Hello dear readers! Welcome to my second how-to embroidery tutorials!
FSL is one of my favorite styles of embroidery, which is why I offer such a variety of my own original designs in my shop. I love using FSL to create fun and original accessories, like brooches, necklaces, and hair clips, to dress up my favorite outfits! Floral FSL pieces make wonderful gifts for friends and family who love to accessorize with style. You can also use FSL to create jewelry and customized clothing for yourself, your friends, or for sale!
Today I will teach you how to make a fashion accessory – Bee Brooch
1. To get started, choose your colors! To get a seamless result, make sure that the top and bottom thread matches in color.
2.Embroider the bee wings on a transparent organza, use white or light gray thread. Cut the wings of the bee. The wings must be cut out together: two wings make up one piece.
3.Prepare your water-soluble stabilizer. If your stabilizer isn’t thick enough, use two layers. To layer, cut 2 pieces of stabilizer in opposite directions (perpendicular to each other). Next, iron on low-medium heat (never high heat!) to remove any wrinkles. Then, spray pieces with spray glue and attach.To ensure that it is taught on the embroidery frame, secure the stabilizer with safety pins along the perimeter of the frame.
4.Embroider first three colors of the body of a bee on a water-soluble stabilizer.
5.Put the bee’s wings on the body of the bee and holding, embroider last color that will attach the wings
6. Rinse the finished piece with warm water to remove the stabilizer. Do not keep the embroidery wet for a long time – you don’t want to wash off the stabilizer completely as it will help the FSL piece hold its shape.
7.Leave to air dry or use a blow dryer to speed up the process.
8.Before the bee is almost dry, you can give it a shape (slightly bend it in the form of a pipe so that the bee does not look flat and give a volume). Use a glue gun to glue the clasp.
Congratulations, your fashionable brooch is ready!
