embroidered ribbons.

Select the appropriate picture or invent it yourself, move it to the fabric disappearing marker.


 I think I’ll choose a marker holding onto fabric longer. Because the other, rather than to hold onto the fabric night on gabardine disappear already 2.5-3 hours later. And here is a token that should disappear within 72 hours, will last longer on the fabric that will not touch up constantly drawing. Begin embroider any flower in the composition, simple is better – aster bud. It is better to start sewing the top bud. First, a circle straight stitches and tape green tape 6 or 7 mm embroider sepals.


Then tape 3 or 4 mm (color to choose to) embroider bud itself.


Tape slightly twisted or straight stitches fill the place bud.


Green ribbon straight stitches embroider leaves.


Smaller leaves embroider tape used or 7 mm, the leaves are larger and stems can be embroidered belt 12 or 13 mm. embroider aster, like a ball. The first row of stitches slightly twisted ribbon put on top of asters.


Then go down below and embroider petals, which extends into the first row of petals.


Thus, you can put 3-4 rows of petals.


Now go to the largest flower embroidery. We must begin to embroider onto the asters, which are located closer to the outer edge.


Petals are trying to do different length, slightly twist the tape (note: we do not embroider directly from the center of the flower, the petals of the first row does not reach its midway).


But the second row of petals begins to approach the center, and at the same time becoming a bit bulkier and shorter (does not reach the outer edge of the aster).


You can also embroider another 2-4 rows of petals in a circle. The middle of a flower can be filled with air loops of the same tape or embroider her French knotted thread “Iris” (or other non-fine thread).


Adding to the work of the leaves, stems and flowers, if desired, unblown. Job done! Fall is around the corner, and asters will delight us with their beauty, not only in the flowerbeds, but also at home on our picture!
