Beauty without extra effort: video lessons embroidery satin ribbons
Preparation and creation of the basis
Materials for work
The basis for embroidery is linen white or slightly bluish fabric, the size of which depends on your plans. As a rule, the work is carried out on a canvas measuring 20 * 20 cm, although it is possible to use large pieces of fabric. It is undesirable to use a smaller size - embroidery with ribbons will look too bulky on it.
Also, the preparation scheme includes the purchase of fabrics - the ideal option are products with a transition of fabric from dark red to bright scarlet color with a width of 25 mm.
Work begins with the embroidery of the first petals that poppies will have. The whole process can be seen in detail in the video, in which Tatiana Ulanova’s master class “Tutelka in the Trick” is presented, however, a detailed analysis of all actions will not be superfluous.
- To begin with, we thread the tape into a needle and make three straight stitches on the canvas, which will be 1-3 mm apart. At the same time, the fabric should be collected in such a way that from the outside it will come out a little assembled, with a number of folds. This method is used exclusively for embroidery large flowers - poppies, peonies, roses. If you want your picture to be decorated with daisies, the petals must be carefully straightened.
- Bringing out the ribbon after the third stitch, make a small loop in the direction of the finished leaves and go to the inner surface. You should have an air loop with which your embroidery will be fastened with ribbons.
- Next, you just need to mirror this stitch, and create a fifth petal that will complete the base of the flower. However, if you watch the video, which depicts a master class of embroidery “Tutlka in the thread”, you can see that many recommend adding two more loops, and, accordingly - two petals,which will give the image the maximum amount.
- Repeat this procedure as many times as you plan to put poppies on the canvas. Be careful and do not place the flowers too close to each other - they will look unnatural. In addition, please note that there may be other decorative elements between them - chamomile, spikelets, cornflowers and others.
- Next, you need to arrange the middle of the flower. To do this, take a piece of artificial fluff and wrap it with a wide green cloth. Fasten the resulting structure with black floss thread, dividing it into five equal parts, and pull the ends of the threads up, and straighten them a little.
- Sew the center in large colors, and smooth out the resulting black “stamens”.
- After that, their tips can be slightly tinted with white watercolor or toothpaste. Poppies are ready, you only need to create stems and additional decorations - stems, ears, chamomile and other small flowers, which are devoted to a separate master class.
Such an operation can be difficult for beginners, but in general, embroidery with ribbons does not take much power.
If you want your embroidery ribbons to look like a real picture, you need to add poppies with appropriate decorative elements.
If you want to give them the greatest volume, you need to roll the middle green strip into a tube and carry out embroidery in this way. It can be additionally attached with thin green threads to avoid image blooming.
Unopened buds can be arranged in the same way as the core, which is already embroidered poppies. In addition, the same method is used to make middle parts, which are set in other flowers - chamomile, cornflowers, and others, but it is necessary to use tapes of a different color.
After reviewing the video, which depicts Tatiana Ulanova's master class “Tutelka in the Thread”, you can also see that the composition sometimes adds spikelets and grass blades, which are embroidered with silk threads and thin satin ribbons.
Daisies are embroidered like poppies, howeveras mentioned above, neat straight petals are used, which must be carefully straightened, and the core is the yellow ribbon, which is better to be divided into 5-8 pieces of white thread.
In addition, the embroidery that the master class depicts may also include other colors. Blue poppies, green daisies, and other non-standard solutions look good as decorations, which can be suggested by an interesting workshop on ribbon embroidery.
