3  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Nonsense or: What Was I Thinking? on: April 07, 2014 09:29:51 AM
I made a couple things for Knickertwist for the Complete Nonsense Swap.  One was this little nonsense house of embroidered felt:

The other thing was this Mervyn Peake quote.  This is not my design, except for adding the words which are printed on fabric, I simply stitched over some psychedelic fabric I'd been saving for years.  I did not know what I was getting myself into when I started this!  It felt like it would take me the rest of my life.  I even left some areas unstitched.  Roll Eyes  But ultimately I like how it turned out and may do more pieces in this manner, just a lot smaller, or if with words added - much larger words!   Cheesy

7  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / Tutorial: How to frame embroidery on a padded cardboard shape on: February 18, 2014 06:21:09 PM
Here is how I frame all my embroideries:

1.On the right side of the fabric, mark the finished size and framing with pins.

2.Cut a piece of cardboard the size of your frame.

3.Glue padding to the cardboard; here I use some polar fleece. Trim to just slightly larger than the frame.

4.After the glue dries, test fit the frame against the embroidery.

5.Trim the fabric around the outside of the pins, 1/2 - 3/4 of an inch.

6.Tie a knot in a long piece of strong thread (I use automotive upholstery thread) and make running stitches around the circumference about 1/4 inch or so from the edge.

7.Place the padded cardboard padding side down on the backside of the embroidery, using the pins to position it.

8.Pull the thread to tighten the fabric around the cardboard.

9.Stitch back and forth around the opening, pulling the thread tight.  Try to pull it evenly to remove buckles in the fabric on the front.  There may still be slight buckles, but these will be removed later. Tie off the thread.

10.Cut a piece of felt a little smaller than the shape. Pin it to the back.

11.With regular sewing thread, sew the felt onto the back, taking stitches as shown.  Pull them tight.  Sew all the way around twice, pulling evenly.  This will remove any remaining puckers in the front.

12. How it should look once finished.

 13.Heres the front, nice and smooth.
