Create a textile bracelet with embroidery based on Khokhloma painting

The author: Ural skazy (Julia)

In this master class I want to share with you the process of creating a textile bracelet with embroidery based on the Khokhloma painting. This is my first master class, and therefore it’s very exciting for me, so if at some stage I suddenly miss something or you don’t understand, I promise to tell and add everything in the comments, as well as answer all your questions.

So let's get started.

Probably, there is not a person in our country who would not ever come across khokhloma painting. The idea of ​​creating a textile bracelet based on the Khokhloma mural was born to me right away, it is so bright, original and our “dear” that I certainly wanted to create a bracelet on this topic, at least touching this beauty a little!

The drawing also did not take long to wait, revising the motives and variants of the painting of Khokhloma, I drew a bracelet embroidery scheme, I immediately apologize for the “free apostasy” of the canons of this painting. 🙂

Scheme embroidery bracelet:

Materials needed to make a bracelet

1. As a basis for embroidery bracelet, you can use any thick or duplicated fabric. But I really liked the fabric that is used for upholstering furniture, yes, yes, do not be surprised 🙂 There are many different options, I use a fleecy (velvety to the touch) with a little beautiful texture. It is dense, resistant to abrasion and has proven itself in the embroidery of a bracelet.

2. Threads: cotton (red, black), thin fishing line, kapron 50k (white and beige), muline green PNK them. Kirov 4112, Anchor Lame 303 metallic floss (light gold).

3. Needles for embroidery and beads.

4. Natural silk 100% hand-painted (green and red).

5. Beads: Czech preciosa - 10/0 № 17020, 93170, 46102, green (matte), Toho round 15/0 №22

6. Beads tinted coral.

7. Sintepon.

8. Fabric cotton woven satin weave.

9. Rings metal, with a diameter of 14 mm.

10. Slanting inlay black.

11. Scissors.

12. Embroidery pattern.

And also a sewing machine and a wonderful mood! 🙂

Stage 1. Embroidery

On the line of the bracelet we are laying a basting line (without seam allowances) so that during the whole embroidery process it will not be erased and lost.

Create a "strawberry"

1.A piece of silk measuring 5x8 cm is folded in half and the ends of the silk are assembled in a bun.

2.Apply our bundle to the lower boundary of the intended strawberry ends inward and sew on the border and further (inward) fixing the ends.

3.We turn from the side of the fold line, we also collect it into a bundle and sew at the upper boundary of the planned strawberry, fix it.

4.On the contour of the strawberry we sew our “air bubble” with small stitches 🙂

5.In a chaotic manner, we pierce and sew up places for future beads (strawberry seeds).

6.Into the grooves we create, we sew Toho golden beads with round 15/0.

7.Around the strawberry, along the very edge, we sew the golden mulina with a stalk seam with metallized threads.

Embroider leaf.

1.Outline the line of the sheet on the fabric. I allowed myself the liberty and retreated from the original line of the leaflet, it's hard to "curb" my creative impulses, I wanted to make the leaf more alive and dynamic 🙂 But I made adjustments to the bracelet pattern so that it would be easier for you to navigate with the embroidery (the bracelet scheme attached above) .

2.We embroider a leaf on the planned contour.We introduce the needle to the beginning of the leaf we have planned (from the underside to the face), make a seaming stitch and stitch the stitch along the contour forward. We return the needle to its original position, shifting it slightly over the outline of the sheet. Thus, we make the stitches very tightly to each other, repeating the leaf bends.

3.We make columns of golden beads at the base of the leaf. To do this, we take a thin fishing line, fasten it from the inside out and collect 4 Toho gold beads 15/0. We insert the needle back, but now into the third bead, the fourth remains the lock and we insert the needle into the material at a distance of 2 mm from the initial puncture.

4.In the same way we make different bars, alternating the height and size of the beads. On the second column, 2 Toho golden 15/0 beads were collected and one Czech preciosa 10/0 bead, turned out to be a kind of “fungus” 🙂 And so alternating, filling the base of the leaf.

5.We supplement our posts with single beads, alternating the different sizes 10/0 and 15/0, in chaotic order close and at a distance, completely relying on your sense of harmony.

We sew curls

1.We embroider the bases for our blades of grass and various curls from metallized floss of golden color with a stalk stitch.

2.The curls are done as follows, as the curl increases, I increase the stitches, just as tightly stitching to each other and continue to "twist" the growth of the curl. It turns volumetric curled helix.

3.In the same way we continue other elements of our embroidery from golden threads, according to the picture.

Create sepals from the strawberry

1.We make the central long leaf sepal. To do this, we collect 8 green beads with Czech preciosa 10/0 by the analogy of the columns. Only now we return the needle back to the 7th bead and draw it out of 6, the eighth bead remains the lock. Next, we collect 5 beads and now we enter into the fabric at a distance of 2 mm from the puncture.

2.Making two more leaves on the sides. Now we collect 6 beads, re-insert the needle into 5 beads, collect 4 beads and insert into the fabric 2 mm from the puncture.

3.On the sides we make two more single columns, on the one hand from 3 beads, on the other - from 4.

4.We supplement our sepal with single beads, sewing them on the bottom of the leaves and columns in the form of a triangle.

5.In the same way we create sepals from other strawberries. You can experiment and make different.

Sew berries

1. For berries, I decided to use coral beads. For sewing in this case, I used a thin fishing line. We take one bead of coral and a red bead of Czech preciosa 10/0. Re-insert the needle only into the coral bead, the bead remains a lock.

2. In the same way we add other berries, according to the picture or according to your desire.

3.Add single red beads around coral beads. Thus, we get a scattering of berries.

The final work with embroidery

1.Add the beads (berries) to the twigs from the golden threads, according to the picture.

2.Add a blade of grass from the green floss. First, add longitudinal threads at an angle, for greater volume of grass. Then we sew the satin stitch over, tightly stitching parallel to each other.

3.We continue to embroider in the same way other blade of grass and droplets. Fill the bracelet with green elements, according to the picture or according to your imagination!

4.Alternate between the blades of twigs. We embroider them with stalked seam.

5.Create white flowers. To do this, we take white Czech beads preciosa 10/0 and sew a bead with a simple puncture, it rises on our edge.Next, add in the circle as well 4 white beads. Inside we sew a red bead.

6.Add red beads (berries) on the green stalks.

And voila! Our embroidery is ready for further work! 🙂

Scheduled line cut, on each side of 7 mm.

Stage 2 Assembling a bracelet

1.Cut along the cut line along the perimeter of the entire bracelet.

2.We cut out a detail from the lining fabric, the same size as our main bracelet with seam allowances. And cut out a large part of the synthepium lining about 7 mm on each side. We will cut off the excess.

3.We fasten details of the lining and sintepon with the help of needles and outline the lines of decorative stitching of the lining.

4.We spend both parts on the planned lines.

5.Along the perimeter of the lining we lay a line at a distance of 5 mm from the edge.

6.Cut off the excess padding on the border of the lining fabric.

7.We outline the lines of sewing metal rings. The ringlet should be in the middle of the seam line.

8.To the edge of the main fabric of the bracelet with embroidery sew rings on the intended lines.

9.On the lining we design an arbitrary element of embroidery. We embroider the curl and blade of grass with a stalked seam, as well as on the front side of the bracelet.We use floss threads metallized and green.

10.We connect the details of the lining and the basics of the bracelet with the embroidery face inward and fasten with needles.

11.We stretch parts from three sides at a distance of 7 mm, leaving the bottom side open! We do not forget to make locking seams: at the beginning of the seam 10-15 mm, at the corners just 15 mm in both directions, at the end of the seam.

Attention!In order to avoid injury and distortion of the little rings, we stretch the sides manually, that is, we turn the flywheel without using the bottom pedal! Thus, we feel the rings and if suddenly the needle rests against the ring, then we shift the fabric by 1 mm and so control this important process.

12.We pass a second time on all three sides, without locking seams.

13.Cut off excess lining fabric, should remain 3 mm from the seam.

Attention!On the sides, we cut only the lining fabric very carefully, without touching the main fabric with the rings.

At the corners we cut off at an angle. And from above we cut off both the lining and the main fabric together, it should remain the same 3 mm from the seam.

14.We turn out our bracelet on the front side. In the corners we help push with a pencil or other sharp object, so that the corners we get even and beautiful.

15.The lower edge of the bracelet is fixed with needles and we spread it by 6-7 mm from the edge, we must place the stitching seams on the ends at 10-15 mm.

16.We fasten the edge of the bracelet on three sides, to do this, we take a needle with black threads and sew through small secret stitches through the edge of the bracelet at a distance of 2-3 mm from the edge.

17.Sew on slanting back to the bottom of the bracelet. To do this, attach the jam using needles, from the edges of the bracelet (on the sides) there should be 15 mm of free ends of the oblique bake.

18.We attach it to the bracelet, not forgetting to put the lock stitches.

19.We tuck the free end of the slanting bake inside the bracelet.

20.We bend around the bottom of the bracelet with an oblique bake, we should have a neat corner.

21.Careful small stitches fix the corners and in the same way we sew the oblique bake to the lining.

And voila! The bracelet is ready! Little details left 🙂

We make a reaped ribbon of natural silk for strings. Take a piece of silk measuring 4 x 90 cm when wet and bend it in half for any item you find 🙂 I have a “scrub” turned up 🙂 You can do this on the door handle. And twist it around this object, then fold it again in half and twist again.We get such a wonderful flagellum, leave it to dry.
