Using cross stitch, you can createunique products and even works of art. Today we will discuss embroidery of the painting "The Middle Ages". It will be able to make it even for beginner needlewoman, because the master class contains a step-by-step description and a photo to the main stages of the picture embroidery. So, in order to create such a picture, we need: the white foundation of Hades; acrylic thread; needles number twenty-four and twenty-six; embroidery frame; sharp scissors; frame under the picture. Description of the process of embroidering a picture First of all,It is necessary to hold the edge of the canvas to prevent shedding of slices. You can also treat the edges with the glue "Moment" (2 cells from the edge). In this case, the glue will help maintain the strength of the edges. Next, we need to determine the height, width and center of the future picture. In this case, you can calculate by cells. The embroidery itself we will start from the bottom right corner,strictly guided by the scheme. First you need to fix the thread on the canvas. At the same time you need to fold the thread 2 times, thread it in a needle. Then it is necessary to pierce the base from the front side in such a way that the loop from the thread is on top, pull the needle to the side of the wrong side near the puncture site, pull it out of the thread loop. When you embroider a cross, watch closely forso that the stitches lie in the same direction. In practice, many varieties of cross-stitch are known, but the most popular is the one-sided simple full cross. It provides crosses on the front side, and on the wrong side - stitches horizontal or vertical position. All the crosses are created by two diagonal stitches that cross over, while the stitches along the bottom will be laid from the right side to the left (from the upper right corner of the square to the bottom left), but the upper ones - from the left to the right. Your embroidery will be neat only,that you will strictly observe these rules. When you make the transition from one row to the next, on the right edge from the wrong side, you should make a connecting stitch along the vertical, which will be 21 times longer than the height of the cross itself. First we need to embroider the right side of the picture, clearly defining its height. Creating the left side of the picture, it followsdetermine the width of the border. Thanks to acrylic threads, the product will be light-resistant, thermoplastic and durable. And in its external parameters, it is similar to wool. When your embroidered product is completed, weshould wash it in slightly warm water with soap. Then gently squeeze, put in a soft cloth and allow time to dry. To do this, you can lay the canvas on a flat surface of a highly absorbent material. But iron better on a soft surface. Embroidery should not be ironed, but processed with steam from the wrong side. The final stage will be the design of embroidery in the frame. To do this, it is enough to purchase a ready frame and insert your product there. And you can create a passepartout from multi-colored paper. That's all! The picture, which is embroidered with a cross, is ready!
