Title: It Came From The Deep ... I Mean, The Hoop!! (Tentacle Stumpwork Embroidery)
Post by: jemimah on January 16, 2011 05:20:22 PM
I made this for the deelightful Deee in the Embroidery Hoopla Tiny Edition swap.

Stumpwork tentacle patterns are not common, so I designed this one from scratch. It was so much fun to put together. :D









The tentacle is stitched on red silk dupion using a little organza applique, rayon and cotton threads. Split stitch filling, spider web, and colonial knots, wired and padded. It's quite small, the hoop is only 3 inches (or 4? can't recall exactly). I think Dee really likes it, and I certainly enjoyed making it.

I'm plotting what to stitch in 3D next. Your comments are welcome. :)

That is absolutely amazing! I'm definitely hitting "this rocks" and spending a few hours trying to figure out how to steal some of your amazingness for myself. ;D I didn't know there was such a thing as 3D embroidery but now I know I have to try it someday.

Also, this made me think: how cool would it be to have a giraffe head coming out of an embroidered tree? *wink wink nudge nudge*


Title: Re: It Came From The Deep ... I Mean, The Hoop!! (Tentacle Stumpwork Embroidery)
Post by: jemimah on January 16, 2011 08:31:22 PM
Thank you everyone!! :)

It's more or less traditional stumpwork techniques. It's probably easier to show than describe, but roughly, I stitched the tentacle slip on red silk, couched some wire on the back, then cut out, formed, stitched and stuffed it into its 3D shape. Then the slip was applied to the base fabric, punching the wire through and stitching it in place firmly. Surface fabric applied over the top, with the ragged edges to look like the tentacle broke through it. Stumpwork is heaps of fun to do, although it can get a little fiddly!

Thank you so much everyone! :)

I'm not sure how easy it would be to do a tutorial, it's a bit fiddly in parts; I will have a think about it though. If you're a reasonably confident embroiderer, and you want to try stumpwork, the A-Z of Stumpwork has good instructions and pictures (this one (http://www.countrybumpkin.com.au/product_info.php?cPath=40&products_id=432817&osCsid=vlf68n3jo3df4fo0ijlkrvuqr6)). Once you've got the hang of the techniques, you can easily adapt them to your own designs.

Thanks kittykill! :)

RabidCupcake (and anyone else who wants to try stumpwork), it's a bit tricky, but do-able, especially once you've got some embroidery experience under your belt. Some of my top tips and suggestions are in the February interview (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=372731.0).

... and thank you everyone for all the compliments!
