The exhibition in the kindergarten requiredan odd job on an Orthodox theme. We decided to depict the temple in the isonite technique. Izonit - the technique of creating drawings with the help of threads, with which each element of the picture is drawn in a special way. This interesting technique attracts simplicity of execution and originality of finished works. Children can also do this kind of needlework. If a child takes part in the work on embroidery, it is necessary to teach him the rules of safety when working with a needle. And of course, all child manipulation with a needle should be carried out under the supervision of an adult. The following materials will be required:
- a cardboard of black color (or velvet paper),
- simple pencil,
- threads of a mulina (white, yellow, green and blue flowers),
- threads metallized (gold),
- sewing needle,
- safety pin,
- soft elastic mat (we will use it as a substrate when piercing holes),
- frame with glass.
Black cardboard was taken as a background. You can take velvet paper as a basis. The work done on it looks chic, but the velvet paper is thin enough, it breaks easily when the thread is pulled, so it is better to combine it with cardboard. Threads are better to take a floss, they are smoother than normal sewing. It is possible to use threads of iris. But woolen threads do not fit at all. We also used metalized threads for embroidering individual parts, in particular domes. They give the work some kind of elegance. On the cardboard on the wrong side, with a simple pencil, apply the selected pattern. The whole drawing consists of the elements: domes, walls, windows, etc. On a contour of drawing of each element punctures are pierced. They are conveniently pierced with an English pin, its round tip will protect your fingers from damage. In order not to spoil the furniture, when piercing the holes, we put a soft elastic mat under the cardboard. If there is not a suitable rug available, you can use corrugated cardboard, linoleum remnants or simply folded newspapers. Then, using a thread with a needle, moving from one punctured hole to another, we fill out our sketch elementwise, as it were, drawn. Each element of the picture represents some shape or part of it: a circle, an arc, an angle, etc. And for each figure uses their own methods of filling it. Since most of the work was done by a preschooler, we used only the simplest techniques of isonite technology. Accepting the filling angle. Each side of the corner is divided into an equal number of identical segments, piercing with an English pin holes at the ends of these segments. For beginners, you can number points: one side of the corner - from the top, the other - vice versa. The top remains without a number. We thread the thread in the needle, at the end we tie a knot. We move from a digit on one side to the same figure on the other side of the corner along the punctured holes. Then on the wrong side, go to the next digit. On the front side is a beautiful weave, and on the purl - even stitches along the contour. Fill the whole angle according to the scheme. Based on this reception, we fill the domes. For domes we use metallic threads of gold color. Mentally we draw an axis from the top of the dome to the middle of its base. On both sides of the axis, we mark the same number of points at equal distances from each other. Fill the figure, according to the scheme. Arc filling pattern. Window openings are embroidered in two ways: at large windows all the filaments converge in the center of the window, at small windows - in the middle of the bottom part of the window. The remaining parts are embroidered with straight stitches, inclined or cross stitches. Ready work is inserted into the frame under the glass. The technique of isolating, like any embroidery, developsshaped and spatial thinking, as well as fine motor skills of the fingers, but requires perseverance and accuracy. Work with children embroidering, thereby developing the child in the creative process. We wish you creative inspiration!
