How to secure the thread?
In the process of creating such a beautiful hand-made miracle - cross-stitch, how to fasten a thread is the main issue. Indeed, in this case, in no case, you can not do nodules on the fabric! True, there is one exception to the generally accepted rules - isolated crosses. What knots can harm embroidery?
- Bumps on the surface of the work arise because of the nodules.
- Often during embroidery the thread clings to the knots.
- Nodules - the cause of tissue deformation.
- The presence of nodules makes it difficult to disentangle the thread with errors.
- Nodules on the purl fabric make it untidy. The beautiful appearance of the product depends largely on the neat seamy side - do not forget about it.
- Nodules tend to decouple during washing.
How to fasten the thread: instructions
The loop method is the most economical. But, it is applied only when an even amount of fibers is used for embroidery. Using a thread in two additions, we take a single thread, but its length should be 2 times longer than the length you used to embroider. We fold the thread in half.We insert the thread into the needle with the trimmed tips in the eyelet. In the place where you plan to start embroidering, we pierce the fabric with the purl on the front side with a needle and draw out almost the entire thread, with the exception of the loop. Insert the needle into our eyelet after inserting the needle back to the wrong side. Carefully tighten the loop.
You can embroider in completely different ways. For example, if you embroider with an odd number of threads, you can use the following methods:
- Nozelkova method. Step back a couple of centimeters from the place where you plan to do the first stitch. On the surface of our fabric we leave the end of the thread. You need to carefully position the thread under the fabric so that the new stitches cover the thread with you. Having made several such stitches, we pull out, the end of the thread, unnecessary to us, to the other side. If necessary, you can skip it for stitches or simply cut with scissors.
- With a node, but without a node. This method has similarities with the above. But it also has one significant difference: if your thread often escapes the free end of a thread, and it is hard for you to leave it on the surface, then you just need to tie a knot on the tip.Its action equates to an anchor. Next, make a couple of stitches and remove the knot. Then, if necessary, the thread is hidden under the stitches.
- No knot with knot out. This method has one difference from the previously described. The end of the thread, which serves as an anchor, where we tie a knot, must be fastened so that the thread is not covered by new stitches. After completing the required amount, cut the anchor. The end of the thread that remains is hidden on the reversal side of our product under the stitches. Using this option gives you the opportunity to freely choose the path of embroidery.
- Method "under the stitches." You have already sewn a few lines and they are close to the place where you plan to fasten the thread, in this case we skip the thread under 4-5 stitches on the wrong side of the work. The thread can be fastened by overlapping the thread around the first or second stitch.
Now you know how to fix the thread on embroidery without difficulty! As you can see, this is not difficult and does not require special skills. Good luck!
