From pattern to reality, watch Jasper grow
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.
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.
