French Embroidery

Embroidery stitch 'forward needle' girls are taught in elementary school. Then, most handmade master more complex techniques of embroidery – cross stitch and. In these ways our grandmothers still decorated tablecloths, napkins and gazetnitsy. But recently I had an interesting technique of embroidery tried, modern – with thin multi-colored ribbons. Flowers and leaves of satin ribbons look very elegant. In addition, this embroidery is easily done and takes very little time. It can be inserted into the frame, and can be patterned ribbons of paint in gay colors pillows, items from her wardrobe, for example, hat or bag.

Scheme for embroidery ribbons can be bought ready-made, take out a special book or magazine, but rather to create itself. Silk or satin ribbons to fall at different widths and colors. A needle should be wide eyed (which would be held in the tape) and a blunt end. Embroider should be on the canvas, fine cotton fabrics or knitwear. If you want your embroidery adorned in silk or velvet, take the needle with the sharp end. The background color of your pick – your flowers prefer to be on a green meadow or on the surface of the blue water? Be creative! Now I'll tell just about the technique of embroidering with ribbons.

Sometimes, forming the edge of the petals, they fasten with a thread of the same color. Middle of a flower do with French knots, throwing a ribbon around the needle several times. The stamens can also be done with a bead or twisted threads. To Rose turned out, it is necessary to use auxiliary thread sewing, matched to the color of the tape. By making this thread a few stitches from the middle of an imaginary flower to its edges, then tape is passed alternately up and down. So, we tightly wound around the tape stitch that thread was not visible. In general, having mastered these simple techniques, you can try to lay the tape on its own. It can stretch or prisborit to form loops to achieve volume. So that your creation is not bright faded as long as possible, it must from time to time to wash or clean with a soft brush. If this is a picture, then you can just put in a frame under glass in a place where it would not direct sunlight.
