Embroidery on clothes does not lose relevance onFor many centuries. No matter what kind of estate was a man, clothing with embroidery was sure to have everyone. And especially skilled craftsmen decorated the outfits of the rich estate with their own hands, remaining themselves in modest embroidery.
True, originally manual embroidery is not onlyDecorated clothes, she was given also a protective meaning, but over the years, the aesthetics of the perception of clothes with embroidery came to the fore. Embroidered clothes, regardless of whether there is a brand label on it or a logo or not, is always original. And it does not matter what technique your outfit is decorated with - a cross, a smooth, a stalk, a Richelieu ... - the main thing is how it is done.
The first steps in embroidery
Decide on the clothes. Work out your skills. For example, a cross on cotton T-shirts, pants, shirts ... They are convenient for the first work experience and not the most expensive.
Select the decoration area. If this shirt is the best place for a personal logo (so you can regard embroidery as a sign of your exclusive work):
Choose a picture. Drawing attention to the schemes, give priority to those where drawings with a repeating pattern are depicted. It is easier for them to follow, especially at the initial stage of work.
When we improve our skills, we can embroider cross designs and complex logos and patterns: on the chest, and on the sleeves and on the back of the product. As in these photos:
What to do next - step two
We erase what we decorate. So you will insure yourself against shrinkage of fabric and distortion of the pattern, and check whether the clothing is sewn with embroidery or not. Otherwise it will be very insulting if your manual work and the hopes associated with it are lost at the first wash.
Threads also check for color fastness: Wet them, wrap them in a white cloth and see if it has stained. If so, do not be in a hurry to get upset, and treat the threads by soaping them with soap and soap (wrapping them, for example, on clothespins) and immersing them in very hot water for 15 minutes. Rinse thoroughly in cold water, and hold in a solution of vinegar with salt for several minutes. Then rinse again with hands, wrap in a white cloth and iron. If there are again divorces - the thread is best boiled for about five minutes in acetic salt solution. After that, they will definitely not shed, but only please with their colors.
For the solution "antilinka":
- 1 cup of cold water;
- 1 tbsp. L. 9% vinegar;
- 1 tbsp. L. Salt.
When you have ironed your clothes, attach the picture, the canvas logo to the place of the logo, beforehand ironing it.
It is better if it is slightly more than the figure on the diagram.
To fix the canvas you need tightly, smoothing the wrinkles with hands, pins or a leaky seam. So she will not crawl.
That the embroidery on clothes was neat, aroundThere should be no noticeable punctures, so the needle should be with a small eye. And another tip: try, embroidering a cross in the squares, do not pierce the threads of the canvas, otherwise it will be difficult to remove. If you do everything correctly, the threads of the canvas can be easily removed by hand by alternately (!) Pulling out its horizontal and vertical rows.

The basics of embroidery

- Apply the drawing with a "chemical" pencil;
- You can draw a thin piece of dry soap, but not colored.
Choose any option, and do not forget to break the pattern into sections, so it will be easier to embroider and a simple logo, and a complex pattern.
