Embroidered points are numerous and many times, it's time to start working on our embroidery, we find it difficult to choose the most "suitable" or one that will result in a most beautiful effect. The same figure embroidered with different points can result in very different, also Visual effects that can enhance more or less your work.

A very useful practice is to make a "showcase" of points, which you can then always consult to better understand how to translate the outcome of a given point. You can start by making those points you already know well and every time I learn a new go adding to your "showcase". I want to invite them (the) to create your own "showcase" of points with me.

Although the number of stitches of embroidery be quite high (add up to these changes in points) it is possible to group them, essentially, in points of outline, fill, overhand knot, node, and compounds.

Today we will dedicate this article to some boundary points, specifically the points behind, which are characterized by being worked back always "behind" in point.

NOTE: for these points have a harmonious aspect, try to make them the same length! And not very large because they tend to be lax.

In this sample (left to right) are: points behind simple, Pekingese, interlaced, simple flower, party (or split) and zigzag (asna).

 

POINT BEHIND (single)

Let's start with the simple back stitch. This point is usually used to circumvent figures or do lines and is so used in embroidery as in the seam. It's usually worked from right to left (if the right is your dominant hand).

Procedure:

  • Please leave the line where you want to start (1).
  • Stick the needle in the cloth a few millimeters ahead (2) and leave a few millimetres more behind (3).
  • Done the first point, repeat these steps for the following points, returning always to the hole left by the previous point.

The point behind simple also serves as a base for other decorative stitches as the Pekingese and the Interlaced simple Point.

Procedure for the Pekingese point:

  • Make a baselined in point behind simple.
  • Stick the needle into cloth, in the same spot where he finished the previous baseline and pass the needle under the second point behind (the baseline)-from the ground up.
  • Bring the needle back and pass under the first point behind (the baseline) but this time in the opposite direction-from top to bottom. In this last step, make sure that the wire passes over the previous loop.
  • Return to repeat the steps until the end.

 

Procedure for the interlaced point (simple):

  • Make a baselined in point behind simple.
  • Stick the needle into cloth, in the same spot where he finished the previous baseline and pass the needle under the first point behind (the baseline)-in the direction you prefer.
  • Then, make it pass under the second point behind (the baseline) but this time in the opposite direction that you chose previously.
  • Return to repeat the steps until the end.

Note: this point is called interlaced simple because only intertwines the wire in one direction (e.g., left to right). If you want to vote to entwine the wire in the opposite direction, this point will be called interlaced double point.

 

FLOWER FOOT POINT

This point is more used to make outlines. Presented with a visual effect "twisted" like a rope. Is worked, usually from left to right (if the right is your dominant hand).

Procedure:

  • Please leave the line where you want to start (1).
  • Stick the needle in the cloth a few millimeters ahead (2), so that you can make out the needle into the space between this point.
  • Do, so leave the needle in the middle (3) of the space left by the previous point and pull gently the top wire of the same point.
  • Done the first point, repeat these steps for the following points, returning always to the hole left by the previous point.

 

POINT ADVANTAGE (or Split)

This point also, usually used for contours but can be applied also to fills.

Procedure: run mode this item is the same as the procedure for the flower foot point, just being different the opening a "crack" on the wire, each time I go back with the needle.

Note: try to evenly distribute the wire when you open the "crack".

 

POINT ZIGZAG (Asna)

This point is usually worked in a bar between two parallel bars. The zigzag stitch is a essentially a decorative point.

Procedure:

  • Please leave the line where you want to start (1).
  • Stick the needle in the cloth a few millimeters ahead (2), so that you can make out the needle into the space between this point.
  • Do, so leave the needle in the middle (3) of the space left by the previous point and pull gently the top wire of the same point.
  • Done the first point, take the wire top bar, where +/-in the middle of where will form a new point, and then stick the needle (4), making out a few mm further back (5).
  • Then, finish the point and stick the needle a few millimeters ahead (6).
  • Return to repeat these steps for the following points.

 

I hope you enjoy these points of embroidery and return to continue with our samples of points.

Good Embroidery!
