Extra Large Fabric print on heavy 270g Gaberdine 100% Cotton fabric depicting my ornate plate design for embroidery
Specially designed to ensure the cut out embroidery size is suitably large enough to be used as a place matt setting at a dinner table
Each full design square is 32 x 29cm allowing a working margin around the printed plate to manouver an embroidery hoop around the design as you work
Background pattern prints suitable for both:
Freehand Machine Embroidery
You will receive a glossy inkjet print of my completed embroidery on thin card, (one card print per order). This is to be used as reference as a bonus to help you look at as an example of how to illustrate with thread as you stitch
This project, along with all of my other print projects, is as wide as your imagination!
What would happen if you stitched the plate in crazy colours?!
What would happen if you embelished the plate with collaged, kitsch cherubs or the Queen, as if it were a Coronation plate?!
The finished embroidered print design can be sewn and then cut out and mounted onto any background of your choice.
See my own version appliqued and mounted before framing on a beautiful bright yellow vintage napkin.
What would you mount yours on?
I am also selling matching small versions of the plate which can be sewn used as coasters, with this large version as a potential dinner place matt.
The printed fabric is washable at 40 degrees on a gentle wash, but be aware that if embroidered with old or damaged threads that the dye can run, so proceed with caution before washing and iron on a medium warm iron
The print will be sent in an A4 envelope by First Class Post to Mainland UK only unless bought with other items
Please iron flat before begining to embroider
If you live outside of Mainland UK, please do contact me for a postal quotation at firstname.lastname@example.org
Why use a fabric print background for your embroidery work?
Following an existing pattern to start this craft is great for people who:
- Think they cannot draw!
- Perfectionists who are not so keen on the random messy lines that can be synonymous with machine embroidery
- People who would like to build up confidence and build up their skills in this craft before moving onto their own thread drawing
- Personally, I find it is very therapeutic just to simply trace the lines in thread without having to make design/colour decisions or to have to follow written instructions as I sew. You don’t have to think you just simply stitch over what is in front of you. I find the repetitive process of the stitching is soothing and satisfying, both by hand sewing and by machine.
