From pattern to reality, watch Jasper grow

Jasper - Cavalier Spaniel X

From tracing the pattern on a transparent fabric to the conclusion of the embroidered image as life-like as the photograph.

Join student Cherril  Arthur, under Bev Tully’s guidance, in the demonstration of what can be achieved  with thread painting.

It begins here and each week will feature Cherril’s cavalier-poodle cross Jasper.Jasper Pattern

Cherril traced the pattern on to a transparent material.

 She tacked this material to the back of the main fabric. When the tacking was complete, the back  looked like this image to the left.

On the front of the embroidery, the tacked outline of the dog looked like this. With further tacking stitches, she continued to bring the details of the image from the back to the front.

In my next post, we will learn how to  build the face.
