CAT | embroidery
Last week I made 4 bracelets so I had a dry bracelet to do the new embroidery stitch on .. So plenty of time to think of how to use the stitch. Stitch no 4 is the cretan stitch. Hope I understood it correctly ….
Here a two pictures of what I started with..
The result will be shown here on Tuesday
This last week I enjoyed myself with learning the Feather stitch explained onPintangle It is actually a combination of the 2 previous stitches. I first started on a little piece of embroidery raster from my daughter and after I knew what to do I gave it a try on a new made bracelet.
I really must admit this is so much fun and easy to do without getting wet, hihihi
I just found out in Dutch this stitch is called `taksteek `.
Enjoy your Tuesday!!
Take A Stitch Tuesday week 2 of 2012. This is a challenge where I wil learn an embroidery stitches every week of 2012.So the second stitch was called the Button hole stitch and announced on this blog: Pin Tangle
I Dutch I know this stitch as ` feston steek` and I already taught my daughter this stitch a year ago when she made this edge of her slippers,
Unfortunately one shoe is missing…..
She made a new piece of felt and asked me “Mummy I want to make a nice edge…, what do you think is nice to do? “ I said the new stitch of the TAST.. ” OH I cannot do so Mummy, must be too difficult…” Then I showed her the post and she said: Hej, I know that stitch!! I can do that too !! ” So she started working on the edge of her piece of felt immediately This is her :
The difficulty about stitching on felt is you don;t have any raster or weaving lines…. so making all stitches nice and even is not so simple…
Here is a detail of an edge she made. (I still need to hide the ends )
My own contributions to this weeks stitch was again a felted bracelet.. I really like making them and doing some embroidery on them So I decided to go for a bracelet every week… I hope to have nice collection at the end of this year.. imagine 52 bracelets with a different stitch per bracelet…… I already saw them displayed in my dreams
The inner circle isn’t stitches with the button hole stitch, but I just loved to use this stitch, I know as “whitches” stitch
What I love about embroidering onto felt is that I can hide all ends in the felt… as you can see on the picture not one stitch came through..
the bracelet turned inside out…
I finally made myself a pair of wrist warmers.. I used only 2 thin layers of wool and must admit they are soft and comfortable.. Some embroidery around the thumbs holes was done quite fast , still doubting is I also do the same with the other edges. What would you do?
Take A Stitch Tuesday week 1 of 2012. This is a challenge where I wil learn an embroidery stitches every week of 2012. I really hope I can keep up with this challenge, but as this is the only thing I want to do every week besides felting… I give it a go..
So the first stitch was called the Fly stitch and announced on this blog: Pin Tangle
I felt a little inconvenient, what to embroidery? Am I going to make samples or embroidery just what I have at hand? I don’t know jet , but decided for this week to embroidery a new felted bracelet I made.
I really love this thread.. I bought it at a local store whom delivers worldwide: van der Venne mixes it themselves, great quality just the shiny glittery thread sometimes breaks easily….. but that might say something about how hard I pull, hihihi
Today I’ll get to see a new stitch of which I can try to make and practice upcoming week…. cannot wait.
