2019年绗缝节 - 入口1,羽毛鸟

道格拉斯亚当斯着名,“我喜欢截止日期。我喜欢他们飞过的海底的声音。“我?我和Ol'道格拉斯部分的方式 - 我爱一个截止日期。他们帮助我焦点并给我一个特定的框架来管理我的时间,因为他们在日常工作中非常重要。我也了解到,我也喜欢我的工艺品的截止日期。新万博移动版y没有日期或一个旨在瞄准的活动,我很有能力蜿蜒而且被别人愤怒地注意的其他东西分散了分散注意力。那么,围绕着训练截止日期!

因此,去年我拉上了我的大女孩内衣,并决定首次进入绗缝节日。我的原因?1)获得完成的东西(yay截止日期!)和2)获得一些公正的反馈。我的许多不明飞行物,我选择了纸起重机块从刀架块交换新万博移动版y作为我的目标项目。I’d made the extra Cranes and filler blocks, everything was layered up ready to go, and I’d even made a start on the quilting, so really all (ha!) I had to do was quilt each block and assemble them into the finished quilt. Additionally, as a project that has involved other peoples’ effort, I felt it had greater priority than some of my other WIPs.

进入集团类别,我被安排到绗缝;飞行鹅块的火柴绗缝和DOT-to-dot设计以及四个不同的“元素”启发设计(水,空气,火,地球),用于在起重机周围的背景,已经沟渠已经绗缝。我的一个交换伙伴之一,我还有三个略小较小的起重机;她让我三个合适的大小,但“错误”是如此漂亮,我也希望他们成为被子的一部分,所以我在三个飞行的鹅块的后面使用它们,并在他们周围绗缝所以他们的阴影出现在被子的前面。

一旦绗缝的所有主块,我都会引起对所需的设置三角形来调整它。为了增强被子的日本人/东方人,我决定使用竹叶图案,并花了很多时间手掌贴上了很多绿色的叶子奶油背景!

那种面料有多好?这是一个非常幸运的发现在伐木电厂的Calico Kate,只适合我的竹叶。

You may notice that I cheated a bit with my setting triangles, which perhaps wasn’t the best decision ever made, but by this point the end of July was bearing down upon me with speed and I was just determined not to hear that “WHOOSH” sound. Each block was quilted with an overall pattern of elongated leaves, then the triangles were cut apart, trimmed to size and arranged around the quilted blocks.

最后,组装被子,我使用了一个修改的版本在YouTube上的Leah日缝合教程。在后面,我用过狭窄的奶油七莓面料条,它具有最迷人的编织纹理,以及在前面我使用了一个较轻的叶面料颜色的遮阳道,真的碰到竹外观。为了最大限度地提高效果,我甚至在每条条带上使用了MARKAL PAITTSTICKS来模板连接线。

为了使他们真正脱颖而出,我还融合了一条狭窄的卷曲条,然后将每个条带手动贴在篮子编织排列中的加入。被子的装订更像是纹理奶油七莓织物。我应该注意到我的叔叔在7月中旬有60岁生日派对,因为我是我唯一的家庭角落的人,甚至可以远程能够去,我不得不把我的被子变成“只有缝纫”状态然后把它带到英格兰南部,帮助他庆祝。我对被子拉出被子并在聊天时做得更加自豪!幸运的是,随着我在我发现之前的一代拼接器,手工缝纫可能很善于交际,每个人都对我所做的事情迷人迷人和原因。最后,最后一针和悬挂套筒附有,然后我像狗的头发和棉绒一样滚下,因为我可以仔细地发现并将其包装起来,准备送到NEC。

几天后,在伯明翰博物馆周围的陶器,我终于看到我的工作挂在绗缝节的节日!

So, aim 1 achieved – quilt finished and entered! Huzzah! What about aim 2? Well, I have to say that I was nervous when I opened the envelope with the judges’ feedback in it, but in fact what I found therein was very fair and encouraging comments and scores that, based on the very high standard at the FoQ that year, seemed entirely reasonable. I did get dinged a little over those setting triangles being a bit wibbly! However, in truth I’m not sure how much was due to bias effects and how much was down to having folded the quilt for delivery. Now that it’s on my bed, keeping me cosy in all this rough weather, it’s impossible to notice any wobbles. For me, entering a quilt show is very much an opportunity to learn, both during the construction phase and from the feedback afterwards. I can say for sure that it was a really positive experience that I am looking forward to repeating this year!

第一个Quilty出版 - 敌人!

尽管我去年近年来,2019年的近期无线电沉默实际上是一个非常积极的一年,绗缝。其中一个积极的东西?我提交了一个原创设计制造现代杂志and got accepted! The staff at Make Modern were lovely and made my first publication a really smooth experience, I can’t thank them enough for taking a chance on an “unknown” like me. <3

来自Make现代问题的飞溅页面32

当我看着坐在正方形围绕一片正方形的既有四猫形状的完善的块时,设计本身就是出现的。我想,这一切都很好,但如果有摩尔!猫?!我对等边三角形的喜爱在这里有很好的记录,所以我打开了我可靠的inkscape并设置为涂鸦。由此产生的设计是响应,六(!)猫坐在六角形,由其缠绕的尾巴形成。它是基础纸张拼凑,并用“读取 - 稳固”或坚实的织物拼接。我的第一个版本用自由打印拼接,我喜欢,但并非所有这些都是足够强大的,真正“卖掉”猫形状,所以在我的提交期间,我建议我可以重塑模式(另一个良好的测试机会!)不同的面料,使现代人员同意的是一个好主意。

原来的“响声”

幸运的是,我已经有一个令人愉快的繁琐丛Quantum通过Guicy Giuce为Andover,我们同意他们只是重拍的东西。这是一个很好的电话 - 我喜欢皇冠版本2.0的柔软新鲜度!

Somewhat unusually for a cushion pattern, I used a piped edge on both the original and the remake – a bit more effort, but I firmly believe that the finishing details are what really makes a good design. I also suggest the use of left-over scraps to make a fun pieced cushion back:

敌对 - 许多其他美丽的现代模式!- 现在可以使用发布现代杂志的32。<3

一个里程碑结束

在我以前的帖子中,我在这个被子的快速照片,但它应该比这更好。这是启动我成为绗缝机的路径的被子;它现在已经完成和天赋,但我的绗缝旅程仍在继续。

当我姐姐宣布她的婚礼时,它开始回来,我热情地宣称我会让幸福的夫妻婚礼被子,尽管以前从未做过任何一种被子。幸运的是(?)我是一个快速的学习者,并在缝纫机上进行了一些经验,以绘制。我做了一些研究,发现了一个心脏模式,我喜欢看起来可以实现的,然后在红色,粉红色和奶油中彻底过度过度曝光的购买面料,没有真正的最终文章的大大概念,或者我真正需要多少面料。然后它恍然大悟了perhaps在较少的高调项目上有一点练习可能是一个好主意,所以我开始了一个讨价还价,而是使用我从当地超市购买的廉价缝纫机。

显而易见的是,当我开始组装那个讨价还价时,我没有完全掌握事情,所以我捆绑了它 - 以及一年中的所有东西都消失了,消失了背包。在我回到威尔士时,我找出了从那以后一直是有史以来的令人愉快的绗缝小组,他们把我指着正确的方向!随着Bargello完成,我堵住了婚礼被子的心脏块和顶部装配,为边界和背部发现了一些伟大的面料,最后分层了一切。

当我意识到我不太确定如何接近绗子时,发生了更多的停滞不前!到这个时候,我做了其他大床绗缝,并慢慢地建立了我的FMQ技能,但直到我被要求狗坐在一个害怕的朋友坐下来,我终于将牙齿沉入绗缝。她有一个喇叭柜,我以前从未尝试过的东西,但我很快意识到这只是我需要帮助我被绗的这么大项目所需的东西。用环绕着武装武装自己的pfaff qe4.2,我设置了绗缝螺旋风暴!

The hearts were quilted in the ditch around the outside, and I got真的勇敢并在顶部和底部边界做了羽毛。要管理被子的大小,我精神上将该区域分成近似季度并从中心绗缝。这意味着,尽管被子的大尺寸,但我只需要在任何时候都通过我的机器的喉咙大部分大部分被子的大部分。相信我,那是pl!Stopping the rest of the quilt from slithering off the table became the other big challenge.

出于好奇,在我完成绗缝后,我称重了别针 - 半磅金属!被子本身很重,但这仍然是摔跤的额外重量。

我喜欢被子的后面展示了绗缝,这个也不例外!你可以看到我拼接到后面的“备用”心的条纹 - 这就是当你开始制作被子而不知道它最终有多大的时候会发生什么!您还可以在绗码过程中看到漩涡“进化”。幸运的是,从前面那样明显看起来很明显!

我俩都骄傲,并放心完成了这个被子,这是一个在许多方面的第一种方式,并教我这么多。值得庆幸的是,我的妹妹和姐夫似乎也很激动它!

在电线下面

六月和七月一直是垃圾制作;出于某种原因,他们经常适合我。但由于我已经让6月幻灯片没有单个帖子,我不能让同样的事情发生在七月!我在这里和那里曾经缝制过Tosneak,我有几件事我很高兴地工作或努力,所以在这里他们是。

蜂蜜壶蜜蜂

In some ways, you could say that this has been a “distraction” from finishing other projects, but on the other hand it’s actually been one of the few reasons I’ve had recently to slope off to the craft room for a bit of quiet sewing that I’m not sure I would have managed otherwise, so on balance I don’t think this was a bad project to join up with! I’m not yet caught up with all the blocks, but I have made progress with several of them.

五月的街区之一是羽毛叶blockby暗示丛林的朱莉。最初,我决定通过在接口的基础上拼接我的条纹来修改我的版本,并使用Kona石墨背景的废料,使叶子边缘看起来锯齿状:

他们是…。好的?I liked the effect in general, but for me they didn’t sit as well with the other blocks as they might, so last week I whipped up a more “vanilla” version but gave myself permission to use some “virgin” FQs to make them. After all, if I didn’t have scraps in the colours I wanted, it was clearly time to create some!

Much better! These are a bit more zingy and modern in feel. Not sure if I’ll use all four yet, but at least I have the option.

六月的街区是Economy Squareby盛开的心脏绗缝城市编织块by缝中的咪咪说咪咪。经济方块超级容易快速快乐,高度上瘾!我一直在一起九个九个,一切都是为了一个项目Linus被子的顶级中心:

I’m not完全地确定那个秋天的叶子/“玉米片”面料选择,但它现在已经完成了,它肯定不会显示任何婴儿呕吐!这是一个非常好的方法来展示我对这种项目恰好敲门的森林动物面料的一种非常好的方法,我将更多地为我的蜂蜜锅蜜饯被子做更多。我已经挑剔了一堆中心正方形,现在我正在试镜界:

城市编织的块给了我一些犹豫,部分原因是我是如何解释它的,但是当我终于将指示转录到一张纸上时,将它进入工艺室并进入切割和拼接,它真的很好:

七月的成品块是混合废料块by她可以被套的leanne和奖金蘑菇blockStitching Notes

在初始之后,“meep我没有足够的颜色!”那一刻,事实证明我真的是完全的did有足够的颜色,这是一个非常愉快的块,非常有效。

蘑菇块被提出为5月份可能的替代块,我有五个打印出来,在我的do vent列表上,所以当molli发布了一个魔术蘑菇赠品机会,我鞭打了一个成型:

这些东西是有趣的,另外四个应该很快跟随。

The “RSC17” blocks are starting to look pretty good as a group, though it’s going to be one heck of a quilt in size!

我的地板不够大......

I still have a couple of book blocks and a stack of mini log cabins (and可能是蜜蜂宣布的奖金树上的奖金树木,但我对运营追赶的感到非常满意。

French Knot Folly

由换股者的推动感兴趣(谢天谢地,我没有加入,新万博移动版y或者我sureI would have disappointed my partner), I started a rather epic embroidery project of French knots on a silk ground (lined with cotton for better stitching and sturdiness):

如果我用半体积的东西替换铰链硬件,我正在使用一个坐在的箍。就像它一样,很难收紧它足以在最远点缝合时真正停止箍下垂。和数量法国结很缓慢!But it’s a nice project to have next to my chair in the sitting room because it doesn’t require loads of thought – just grab some variety of blue embroidery thread (so far we have cotton floss, silk perle, cotton perle, rayon and metallic threads) and get knotted! The beads have added a glitter and sparkle that I’m really enjoying and I also have more buttons and shells to add to break up the area. The tide’s coming in – slowly!

Hexie互换#2

我确新万博移动版y实决定加入的工匠交换是第二次Hexie交换,加入我的藏上的3/4“Hexies的Infinite Hexie Map项目(无限,因为它在我完成之前可能是无限的!)这次我发了Hexies到六个人,到目前为止,来自两个合作伙伴的近视。这些是我发出的团体:

到目前为止,这些是我收到的那些:

他们选择了一些伟大的面料,尽管我意识到我需要在左手照片中重新制作六角形,因为它们在3/4以下的晶须下面就会出现了一个晶圆,并且在这大小的情况下,差异是非常明显和不可调和的。在与其他人交换时,这些事情总是存在风险,而是我接受的那种风险。他们已经没有点评,并被按下,我有很多备用模板!谈到,到目前为止,这是迷你山的成品Hexies:

自从我算了以来,这是一个LIL,但我认为已经有超过400个Hexies!许多人已经被交换伙伴制作,但很多是我从我的废料中缝制的那些。达到800甚至1000岁!我的海喜精拼接套装很好,所以我没有借口:

I’m going to need to print and cut more templates soon, though!

旧的东西

Oooo看!在旧的进展(非常老!)擦!I was having something of an off-day where I wanted to do something but didn’t want it to be anything terribly complicated or fussy, so I made myself trim down all the shockingly badly cut batik charm squares I bought to extend this Disappearing Nine-Patch:

Pro Tip - 4.75“是一个糟糕的在D9P被子中使用的广场大小!但我开始所以我想到我会尝试完成,所以稍后的一部分修剪和半个新的D9P块,我有这个:

我现在喜欢它现在更大。它仍然需要一些边界来框架它,并使它更加明智,但现在我觉得它有希望。它可能需要的是一个非常狭窄的黑暗边界,将把它拉到一起,也让我“修复”任何大小的奇怪才能造成的4.75“正方形。我已经在类似的调色板中有几个蜡染样本和位,所以某种形式的边界不应该太难创造。飞鹅,也许?

阿格兰卡大象

留在蜡染和边界的主题,我很幸运地在当地的汽车启动在克拉拉瑟在克拉赫发现。这是99.999%的总TAT,但在我的速度下缠绕在相当疲惫的产品中,我的眼睛陷入了一些看起来有一点有前途的东西和更多的织物-Y。一些检查揭示了两种类似颜色的蜡染板,既是大象则为中心特征。这对以3英镑,我真的不能把它们留在那里!除了一杯茶和培根萨尼,他们是我买的唯一东西。

他们甚至仍然有艺术家的信息和序列号文件:

目前我认为高大的狭窄可能成为一个墙壁悬挂,越来越宽敞的方形可能会制作一个壮大的床或扔被子。嗯,匹配装饰,太搂着吗?我想我会发现!如果我设法将自己组织到下个月的绗缝节,我将随身携带这两个人并狩猎合适的蜡染,为他们制作边界。宽松的计划目前是在面板中存在的蜡染设计上的边界设计,如果我能弄清楚如何熟悉它们。

所以,这就是我在哪里。它实际上似乎很多,它不想觉得我最近赚得很多!也许我将不得不潜入另一个在工作许可证时的牧师假期。

赶上我的蜂蜜,第1部分

蜂蜜壶蜜蜂,即!我承认,上个月的RSC17“颜色”混合彩色印花扔了一点。我是怎么做的与我的科纳石墨块合作?我戴过很多,但实际上没有困扰at the options I had. Eventually, I hit the craft room and pulled out the relevant basket and Tula Pink’s Chipper stripes leapt out and sat on my face, dragging some snappy coordinating chevrons with them. Sold!

因此,我的版本Audrey’s Stripey Stripe block来了!这是一个非常好的简单块,无法关闭列表。休息也很好看。我可以在以后的日期添加一些缝合,但现在我会留下这个决定,直到我制作了我要去的所有街区。

你可以看到我也完成了一个2017 block通过榆树街道的帕蒂为这套,用Kona Graphite作为背景和四种不同的闪光2金属印刷品。我喜欢它 - 可见但低调,您可以看到它,但它不会从实际块中拖动注意力。当我意识到它与宽度相同molli的#sewroyal块, 出色地!这两个人刚刚联合在一起。

我有一个第二副本打印出我所做的明亮背景块(我在精神上开始称为“在公园里的”野餐“),它位于我的待办事项清单上!

Lastly, for now, here is my version of the星空block由设计设计Kylie of A Persevering Momchosen byKitty of Night Quilter

正如你所看到的,我玩得开心!当我下载模式并看到一个选项在2-1 / 2中完成时,另一个选项在12英寸完成12“时,我的思绪开始旋转。我想知道,最小的块塞进最大的中心吗?我印刷和测量了......是的!它完全呢!我挖出了我最繁荣的废料,首先组成了四个小版本,然后组装了四个最大的版本(有一些轻微的修改 - 我真的就像纸张拼贴大型直线形状,我可以旋转完全切割,并且可以让浪费更少​​,并将整个很多放在一起。在大多数情况下,街区加入了很好的速度,尽管我确实需要解压缩并重新调整小中心块一次。不幸的是,我没有足够的金色星星在奶油面料上为所有块(我只有两者才足够了),所以我替代了一些金鼻耳。我简要考虑混合每个块的背景,但是决定比每个背景类型的两个块更分散注意力。我想我是对的。

我也很满意它也与其他野餐块坐在一起。

我目前正在努力留在剩下的蜂蜜锅蜜蜂(也许也许是几个未经核化的额外的额外的额外,因为我喜欢'EM,这是我的被子,Dammit!),希望很快分享它们。

一个懒的彩虹饰面

原来的草图懒惰是基于的。

四月对我来说是一个奇怪的月份。这不是不生产(在工艺品或工作方面),但它新万博移动版y感觉like it was. Weird. However, I can share a finish that has taken me to some new places and that I am very proud of – the Rainbow Sloth is finished!

在几个整理细节中花了一定程度的抖动(如何做脸/眼睛/爪子,绣花或不绣,悬挂解决方案,叶子安排和附着),但最后它一切都融合在一起!

脸上比我预期的剧烈 - 主要是因为我想展示经典的懒惰面部标记不是最终有所看起来像头骨。为了使它看起来“fuzzier”,我最终用一个带有特殊物业的螺纹绗缝了白色区域 - 马德拉拉的“万圣节”闪光 - 黑暗的涤纶线,这真的很好。我故意允许绗缝重叠,在更好的地方重叠,以帮助混合过渡更好,然后留下眼睛和鼻子标记,以便它们保留了一些维度和定义。

我可能有点丢失了一些面部绗缝的情节 - 在我的防守中,它对被绗缝的颜色是一个非常挑战的挑战,这些颜色与你绗缝的面料完美融合!

懒惰的眼睛和鼻子是一种合成的,略带金属,皮革看起来的碎屑,我对字面意思– more than long enough for me to forget how annoying it is to sew with. It sticks to the machine’s foot, rucks up and generally refuses to stay put – and of course you can’t pin it where it’ll show because pins leave “scars”. I had to completely re-do both eyes after the first try ended up a total mess.

However, it was also a great choice for the claws, so when I came to do them I pinned a generously sized piece of tissue paper over the area I wanted to place the claws, drew claw shapes based on what I could see through the paper, then carefully slid a piece of the synth-leather underneath so that it was sandwiched between the quilt top and the tissue paper.

这使得它沿着线条缝合,无限更令人愉悦和准确的经验 - 为了完成外观,我只需要小心地仔细修剪超出我的缝合线路etVoilà!Claws!

如您所见,我确实决定绣有一点叶子 - 而且我想我可以放心地说我能完全现在做法语结!用于所有刺绣的牙线是DMC的专业发光 - 黑暗螺纹 - 因为如果你要发光,发光!正确的?正确的!这与我曾经勾勒出懒惰的牙线是相同的,并且也将稍微挤入树枝上的一个葡萄藤中。

没有用猪肉和建立三脚架,这是我可以在灯光出门后可以管理的最糟糕的照片,但它显示了一般的想法。我真的很苹果手机怎么下载万博体育高兴叶子上的法式结不同的模式实际上可以区分,而背景面料的发光恒星也可以制作。

Because I knew that I wanted at least some of the leaves (especially along the top) to overlap the edge of the quilt, I had to think carefully about the order of attaching the binding, hanging solution and leaves so that they didn’t interfere with each other. To begin with, I trialed different leaf positions until I had a look I liked, then attached them one by one. To keep the nice leafy look of them, the best way to attach them appeared to be to stitch along either side of the midvein of each leaf, far enough to to make sure the leaf was firmly attached and wouldn’t flop, but not so far that the stitching would obstruct other features or get in the way of the binding. This also means that the leaves can be pulled back to “peek” underneath.

如果我没有真正的思想,它可能已经超级可爱,在叶子下面添加了一些小“隐藏的”生物,作为一种绗缝的“复活节彩蛋” - 啊,也许是下一次!

一旦分支上的叶子附着,我会解决悬挂解决方案:

经过很多思想,我制作了一个折叠的“袖子”,搭配圆的顶部边缘,将其接口用于支撑,在任一端制定几条成角度的线路,借助于LIL更加接口,以便加强,沿每条线插入长扣眼,但仅在套筒的一侧。这个想法是,木制销钉可以通过纽扣孔轻松传递并保持在套筒内,从而支撑被子,尽管略微规矩。套筒最初用来自边缘的缝合1/8“的缝合线的被子的背面附着,然后在连接结合时更牢固地保持。(Incidentally, this photo also shows a bit I’m really fond of, namely, the “ghost” sloth on his branch, created by the quilting on the back. I was very particular about matching the needle and bobbin threads so the shape is really easy to make out.)

The binding was next – I confess I “cheated” a bit here and used a nice navy-blue satin binding from my favourite haberdashery shop in Cardigan, folded around the edge of the quilt, clipped into place and then secured with this decorative leafy stitch. Part of me is still slightly wondering whether I should have used a green thread for this, but actually I like that it doesn’t shout for attention against the rest of the quilt, while keeping the “rainforest” theme.

Ghost Sloth由星星和彩虹制成!

最后,通过安全的装订,我可以在底部附加最后三个叶子(缝合保持它们的缝合与装订重叠)并呼叫件完成。它肯定是一个有趣的旅程和目的地,我希望,不会让收件人失望!懒惰正在前往他在加拿大的新家的路上,希望他会迅速(!)和舒适的旅程。他还允许我自己勾选一个艰辛的里程碑,因为他几乎完全由我已经藏起的材料制作 - 我特别购买的东西是两个闪光的螺纹和绑定 - 以及绑定创建该磁带效果肯定让我挖洞穿过废弃篮!

将与Treens'n''Dhread联系在周四,我可以获得一个whoop-whoop和tgiff - 侧边栏中的所有链接。

染色实验 - 第1轮

我长期以来一直着迷于染色过程 - 赫克,我的第二年网络项目在UNI上是织物染料的化学 - 但是自从我上次试图自己染成织物已经有一段时间了。我用织物染料达到了织物染料Pantone Marsala挑战几年前,这是一个非常简单的染浴与迪尔 - 扣篮,等待,冲洗,洗,缝制。最近,我一直致力于冰染色和日本的涩叶抗蚀剂染色技术。在那里,我想知道这两种技术无法合并为什么这两种技术的任何充分理由?我看不到一个!为额外的乐趣,我的面料为此实验被打印出白色的白色,带有羽毛图案:

Shibori +冰染色+印花织物吗?WTH,让我们这样做!

最初我买了600万个面料,认为我会冰染上它并从中制作衣服,虽然我决定用它只是用于染色实验,并寻找我的梳妆台的不同面料。为了使其更容易处理,我将其切成4〜1米的碎片,然后将其全部用Colsperse洗净,以去除任何织物治疗方法。Unfortunately, I probably didn’t use enough Colsperse – after reading some fairly fruitless and contradictory results from an internet search, I emailed Colourcraft (the makers of Colsperse) to ask them directly how much I ought to use when washing fabric in a washing machine with their product (it is the 21st century and I have better things to do than wash umpty metres of cotton fabric by hand!), and what they told me suggested that I should have used three times as much. This may be relevant later on.

在网上查找一些Shibori教程和想法后(Townhill Studio博客特别有用),我觉得我有一个合理的处理我应该瞄准的东西,所以我将1米片中的一个剪切到四个非常慷慨的胖子中,并开始用松散的波浪模式标记第一件。我的水擦笔 - 或者我试过!不幸的是,自从我上次使用这支笔并且它已经干涸了,它已经忽略了一段时间,所以我狠狠地决定使用我的空气擦除标记笔 - 这是一个相当关注的决定,因为我稍后会显示。所有标记和缝纫都在织物的相反方面进行。

I’m actually not a big fan of this pen in general – it disappears disconcertingly fast (except when it doesn’t), so it was a bit of a race against time between marking up the fabric and managing to get it stitched while the ink was still visible. Add a thumping migraine and I really wasn’t a happy bunny last Saturday!

Townhill Studio建议使用短的白纱或厚棉花作为缝合的每一块塞子,但我没有立即这样的东西,所以我用了一些小,便宜的珠子 - 它锻炼了。我也开始使用卓越的线程的底线来拼接,但这结果是一个非常糟糕的想法,因为当我试图绘制线程时,它太容易被抢购。我发现自己在第一块中取代了几条缝合线,随后使用了吉特曼涤纶线,这对所有缝线更强大(尽管如果被拉得太难了,但它非常不受破损!)。缝制线条时,我发现如果在我开始缝合之前手指沿着线条压制,我会更快地走得更快 - 它使遵循绘制的线条更容易。如上所述,这是与偏头痛做的绝对谋杀,但一旦完成,我真的很喜欢效果!(而且我击落了一些止痛药,隐藏在一个黑暗的房间里......)

我尝试的下一个设计是一些同心圆:

I marked a staggered grid of dots 5″ apart (errrm, except for one I apparently didn’t measure right!), then used a cotton reel and a roll of masking tape as templates to draw the surrounding circles. The outer circle was sewn with a single pleat like the ripples, the inner circle was sewn with a line of running stitch and then gathered and bound firmly into a “stalk” with the remaining thread tail. I also tucked a bead into each gather and positioned it in the middle of the circle, where it became a knobbly end to the bound-up stalk.

不幸的是我没有第三片Shibori的WIP照片我试过 - 这已经很晚了,我累了!它是在织物上不同尺寸的六尖雪花形状的随机散射,然后用单个褶皱缝制。第四次脂肪季度完全没有缝制,这样我就可以看到织物在没有额外的涩叶效应的情况下如何染色。

一些空气擦除笔标记仍然是相当明显的,但谷歌建议他们也可以用水去掉,所以我将所有的碎片(包括未标记,未缝制的一缝)浸入冷水中过夜,以去除任何剩余的分数。(哈!)

第二天早上,我建立了我的染色钻机 - 一套可堆叠的线材冷却架和塑料盒,架子适合它们,既是为其制造的,都是从当地折扣商店查理的£不多。

两个机架在盒子里整齐地适合,仍然可以盖上盖子;三个机架在顶部窥视,但如果我真的希望他们来说仍然可以工作。

两个胖子在一个机架上并排齐全,所以我设置了两个机架,使上织物滴在较低的织物上。大量的报纸被放下来拯救我的地板从任何潜在的染料溢出。

我也用一些塑料勺子来处理染料,用我的染色套件和防尘面具来处理染料,以防止吸入任何令人讨厌的东西:

对于冰,我从路上的车库买了一袋派对冰,然后用擀面杖反复地打破了冰块一点:

I used about 3/4 of this bag of ice for this dyeing session.

现在我必须在这里忏悔。我喜欢染色和冰染色的概念,我过于喜欢经常的“彩虹呕吐”效应seems to occur when these techniques are used. Shibori usually manages to be much classier, and I have decided that a key factor in this is the restrained use of colour. Consequently, I decided that I would only use a maximum of two colours on each each of my pieces – turquoise and navy blue for one side and ultra blue and emerald green for the other side:

Six of these came in a starter kit, the navy blue, black and emerald green were bought individually.

然而,在我染色的肥胖季度之前,我需要通过将其浸泡在苏打灰的溶液中来完成准备织物,使染料更好地粘在纤维上,这里是空气擦除笔回来的地方我:

The moment the soda ash solution hit the fabric, all the purple pen marks returned with a vengeance – useful for a spy sending a secret message maybe, but since I’m not and I wasn’t, I wasn’t best pleased! In fairness, I had been half-wondering whether this was going to be a problem so although it was very annoying, it was not a huge shock. Fortunately, after half an hour in the soda ash solution, the marks seemed to dissipate quite a lot and I figured that any that hadn’t would probably be hidden by the dye anyway, so I moved onto the next stage, arranged my fabrics on the racks, covered them with chunks of ice and finally sprinkled generous quantities of my chosen dyes over each side:

RHS:海军蓝+绿松石,顶部:Shibori涟漪,底部:涩叶雪花。LHS:翡翠绿色+超蓝色,顶部:Shibori圈子,底部:普通面料。

我覆盖着粘胶胶片的盒子,让一切都干涸,然后离开了整个批次24小时融化并做它的事情。出色地。我确实在一个点戳了一点雪花,以确保他们正在彻底滴下。

The racks did a fantastic job of holding the fabric out of the melt-water dye mix.

24小时后,所有的冰都很好,真正融化,我热衷于看看我得到了什么结果。特别感到非常惊讶地看待绿色+蓝色一面发生了什么。对于声称是蓝色的染料,它肯定包含一个很多of red. The green split a little too, although not as obviously. In comparison, the navy+turquoise side was much more as I expected to find it.

我使用了Procion Dyes,显然它们并非所有纯色 - 一些都是不同颜色的混合物,并且由于水(流动阶段)​​在织物上的运动(流动相)的运动而以色谱法分开的不同染料组分。有趣的,但不是完全是我要去的看法!事实上,危险地靠近彩虹呕吐物。“超”蓝色可能并不是所有的超级!However, I rinsed everything thoroughly in cold tap water and performed the rather tedious task of unpicking all the shibori stitching I’d spent so long putting in. Next time I will find some white yarn or cotton to use instead of beads – it will be much easier and I won’t feel compelled to salvage scraps of yarn like I did with the beads! A hot wash with more Colsperse and I could finally see the finished effects (the fabrics were still damp in this photos, so they’re a little darker than when dry):

It’s a bit of a mixed bag! The shibori tended to be not as distinct as I hoped, and I have some theories as to why, which I will discuss below. The circles were the most effective, probably because of the chromatographic effect of the separated dye components. I’m not mad on how the colours worked but I think there’s promise there. The plain fabric from below the circles is what I was期待看我何时涂抹绿色和蓝色染料。没关系,虽然更强大,绿色较为更好。只要涩叶拼接所关注的雪花是一个失败的失败(几乎没有人出来),但羽毛对着大理石蓝色背景是非常有吸引力的,所以我不能称之为完整的失败。涟漪很漂亮,我很宽容看。而不是一丝紫色笔随时随地,谢天谢地!

在更一般的备注上,颜色(特别是海军蓝色)最终比我预期的那么饱和,并希望他们成为。更强大的颜色将有助于提高涩叶对比和羽毛的外观,因此我将在未来的实验中提高这一点。

结论和猜想

这是一个非常有趣的第一个实验,我学会了一个很多。我学到的第一件事是空气擦除笔是标记Shibori设计的糟糕选择!我现在正在研究一些基于粉笔的标记工具。我还了解到,当与冰染技术一起使用时,染料不能依赖于不分裂,尽管这可能导致计划时的有趣效果。

The shibori stitches generally did not work as well as hoped, which I put down to several possible reasons: 1) 24 hours may be a long time in politics – it’s certainly a long time in fabric dyeing! Long enough for dye to wick into even the most firmly stitched folds and pleats, perhaps? I suspect so. 2) In my attempt to remove the pen marks, the fabric was really well soaked with water before application of the soda ash solution and before dyeing – I theorise that this excessive wetness may have facilitated the movement of dye into the stitched folds. A shorter soaking time may produce crisper results in future. 3) The stitching wasn’t tight enough – next time I will use yarn stoppers and better thread.

比较轻的染料有限公司lour on the finished pieces, I suspect that part of the problem was too little Colsperse during the pre-wash phase, which thus failed to remove all the “finish” on the fabric before I dyed it. This finish would prevent the dye from sticking properly to the fibres of the cotton. Certainly there was a fair bit of “loose” dye released from the fabrics during rinsing. I also wonder if the water in the very wet fabric diluted the soda ash solution too much, which would also reduce the effectiveness of the dye. A shorter soak in water and a longer soak in the soda ash solution might help. After the email from Colourcraft (and having seen the results of experiment #1), I re-washed the remaining un-dyed fabric with the right amount of Colsperse, so it should now accept dye better.

要尝试的事情

  • 一种不同的标记方法,不能与苏打灰做出反应!
  • 少(不)浸入普通水中浸泡,苏打灰分较长
  • 冰下下的时间减少(最多8-12小时?)
  • “Staged” dyeing process – start with the lighter dye, then add a second darker dye (possibly with extra ice) after ~8-12 hours?
  • 拿一个洗衣袋,用于保护洗衣机中的细腻物品,以减少织物切碎(在最后一次穿过洗衣机之后,染色的碎片相当严重打结和乱蓬蓬。
  • 尝试在具有长尺寸缝合长度的缝纫机上缝合一些设计 - 对所有技术不起作用,但可能是他人的实时节约

这让我很多思考,我不是几乎完成了我的实验!我希望我能尽快与您分享更多结果。

感到懒散吗?

我最近的Craftster Craft Swap有点分散注意力 - 这次为迷你“艺术”被子新万博移动版y,但是你定义了这一点!回顾了以前的艺术品互动掉,似乎很开放解释。幸运的是,我的伴侣提供了许多不同的“主题”和颜色方案,她喜欢 - 其中一些人对我来说是不熟悉的,其他我可以落后。“明亮的彩虹颜色”和“懒惰”跳下了我的屏幕(确实,她有很多懒惰的图片固定!),所以...彩虹懒惰是!

自从我看到以来,Ticker-Tape Techning致密了我thesestunning examples by Craftster member sheepBlue, but I hadn’t had a suitable project that was crying out for the ticker-tape treatment until now. To check the validity of the idea, I looked at a huge number of sloth photos on Google, then did a rough sketch of a pose I liked and filled it in with a “ticker tape” effect in coloured pencil. Warning, very sketchy sketch ahead!

是的,这可以工作!虽然没有白色背景,vervs。我的伴侣还提到她对“非标准”被子形状感兴趣,所以我决定尝试一个圈子。

在inkscape中清理和重新缩放我的粗糙涂鸦后,我打印出圆圈和懒惰的模板并得到切割。背景面料不是我的第一选择,但实际上我真的很喜欢它 - 星星在黑暗中发光!在我完成之前,我可能会在被子上扔一些其他辉煌的功能。本质上,我的某些部分仍然拥有“我曾经的80年代的孩子的所有品味和辨别。星形面料也在后面的淀粉的体面应用,因为它似乎相当脆弱,当我为它添加了东西时,我不希望它伸展或皱纹。我希望通过使用冰箱纸模板方法来贴花懒惰,但事实证明我的冷冻纸被打破了,因此邦德布尔不得不来救援我。懒惰尚未熨烫又是因为我想先做他的分支,因为我被叶子变得非常分散注意力。

显然有一边是有光泽的?我的卷没有得到那件备忘录!

我以前从未尝试过反向贴花,但这看起来很好看起来很好!在绘制卡片上不同大小的叶片形状并将它们切割出来后,我使用这些模板来切出与模板相同的尺寸和绿色“叶子”形状,以及我添加了接缝津贴的绿色“叶子”形状。〜1/4“。然后,我在粉红色/紫色面料背面制作了一个中静脉和一些有机曲线标记:

一旦这些标记用绿色螺纹和直线针脚过度缝制,我小心翼翼地剪掉了绿色面料,以暴露叶子右侧的亮色标记,然后用我的凉脚脚沿着中间的黑暗绿色人造丝-Vein和每个叶标记,使它们真正流行:

为了好的措施,我也扔了一些人造蓬托进入混合!

我使用了几层厚的缝合缝合的层,我似乎有群众,并在我蜷缩在人造丝绣线螺纹上,然后小心地剪掉了远离中间静脉和标记:

要给叶子一张完成的外观,我用不同的绿色面料备份它们,然后转过身来,给了他们一个快速按压并一直围绕到闭合的转动间隙:

最后,为了使“人造 - 蓬托”真正脱颖而出,我在叶片标记之间设置了我的FMQ脚和涂鸦自由运动“静脉”,将前后层握在一起并增强叶片外观:

即使没有FMQ,叶子仍然对他们来说仍然有一个非常令人愉悦的感觉和尺寸,很好地令人信服的叶状卷曲。我真的为什么来了(虽然我可以在没有我的线程在自由运动缝纫期间打破Umpty时期的情况!),我认为他们也会在被子上看起来很好:

(这可能不是最终的位置!)

正如您所看到的,我已经填写了Ticker-Tape的分支机构,下一个工作是将那些掉下来的(已经有了虚假的punto wadding,弄清楚如何在树皮上添加纹理。当我到达他到位时,懒洋洋也会得到一些人造 - Punto - 直到我决定任何叶子是否会落后于他。乐天的新事物和实验,对我来说这么巨大的乐趣!
