a water soluble stabiliser in a hoop and have mirage in the needle and in bobbin in your embroidery machine. This is because you are going to see front and back of flowers when finished. Make sure enough threads are interconnecting so when you wash out the stabiliser the whole piece will hold together. Once washed out and the embroidered flowers dried, you can use them for applique, combine multiple flowers and hand stitch beads in the centre. Use these flowers in any of your textile art projects!
