Embroidery tools and materials

To create masterpieces and original gifts for the New Year you will need:

  • natural fabric slightly larger than the future product (so that later it would be possible to process the edge: hem or make a fringe). For tablecloths, use linen or a mixture of linen and cotton. The fabric for New Year's embroidery must first be washed and ironed, or decathrated - steamed and ironed. If a decorative panel is embroidered, you can use the canvas. There is now a plastic canvas available for sale that does not need to be hooped, making the creative process quick and easy;
  • hoop for stretching the fabric. They can be wooden or plastic, it doesn't matter;
  • threads - special for embroidery "mulina", woolen or cotton. For decoration, use yarn with lurex;
  • sharp scissors with short blades to make it easy to cut threads or undo bad stitches;
  • needles - better with a large eye to facilitate the threading process.

The most important thing, perhaps, in New Year's embroidery is inspiration and the desire to create!


How to take care of the finished Christmas product

Steam the finished embroidery, iron it from the wrong side. If you are embroidering a utilitarian product, i.e. you will use it in everyday life, remember a few simple tips on how to keep the embroidery bright and colorful.

  1. Wash embroidered tablecloths and napkins by hand or in the machine on a delicate cycle (cold water) with a detergent for colored laundry.
  2. Laundered item dry flat.
  3. Iron, without waiting for complete drying, from the wrong side.
  4. Store folded neatly to avoid moisture.

Christmas embroidery is a way to creatively spend winter time creating wonderful handmade gifts for loved ones or your own home! Happy New Year and happy crafting!
