Cross-stitch embroidery for many centurieswas a means of decorating various items of the wardrobe. It touched both clothes for holidays and for wearing in everyday life. In 2016, the fashion for embroidering embroidery cross elements of the wardrobe is returned. And here there is nothing surprising, because the clothes of such a plan looks restrained, but at the same time bright and nontrivial. Naturally, the correctly chosen motif of embroidery can emphasize your individual style and a special approach to clothing. That is why we will devote this master class to cross-stitching on clothes. You have to start by choosing a thing,which I would like to decorate or update. It does not matter what it will be: a new shade or worn jeans, the main thing is that this element of the wardrobe is combined with embroidery. We advise for this case to take a denim or cotton shirt or trousers, because the cost is relatively low and in work they are very convenient. Having decided on the clothes, you should decide on where you want to perform the embroidery. In case this is a shirt, it is appropriate to arrange the pattern on the back, pockets or collar. If it's trousers, then a good option will be the pockets or the waist-to-calf area. In principle, there are a lot of options and you will have plenty to choose from. The main thing here is to focus on the individual style. After you decided on what clothes and where to embroider, you will need to decide what to embroider. There are also enough design schemes, so we recommend starting with simple ones, where the ornament repeats. Those who consider themselves more skilled needlewomen can take up a more complex pattern. In any case, it's worth starting something, and then there will be a skill. We have chosen everything, and, it would seem, we can immediately begin to work. However, you need to do some more preparatory actions, or rather - to wash clothes. If you do not carry out this procedure with her, the clothes can later "sit down" and distort the embroidery. At the same time you will experience the quality of the coloring of the fabric material. Some not too skilled masters do notdecide to perform on the items of their wardrobe embroidery because of the fact that the cloth lacks clearly expressed squares. The solution to this problem is to use a waybill. It is a rigid starched material with thickened threads. The canvas is placed on the clothes in the place where it is necessary to perform the embroidery, form a pattern on top of the canvas, after which it must be removed. Accordingly, it is necessary to determine the size of the canvas. After you cut it, iron it to avoid distortions. When embroidering large plots, it is recommended to use solid canvas cuts. Determine the ear of the area on the clothes, wherethe embroidery and the truss of the scheme will be arranged, which are combined with each other, after which the canvas is applied to the material. This is done in two ways: 1) we combine both centers and start sewing from a given place; 2) the clothing designates a horizontal or vertical axis, similarly performed on the canvas, after which the axes are combined. Stitching should be done fairly tightly and clearly, in order to avoid slippage and the formation of "wrinkled" areas. Simultaneously with sewing, you can break the canvas into 10x10 crosses. Of all the needles, it is advisable to choose a thin, sharp and with a tiny eye, so that it does not leave traces of piercings on the material. Do not forget to protect your own fingers with thimble. Particular attention should be given to the quality of threads. It will determine the longevity of preserving the aesthetic appearance after a large number of washings. Threads should have the same thickness, strength, resistance to permanent washing. In case of acquiring threads of doubtful quality, one should test their dyes for resistance. For this purpose, we wash them in warm water, and with effort we pass through white cloth. High-quality threads will not leave traces. In the main "molting" red threads are exposed. The formation of stitches is carried out over the plexuscanvas. You should be careful when embroidering, so that the needle thread can not be pierced by the needle, otherwise difficulties will arise with their removal. It is desirable to embroider new crosses as tightly as possible to the old ones, tightening the thread more tightly. With this option, the rows will be smoother, and the crosses will not be "loose". No less attention should be paid to the wrong side. Its implementation requires the same accuracy. And the point here is not in aesthetic meaning, but in practical: excessive knots and the presence of long broaches can contribute to their outflow in the ironing process, as well as deformation of the pattern. Do not forget about the technique of embroidery: crosses should be performed in the same order. At the final stage, the canvas is removed. This is done after the final execution of the pattern, including the fringing sutures. Extraction of threads of the canvas is preferable to produce alternately horizontally and vertically in different places of the product. So you avoid the warp of the pattern. In the case where the overhead canvas unnecessarily starched, you can slightly wet it with water. Let's say a few words about caring for the finished product. If the element of the wardrobe on which you made the embroidery, you were washing in the typewriter, you can continue to do so. However, if there is a fear of spoiling the embroidery, there are several ways to avoid it. For example, you can wash the product manually with a product that is delicate to the color and without bleach. The use of dry-type dry cleaners is highly undesirable due to the aggressiveness of chemicals that are capable of spoiling the pattern. Here's a fashionable thing turned out for us in the end:
