color: red and red-brown to olive-green petals and stalk;

-webs (white!) 25cm x 25cm.

Particularly on fabrics. For the first time, we can take any open weave c / b, we can outline. This is for learning. A better start to embroider on crepe satin! Fabric ideal density, it is possible to embroider on the front side and on the underside, inexpensive (at wide 150-140sm costs around 110 rubles.!) Only 30 cm – and you are provided with a cloth for the entire course!

Before starting to embroider, to learn the circuit.
It presents 4 types of joints:
№1 seam “stitch with the curl”

№2 seam “stitch with the curl” (small).

№3 seam “knot.”

№4 seam “basting entwined.”

Long petals inflorescence will embroider “Stitch with curl,” a two-tier middle of a – “Stitch with curl (small)” and “knot”, and a flexible stalk – “basting entwined.”

On the cloth tucked into the hoop prepared in advance, transfer scheme. But not completely, but only scheduling

the center of the flower, the petals rays, and the stem line.

Let’s start with embroidered petals. Therefore, the needle Thread the tape darker tone.

HOW TO knot. On the front side of the reverse bend at the tip of the tape, 1.5 cm puncture needle and thread through the middle of the tape until the tip does not form a bow-knot.

! .Vtoroy cut the end of the tape at an angle so that when the work is not dissolved.

Seam (№1) «stitch with curls.”

Draw the needle with the tape onto the front side of the cloth at the starting point of one radiating circuits. Point the tape in the right direction.

After determining the size of petals (ray),  in the center of the tape. Punctures the tape and fabric drag needle inside out.

When taping on, you should have WordLikeThis curl (hence the name “Stitch with the curl”).

Stretch tape very carefully, until-until a  petal.

Re-print the needle from the root of the next beam. If the tape comes out the front of the straighten it with a needle. And embroidery in a circle, as long until you get here is a “semi-flowered.”

How to fix the tape on the inside. When the tape ended, or have to go to the other stitches, gently tighten the tape on the inside. To do this 1-2 times pull the ribbon through the near lying seams, thus, a good stick to them, so as not to spoil the embroidery. In some cases, it is preferable to fix the tape directly on the fabric with small stitches made with thread to match the tape. I found another way (for satin ribbon!) – the tip of a cigarette lighter and set fire to the tape when it, the reverse side of the lighter pressed down to the fabric. This method is used carefully, not to burn!

We continue! The same stitching embroiders second series of petals,  a ribbon of a different color, to shade lighter core. These seams will go to the second tier, the first between the petals.

Now we proceed to the middle of the flower embroidery and study

seam №2 «stitch (small)

the joint principle is the same as that of the previous one, only the stitch length decreases. And we do not tighten the belt and leave the bulk curl.

These seams and darker ribbon fill the middle of the flower.

Seam №3 – «knot».
Extend a needle with a lighter ribbon on the front side of the work.
With his left hand (for right-handers) Keep the tape, the right-hand needle.

A tape wound on a needle (1- 2vitka).

Hold the belt with your left hand and holding the turns of the tape right to stick a needle into the fabric, preferably closer to the place from whence it came.

Twisting the needle (left-right), the needle is pulled tape – “knot” is ready!

This seam fills the middle part of the flower.
You can leave and so. And you can add one more detail … Tapes lighter in tone, (who has 3 mm size), embroider “stitch from the middle to the third tier of petals, petals and piercing through the fabric.

Calyx Gerbera ready!

It remains to embroider stem, and therefore, to explore another seam.

Seam №4 – «basting entwined.”

Through stem scheme, olive green ribbon makes a few stitches “forward needle”. The stitch length must be equal to the width of the tape. Between should be no more than 2-3 mm.

When stitches will fill the entire line, print needle there and start to twist every stitch. Try to keep the tape is not curled, flatten it constantly, get smooth and beautiful. Congratulations, a start!
