my first attempt at embroidery on paper
Inspired by the work of artists Izziyana Suhaimi, Inge Jacobsen and Lauren Di Cioccio, I decided to keep it simple for my first trial and to go with an illustration rather than a photograph.
I love the "A woman dressed in red" by Birgit Schoessow on The New Yorker's cover and decided to give it a try.
how I did it: embroidered magazine cover tutorial
|I took a picture of the magazine and had it printed on a 8x11 photo paper, because the cover is so thin I was afraid to tear it while stitching on it.|
I used embroidery floss in these colors: DMC #334 - #817 - #814 - #3831- #310
|I placed a little padding surface and started to punched the holes for the stitches about 1/8" apart|
|This is how it looks on the back|
Again, to keep it simple for my first trial, I used a running stitch, and stitched over twice so it would look like a continuous line.
|On the wrist, where the bracelet is, I added beads rather than plain stitches|
|Love the hat that plays with the "O" of the title|
This is part of a fashion project that will be shared in the next few days ;) check back later in the week, ok?
