Volume embroidery with plastic canvas
First of all, I would like to note thatPlastic canvas is of different colors and therefore before you begin to work you must decide on the basic color of your product. After all, it will depend on what color
Also, the plastic canvas is different in size andForm of cells. Therefore, if you plan to embroider a large product, you will need sheets with large square cells, and if small, then the cells should be small and round. The overwhelming majority of specialists recommend that beginners do embroidery on a plastic canvas with an average size of cells, since this greatly simplifies the whole process.
Having dealt with what this miracle is, we can start a master class to create a voluminous house:
Plastic canvas is usually sold in sheetsFormat A4, so first you will need to cut out the details for the future house. First, cut out its base, as well as the back and front walls;

Now we can proceed directly toThe very embroidery. To do this we need a string of brown and pink. Brown will become the main color, and in pink we will sew a small door. You can easily embroider such an uncomplicated figure.
Embroidering the walls, we can embark on the embroidery on the plastic canvas of our future house. They must be made absolutely identical;
The next stage will be embroidery of small windows,Which we will then glue to the three sides of our future house. Thanks to such a small trick our house will seem more voluminous. It is worth noting that it is much more convenient to first embroider small windows on the canvas, and then glue them to the walls. Although many on the contrary prefer to embroider these small details after they have already been glued;
Then you will need to embroider two details on the canvas, from which the roof of our house will later be included. They are embroidered with threads of three colors: brown, green and pink;
Having finished with the embroidery of all the details, we canProceed to connect them. To do this, we need to pick up a fairly thick thread, and sew it all the details so that there are no gaps between them. In this case, work is best starting from the foundation, and then moving to the walls;
The end of the thread, by which we sewed the details, will need to be fixed "inside the house";
The next step will be the installation of the roof. First, we sew together two of its parts, and then process it with a string of edges. Having done this, we will have to glue the roof to the walls.
On this our main work can be consideredFinished. We can only further decorate the house with the help of pebbles, rhinestones or beads. For this we also need glue and a little imagination.
If your house is small, thenYou can quite make a small loop around the center of its roof, and then use it as an original Christmas tree decoration. Such a toy on the Christmas tree will look amazing, and your guests will certainly appreciate your talent.
