The art of bulk embroidery
For beginners you definitely need:
1. Needle (the thinner the needle the better, I use a very fine needle for beads), scissors.
2. DMC threads and any fabric ranging from cotton to silk or satin fabrics
3. Wire (thin copper wire from a telephone cable)
3. Pencil and pattern drawing
The difficulty lies only in the ability to embroider satin stitch. Even the simplest skills in this technique would be very useful to you.
We take the wire and bend it in the shape of a flower petal. If
you have a different template, for example, you need to make a butterfly wing or others.
bend the wire in the form of a wing, etc.
2. Secure the wire to
tissue. First, we fasten the thread (single thread) of the desired
Us colors, I usually pick a thread of the main color of the design. If you
you will make a daisy petal, then we take to fix the white thread, i.e.
the color of the thread of the main background, no matter what blotches you still have on
3. Sew our wire-template to the material. rice1.
The material can be anything from silk to cotton fabrics. The more materials you have, the better.
4. Next are satin stitches, you can use the same thread as when fastening the template fig. 2
5. Then our wire is covered with a stitched seam.
As a result, we get the finished part!
6. Next, we cut out the finished parts and start to collect the flower, as a result we get the following
Based on the tips of the inventor of the technique of volumetric embroidery, Helen Pierce, the Country of the Soviets will tell youhow to embroider pansies. Volumetric embroidery in the form of pansies will be a great decoration of the basket for needlework, jewelry boxes for the necessary trifles or purses.
Pansies come in many different colors. Therefore, to create them we needwool yarn of different colorsyellow, blue and purple flowers. The number of skeins of each color depends on the number of shades. You can combine colors in different ways. The rear petals (2 pieces) are embroidered with dark purple or black threads.
For the leaves, we need 4 skeins of green and 2 skeins of light green wool. In addition, you need to take a pale greenthin silk threadand white, yellow, black and green threadsfloss. Also useful is a thin green wire, the main fabric and the fabric of medium density for the elements of the flower.
Let's start with the petals. We translate the pattern of the petal (1) on the fabric and insert it into the embroidery frame. We sew the contour of the flower with stitches and fill the petal inside the contour with a smooth surface. We sew one row with one color, the second with another, etc. At the base of the three front petals, a black thread floss is poured by diverging fan strokes that fill 3/4 of the petals.
We take out the fabric from the embroidery frame and carefully cut out the petal as close as possible to the stitches. After making 5 petals, insert the fabric into the hoop andattach petals to itstitch "needle". First, 2 rear, putting their bases on each other, then 2 front (opposite each other) and the remaining petal. We put it on the front side of the other petals, grab a pair of stitches in the center and bend it. The arrangement of petals is shown in fig. 2. Fill the center of the flower with white, yellow and green nodules.
Forbudsmake two petals. Patternsepal(3) transfer it to the fabric and insert it into the hoop.We sheathe the contour with dark green thread with looped stitches, and inside the contour we fill the sepal with a satin stitch. When the sepal is almost ready, turn it over and we sew the upper cut with looped stitches - they should be located in the direction of the smooth surface. Carefully cut the sepal.
Now you can proceedbud assembly. Cut off a piece of wire and bend one end of it with a loop. We fix a loop from the underside of the petal, which we did for the bud. We turn the petal as follows: the wrong side looks out, the edges overlap each other, the wire is closed. We catch the petal together with the wire with small stitches at the base. Wrap the sepal around the base of the bud and sew it with several stitches of light green wool thread, grabbing the bud.
With two dark green threads we wind the wire at the base of the sepal about 8 cm. Bend the end of the wire, thus securing the thread. The remaining thread we will attach the buds to the main fabric.
To makeleaves, transfer the pattern of the sheet (4) to the fabric and insert it into the hoop. Light green thread we sheathe loop loop stitches,and fill the area inside the contour with satin stitch (the direction of the stitches is from the edges to the central vein). Pale green silk thread embroider veins. For the central veining we use stalked seam, for lateral - smooth surface. Carefully cut the leaves.
When all the elements are ready, we startassembly of flowers. Attach leaves to each flower. They can be placed on one side or on the opposite, half-hidden under the flowers. To attach each flower, we sew stitches on the fabric remaining on the flowers. The flowers are arranged side by side so that the leaves of some violets cover the flowers. We place the buds on the wire stalks under the flowers, securing them with stitches “for the needle” on the main fabric.
Volumetric embroidery "Violets" is ready!
About the skill of Indian embroiderers known worldwide. Embroidery is an ancient primordial Indian craft that is exclusively for men.
This is the work of an Indian embroidery master from Agra Shamsuddin (Shamsuddin).
The size of the painting is approximately 2.52 mx 1.90 m. The artist embroidered 18 years for the “Good Shepherd”, the technique is also rather unusual, see for yourself enlarged fragments of paintings
Another no less amazing work of Shamsuddin is “A Bouquet of Flowers” (about 2.30 mx 1.68 m in size).
The bouquet is embroidered with artistic smoothness. Each flower was first embroidered separately and then skillfully assembled into a bouquet, taking into account the color of the flower and its texture. After assembly, the bouquet was embroidered entirely, with careful study of details.
Shamsuddin spent 1000 hours creating this magnificent work, and he did it for 11 years.
The vase is decorated with precious and semi-precious stones with a total weight of 20,000 carats.
The works of Shamsuddin are examples of the highest embroidery skill, for which the embroiderer was repeatedly awarded. Unfortunately, Shamsuddin is no more, but his son and his disciples continue the work of the master.
Currently, the master's works are exhibited in the private gallery of the jewelry store Kohinoor in Agra.
