Children's metrics: cross stitch patterns and rules for beginners
If you can not brag about embroidering, but embroider with the cross, the following rulesCan come in handy. Do not think that the scheme and the key is sufficient for successful embroidery - sometimes the beginner stumbles on seemingly simplest stages.
Where does embroidery begin?
- Beginning almost always starts from the middle of the canvas;
- This is due to the fact that the drawing in this scenario does not "run away" anywhere, and remains exactly in the middle;
- In this case, it is easier to follow the scheme, as well as making the necessary calculations;
- In the middle there is a large part of the picture, so you will simply be more interested in sewing from there;
- Find the middle is not difficult - fold a couple of times the canvas in half, and where there will be a place for crossing the fold lines, there is the middle.
Mark the middle in any convenient way. With a paper scheme, you can do all the same. You can also advise making a copy from the drawing scheme, in case something happens to the original. And if you have marked out the canvas on the squares, then where the work begins - not so important. By marking the layout of the figure is clearly calculated.
How to put the crosses
Embroiderers often argue about crosses - how to put them all right. This is a matter of convenience, habit, style, if you want. But one thing is certain - all the upper stitches must have a one-sided direction.
Embroider crosses in two main ways:
- Classic or English cross. That is, first you sew one semicirc, and already on it you impose the second.
- Danish. I'm good at embroidering large arrays. First a series of half-crosses is made, after which the second row is laid on top, returning to the beginning of the work - the first half-skirts are sewn either horizontally or vertically.
But it's not limited to ordinary crosses. And all this can be used for embroidering metrics. When you are doing the metric, do not start from the center, but shift the drawing a bit to make an allowance for the inscription.
