Craft Embroidery

Embroidered chrysanthemum on a knitted cloth

The embroidery can be decorated with any, even the simplest thing. But classical embroidery, performed by all the canons of the special thread – floss or silk, requires painstaking work and time-consuming.

A simple, but bright and spectacular embroidery on knitted things easy to do with yarn.

In the course can go:

remnants of multicolored balls;

yarn a texture, such as mohair;

The same yarn is used for knitting patterns.

Bright, multicolored motifs are perfect for children’s clothes and homeware. Embroidery “tone on tone” or another yarn texture looks elegant on any sweaters, jumpers, dresses and sleeveless. A place for placing embroideries chosen in advance. The thing you need to put on and decide where decoration will look the most advantageous. If guided by expanding the model in front of him, the embroidery, fine gazing on the plane, the figure may be ugly, “go” somewhere armpit.

The background for the pattern is successfully facing surface, boucle or gum 1×1. All you need to work – this is a great thread and “Gypsy” needle with a good eye.

Description of the implementation of the master class:

For clarity, we take the knitted fabric of the same color, and the thread – other:

thread length – about 1.5 meters.

Fix the thread, but not a bundle as when sewing. The end of the filament, about 2 centimeters, leaving from the wrong side, and fix the thread on the canvas one small stitch.

Now we make a large stitch ago:

Under the fabric, it is desirable to enclose something hard and smooth, for example, a book or a folder. This will help to monitor the tension of the thread. Embroidery, in any case, can not drag. The yarn must lie freely and do not pull the fabric.

The front of the needle entwines thread. The coils need smooth, but quite free, as we have to stretch them through a needle and thread:

Gently take hold of the turns, pulling the tip of the needle and pull the thread for it as long as the web does not form a small loop:

Threads again anchoring and outlines where to put another curl. In the decorative stitch embroidery called “Rococo” or “twisted”. Using only the Rococo, it is possible to embroider a rose, but now we have a slightly different task – to create the nitty gritty of the flower:

Petals embroidered chain stitch to attach. For those who do not remember or do not know how it looks, I remind you. Here is the chain stitch:

But it tambour to attach, it is exactly what we need:

Make the first petal:

We fix it to attach, and thread returns to the nitty gritty:

The longer attached, the greater will be the flower looks like a chrysanthemum:

It remains to give a number of petals, “filling in” their midway:

On the reverse side, we pick up the thread ends, connect them with each other or secured in any convenient way. Optionally the composition may be supplemented leaves, nodules, or small flowers.
