This week I wanted to make illustrations of the embroidery stitches used on the embellished wool piece I showed recently.
Since I know how to create each stitch with needle and thread, I thought it would be easy enough to draw them........trying to draw them from my mind's "eye" did not really work very well....they just did not look right.
So, here is what I did, as I made each stitch, I drew what I was seeing, one step at a time.
a bullion stitch in progress
was the visual for my drawing
here, all of the steps for that stitch are rendered in pencil.
I did this for each of the different stitches, then scanned my drawings and added text.....voila!....my own illustrations fresh from my printer
