The first step is to select the pattern.
Generally, the effect of embroidering Le embroidery is plush, and the junction of different colors in the pattern is not very neat, so it is not easy to embroider more delicate patterns, try to choose patterns with thicker lines, or enlarge small patterns. The embroidering effect will be very good. For beginners, you should pay special attention when you are not familiar with the needle method. After the needle is fully cooked, embroider some more delicate ones.
In the second step, select the needle size and thread.
After the pattern is selected, the needle type and the type of thread are selected according to the size of the pattern and the thickness of the pattern lines. For small pictures, generally choose to use thinner needles (No. 9 and 12) to embroider, most of the larger pictures choose thicker needles (No. 16). Thinner needles can embroider thinner lines, but the speed is relatively slow: Conversely, thicker needles embroider lines that are thicker, but relatively fast. Some people are anxious, so they can choose to embroider with thick needles in large areas of the same color, and embroider with thin needles where the color changes. I prefer to embroider the 12-gauge needle myself.(idiypaint.com)
Different needles use different embroidery threads, 9-gauge needle (2 sewing threads or 1 cross-stitch thread), 12-gauge needle (3 sewing threads or 2 cross-stitch threads, 1 cashmere thread) , 16-gauge needle (3 strands of cross-stitch, 2 strands of cashmere).
Different threads embroider different effects, which effect the embroiderer needs to choose.
The third step is to choose the embroidered cloth
Select the color of the embroidered cloth according to the background color required by the pattern. According to the texture of the embroidered fabric selected by the needle and thread, the thicker the needle,(idiypaint.com) the thicker the fabric. Thick needles will embroider a hole with a thin cloth. Depending on the use of the embroidered pattern, the choice is not different. I personally recommend a linen cloth, which is thick and stiff, and the embroidered pattern is suitable for mounting.
The fourth step is to transfer the pattern to the embroidered cloth
For the embroiderer who can draw directly, use the water-soluble pen to draw the pattern on the reverse side of the embroidered cloth. I do not have this ability, I believe most embroiderers do not have this ability. In order to grasp the drawing by yourself, you can also create the pattern on the paper first, and directly print on the paper to see the pattern online. Then we transferred the pattern drawn on the paper to the embroidered cloth. To transfer the pattern to the embroidered cloth, pencil and carbon paper are required. We put the pattern on the top, embroidered cloth in the middle, carbon paper on the bottom, and use a pencil to draw a little hard, so that the pattern drawn with the pencil will be printed on the back of the embroidered cloth. The pattern on the back of the embroidered fabric is reverse. We embroider according to the reverse pattern, and the positive pattern is presented on the front of the embroidered fabric.
The fifth step, poking the choice of Le embroidery stretch
This kind of embroidery method must use embroidery stretch. Only when the embroidery cloth is stretched tightly, can the embroidery needle be embroidered well. The embroidering stretch used by Pang Gole should not be too large. If it is too large, the embroidering cloth will not stretch tightly.(idiypaint.com) Even if the stretch is stretched tightly, the swing width of the embroidery needle will be very large when pulled down. So some people like to use small embroidered stretches, tightly stretched, big embroidered objects can also be embroidered in small pieces. But too small embroidered stretch is not good, because the needle of the needle is relatively long, and it is embroidered skillfully, the speed of the embroidery needle is faster, the area of the small embroidered stretch is relatively small, plus the place where you hold it, no Be careful and you may hurt your hands. Moreover, the adjustment area of the small embroidery frame is not large, and the place where the embroidery is embroidered will be particularly thick. When the embroidery is divided into pieces, sometimes the embroidery frame will be clamped to the already embroidered place, and it is difficult for the small embroidery frame to jam the embroidery cloth. I personally think that choosing an adjustable embroidery stretch of 15cm to 20cm is more suitable. For those who embroider infrequently and have large embroidery, the 15cm tight non-adjustable embroidery stretch is also acceptable.
Step 6 Embroider with different threads according to the pattern on the embroidered cloth
I personally generally say that there is a border line first to embroider the border line, multiple colors, first embroider the color with a smaller area, and embroider the same color first at the junction, from the outer circle to the inner circle.
The seventh step is to trim the embroidered pattern on the embroidered cloth
Some people like the effect of pruning, some people do not like it, depending on personal preference. After cutting, the pattern is relatively smooth and the color is relatively bright, but the pruning process is more troublesome and is also a great effort. (idiypaint.com)Before trimming, in order to prevent the cut hair from sticking to the embroidered cloth without embroidery thread, we use paper or other things to cover the embroidered cloth. Then cut it piece by piece with scissors. Try to cut it flat as far as possible. You can cut it repeatedly in uneven places to achieve the effect you need.
The eighth step, cleaning the embroidered cloth
If the embroidered cloth is uneven or stained, you can clean it with clean water and spread it evenly. Use an iron to smooth the uneven areas.(idiypaint.com) If the embroidered area is relatively small and relatively flat, and the surface of the embroidered fabric is kept clean, then there is no need to clean it, because the effect of the thread will change slightly after cleaning, and it will become flat after the trimming. .
The ninth step, the final repair work
Maybe after you trim and wash, you will find that the thread embroidered in some places is not very dense, or maybe we embroider it relatively thinly. Such an effect is sometimes we can’t be satisfied, don’t worry, we still have a In the repairing process,(idiypaint.com) we use embroidery thread to sew a few more stitches in a sparse place, and then trim it well, so repeat until you are satisfied with the effect.
The final step, packaging frame
In this step, you can go to a professional shop to make a frame. If you are embroidering something that is not very big and you like to do manual packaging,
