In this part, I thought, partly to show you how easy it is to make a template for a "Bib Necklace" when, as in this case, you have loose parts that you place on top, and after them "draw a new pattern".
Then I thought I'd show you how to basically do "all designs" free standing - well not really, but all that have a fill pattern.
But we start with the template. I took a round cork trivet that was a little more than 18 cm in diameter. A little too much because I already tried but we’ll fix that.
I put it on a A4 sheet of paper and draw around with a pen.
Here you see roundel.
I mark a line along the outer edge and is about 15 mm.
This semicircle will then be lengthened 2-3 cm. This is because we will then have something to attach the ribbons to which we should tie the necklace around the neck with. In the end this part might not be that long but it is easier to cut off than add. Cut out this semicircle and "try it" around the neckline so that it fits you. But we should not place objects higher up than where we left off.
This simple template we can then dress with circles or whatever we want to build up to. Here are just a simple example. But more on that in the next part of this tutorial.
Nu ska vi ägna oss åt att brodera ”prickar/cirklar” så att de blir fristående. Hemligheten är att brodera på ett par lager organza. Nu hade jag svart organza hemma men egentligen spelar inte färgen så stor roll och broderierna är ”heltäckande”. Man ”bränner bort" kanterna när de är klara.
Now we will devote ourselves to embroider "dots/circles" so that they become free standing. The secret is to embroider on a couple of layers of organza. Now I had black organza at home but the color really doesn't matter so much if the embroideries are filled. When they're done you "burn away” the organza along the edges.
In my next post we’ll comple “the manufacturing” of the necklace. In that part we will use the template we've done and the "dots/circles" we made.
