懒惰彩虹完成

原始草图Slothy的基础上的。

4月份以来,一个奇怪的一个月对我来说。它不从事生产(在工艺或工作方面),但它新万博移动版y感觉喜欢它。奇怪。然而,我可以分享一个带我到一些新的地方,我非常自豪的终点——彩虹树懒完成了!

花了一定程度的抖动了几本整理细节(如何做脸/眼睛/爪子,绣花或不绣花,悬挂解决方案,叶子的排列和附件),但最终它都走到一起!

脸比我预料的麻烦 - 主要是因为我想表现的经典懒脸的标记,但最后变成了一个头骨。为了让它看起来“更模糊”,我用一种特殊性质的线——马德拉的“万圣节”在黑暗中发光的涤纶线——把白色的区域缝制得非常好。我故意让绗缝在一些地方重叠较暗的区域,以帮助更好地混合过渡,并留下眼睛和鼻子标记未绗缝,以便它们保留一些维度和清晰度。

我也许略输一些面部绗缝的情节 - 在我的防守,这是一个很大的挑战有彩色被套,融合在完美与织物你绗缝!

树懒的眼睛和鼻子都是人造的,有点金属的,皮革样的布料的碎片年份-足够让我忘记缝衣服有多烦人了。它会粘在机器的脚上,皱起,通常不愿待在原地——当然,你不能把它钉在它会出现的地方,因为别针会留下“伤疤”。在第一次尝试完全失败后,我不得不重新做两只眼睛。

同时,它也是一个很好的选择的爪子,所以当我来到他们我固定一块很大的薄纸区域我想把爪子,把爪形状根据我能看穿,然后小心地滑块下面的synth-leather以便它被夹在被子上和纸。

这使得沿着线缝起来的感觉更加愉悦和准确——为了完成整个外观,我只需要仔细地修剪我缝线上多余的材料等瞧!爪!

你也可以看到,我决定在叶子上刺绣一点——我想我可以自信地说我可以完全做法语节吧!用于所有的刺绣牙线,是DMC的专长发光在这黑暗的话题 - 因为如果你要发光,发光!对?对!这是为我所勾勒Slothy相同牙线,有点也措辞成的分支藤蔓之一。

如果没有rootling并架设脚架,这是后灯灭了,我可以管理这块最稳定的照片,但它显示了总体思路。我真的很苹果手机怎么下载万博体育高兴的是,叶子法国结出不同的图案其实是可以区分,并在背景布发光的星星可以做出来了。

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.

如果我没有字面上只是刚有这个想法,也有可能是超可爱的添加一些小“隐藏的”叶子底下的动物作为一种奎尔蒂的“彩蛋” - 不错啊,也许下一次!

一旦在树枝上的叶子附着,我攻克了悬解:

相当多的思想之后,我做了一个折叠“袖”匹配的顶部边缘圆,界面上的支持,吸引了两个角度的线两端,借助李尔更多的钢筋连接,插入长钮孔沿着每一行,但只有一边的袖子。该想法是,一个木钉可以很容易地通过扣眼和被保持在袖子内,从而支持被子,尽管略有非常规的形状。最初,袖子以1/8 "的缝线附着在棉被的背面,然后当绑带附着时,将其压得更紧。(顺便说一句,这张照片也展示了我很喜欢的一点,那就是树枝上的“幽灵”树懒,由背上的棉被创造出来的。我非常讲究针线和线轴的搭配,所以形状很容易辨认。)

接下来是装订——我承认我在这里“作弊”了一点,用的是我最喜欢的服装店开襟羊毛衫上的漂亮的海军蓝缎子装订,把它绕在被子的边缘上,把它剪好,然后用这种绿叶装饰的针法固定住。我还在想我是否应该用绿色的线来做这件事,但实际上我喜欢它不会在被子的其他部分引起注意,同时保持“雨林”的主题。

鬼树懒是由星星和彩虹!

Finally, with the binding safely on, I could attach the last three leaves at the bottom (the stitching holding them in place overlaps the binding) and call the piece finished. It has certainly been an interesting journey and the destination, I hope, will not disappoint the recipient! Slothy is on his way to his new home in Canada right now, hopefully he’ll have a swift(!) and comfortable journey. He also allows me to tick off a scrappy milestone myself, given that he is almost entirely made with materials I already had in my stash – the only things I bought specially were the two glow-in-the-dark threads and the binding – and creating that ticker-tape effect sure had me burrowing through the scrap baskets!

周四将与缝线针连接,我可以得到一个欢呼和TGIFF -所有链接在侧边栏。
