Introduction: Layered Tulle Embroidery

Embroidering tulle is both easier and more challenging than traditional embroidery. Some aspects of the tulle make is quicker and allow for some interesting stitching that couldn't be achieved otherwise, but the tulle only has so many places you can insert your needle and it's pretty fragile. The coolest thing about using tulle is the transparency. By stacking layers on top of each other, you can create a 3-dimensional image. In the following steps, I'll walk you through some of the tips, tricks, and stitches I used to create this aerial scene, but don't feel limited to this image. This medium is only limited by your creativity.

Supplies

tulle

每一层或一个刺绣箍和激光切割器的刺绣箍

绣花线和针头

剪刀

快速干性胶水

活页夹夹

一张纸

paintbrush

Step 1: Load Your Hoop

将一块薄纱装进您的箍。请注意不要太用力,否则您可以撕裂织物。通常,将薄纱放在内圈上,然后将外圈压在其上,将使其足够紧。

步骤2:计划

To get a basic outline of an aerial view of fields, trace or draw an image onto paper. Then, cut it out and place it inside your hoop. I've seen people trace designs onto tulle with a sharpie, but it's very difficult to see because there is so little material to mark on. I opted to keep this paper handy for a guide.

将向导拿在薄纱下面,使用跑步针迹概述每个部分。在您的设计中,在我排成一排大树和道路之后,我不再使用该指南了。在那之后,我可以翼。

步骤3:法国结

French knotsare great for trees in this aerial design. I used them in big clumps, rows, and in scattered sections. This stitch was very versatile. Normally, with a french knot, after wrapping the thread around the needle, you would want to go down through the same place you came up in the fabric. However, with the tulle's large openings, you either need to make larger knots by wrapping it around the needle a couple more times or go through the neighboring hole in the tulle.

步骤4:运行针迹

With traditional fabric embroidery, a running stitch creates a dotted line. However with tulle, it creates a solid line. This makes filling in sections much faster than traditional embroidery. When planning to use running stitches, look at the actual holes in the tulle. The fabric has a straight direction and a diagonal direction. When filling sections, it's easiest to follow the holes in the tulle in the straight direction.

Step 5: Switching Directions

When changing directions with a running stitch on tulle, you get a rounded edge. In most cases it didn't matter much as I was filling the sections in, however it did come in handy. When combining two colors in a field and changing directions in various areas it gave that section a more wild look as opposed to the perfectly tamed rows of a planted field. It also worked great for the clouds in the upper layers.

Step 6: Mixed Stitches

在本节中,我结合了法国结和缝线。我绝对应该从跑步针迹开始以填充绿色部分,然后添加法国结树。事后看来是20/20。

步骤7:松散线程

With tulle, you have to consider the loose threads on the back. On the layer with all the fields, there were no transparent areas left, so I could ignore the thread endings. However, with the top two layers, I couldn't leave them dangling. Using quick dry tacky glue and a paintbrush, I trimmed the endings short and glued them under areas of solid embroidery. Notice the difference between the bottom bird and the top bird in the image.

Step 8: Layers

在这里你可以看到我创建三个层次. The next couple steps illustrate how I framed them. It would have been easier to mount each layer in its own embroidery hoop, stack them, and glue them together, but I didn't have extra hoops lying around, so I opted to cut myself some frames on my laser cutter.

步骤9:用激光构架

如果您走这条路线,则每层需要两个圆圈,并且可能会给它们带来更高的高度。我切了1/4个圆圈,以减少浪费,但在不显示的地方。

Sandwich each tulle layer between two of the circles with a bit of quick dry tacky glue and use binder clips to hold them tight while it dries.

Step 10: Clean Up Edges

修剪额外的薄纱,并用更轻的剩下的少量融化。如果边缘仍然粗糙,将边缘稍微打磨。

Step 11: Enjoy

Glue the spacers in between the layers and enjoy.

    This technique is lovely. I had to read the whole tutorial because I was intrigued, and by the time I got to the end I understood the reason for that layering. There is an illusion of height which is wonderful, like looking through the porthole of an old plane :). Thank you for sharing :)

    awesome stiching!
    Have you tried using antimosquito tull in black? I think the first layer of stiching might show a little better and make the underlying colors pop more?
