Welcome back! Today we will complete the pattern applying both: Indian and French techniques with the sequences. Thus, let us start from the last remaining list exercising Indian technique of embroidery applying metal threads and sequences. Place the lock on its base Then, set the sequin on the needle of the hook and bind it with the stitch. Continue applying loose stitches
Now, I will bind the sequences one to the other one. Try to place them with the same 2-3 mm frequency, following the drawn direction. In order to highlight the edge of the list place one short loose stitch to the opposite direction from the drawn line and then continue placing sequences turning back to the base part of the list. Secure the thread by an accurate lock cut the thread and draw the edge to the back side of the frame to secure Next, I would like us exercise the French method of embroidery, thus, I have replaced the threaded sequences onto the bobbin and will use them embroidering the last little square drawn next to the previous once. Input the hook to the corner of the square and place the little lock I’m ready to supply the first sequin The principle of binding sequences is equal to the principle of binding beads At the top of the corner input the needle to the opposite from the drawn line direction (without a sequin) Then return the hook back and continue stitching with the sequences following the drawn line to the next corner Repeat the process for all corners Secure the edges as usual My square is ready. Try to repeat the same empathizing the sharp corners Now, I would like us to apply the method on our pattern and embroider the inner part of the larger list Apply the little securing lock and embroider with the sequences till the top Coming to the top, place one loose stitch to the opposite side from the drawn line then return the hook and continue with the regular beading Apply the lock and secure the edges. Thus, I would like you to repeat the same, photograph your work and send it to me along with the questions or comments if you have. Our first pattern is completed: we have learned two methods of embroidering applying regular and metal threads, learned how to make an accurate and précised corners using beads and sequences I sincerely hope you have enjoyed the work and looking forward for the next project!
