Technique for making a chain stitch

Before you start decorating the productTambour seam, it is necessary to fill the selected fabric in the embroidery frame. This is necessary in the first place to ensure that the seam is flat on the contour of the pattern and does not tighten the fabric.
There are two ways to embroider tambour stitches.
The first method
In the first case, we begin to embroider, moving onDirection from top to bottom. To do this, we first output the needle with the working thread on the front side at point 1 and make a loop. Then we bring the needle to the wrong side in the already existing puncture at number 2, which is located next to the first point and at the same time we must hold the loop with the finger.
Next, we need not dragging out the resultLoop again stick the needle to the surface at point number 3 and at the same time slightly tighten the thread to make the loop become smoother. Then, making the next loop, you will need to pierce the material directly near point # 3, so that the needle is on the front side inside the resulting loop.
By acting in this way, you will soon notice thatOn the wrong side you have a seam "stitch", and on the right side it consists of a loop. Pay special attention to the fact that if you embroider a pattern with a classical tambour seam, it means that all the loops you have should be identical.
The presented scheme, which will help you to master the technique of embroidery with a tambour stitch.
The second way This method of embroidering this seam is slightly different from the first. But it's also easy to perform, so you will definitely appreciate it.

First you will need to perform a small stitchFrom point No. 1 to point No. 2. After that you will need to pierce the fabric at point No. 3 and pull the needle and thread to the front side. Please note that the distance from point No. 2 should be the same as the size of the loop. Having done this, you will need to hold a needle under stitch 1-2 and stick the needle as close to point number 3 as possible.
Next, you need to bring the needle to the frontSide at point number 4 and after holding it at the bottom of the loop you made again, insert it into the material at point No. 4. Then you must again bring it to the front side at point No. 5.
These two ways perfectly harmonize with each other and allow you to embroider without breaking the thread. Also worth noting is the fact that in this seam it is allowed to change the size of the loops and their shape.

How to turn an ordinary chain stitch into a convex

The convex seam is a "composite" element and is performed in 2 stages. At the first stage, your embroidery will resemble a "ladder", and on the second step "steps" will appear on it.
This kind of seam is ideal for embroideryLupins and delphiniums. But they can not only do this. With a convex seam, you can also embroider rough wood trunks or beautiful unusual ornaments.
After studying our little lesson, you can independently embroider your products with a convex seam:

  • To begin with, sew a ladder consisting of small even stitches, and draw the thread on the front side. The photo clearly shows how to do it right.
  • Then you will need to pull the needle to the right, andAfter that, hold it under the upper "step". In this case, you must move exclusively in the direction from the bottom up. In the next photo you can see how to do it.
  • Once again, draw a needle under the same "step". The main thing at the same time is to ensure that the thread wrapped around the needle;
  • Next, you must tighten the thread so thatFormed the first crocheting stitch in this chain. On this the embroidery of the first "step" will be finished and, going to the next part of the "ladder", you can sew further.
  • If you will sew all the rows while moving inThe same side, then you will get a smooth seam. And if you need a texture, then you should alternate the rows: one to sew up, and the other vice versa - down.

    When your embroidery is finished, you will see the resulting convex pattern.

    Two-color and zig-zag tambour seam

    You have already noticed that sewing with a tambour seamQuite simply. But in order to slightly diversify and decorate our work, we can use not only the usual tambour seam, but also convex, zigzag and even two-color.

    If you want to start sewing a two-toneSeam, then you must first choose a well-matching color thread. Then you will need to put two different colored threads into the needle and proceed directly to work.
    The first stitch you perform only one threadColor at the same time you need to hold the other thread over the tip of the needle. After that, you pull both threads and thereby complete the first stitch. You will have to sew a second stitch with a thread of a different color. In this simple way, you can embroider a two-color chain stitch.

    In order to embroider a pattern with a zig-zag tambour seam, you need to identify two parallel lines on the selected tissue site. Starting work is best from the top of the left line.
    First you need to pierce the fabric with a needle, so that its tip comes out at a certain point located on the opposite line. Then you will have to pull out the thread and make a stitch stitch.
    After that, you can make the second stitch, which should also be inclined. But it is worth noting that it will need to be done in the opposite direction.
    By acting in this way, you will get a zigzag tambour stitch.
