Embroidery hoop art

Every needle knows that when the next job is over and the photo is completed, it’s time to think about how to decorate the embroidery. If we are talking about the shape of the embroidery frame, then its choice usually takes into account the shape of embroidery itself: the round work will look great in a round baguette, made in a rectangular shape with a rectangular shape. But if the shape of the frame is not so clearly determined, then how to choose the right color? There is no universal recipe because each embroidered photo is individual, so only general recommendations can be made on this subject. You can select the shade frame that is most commonly found in embroidery or shade by using the most invisible and little used color.

The design of embroidery is not as simple a job as it seems at first glance. If you take into account a combination of storylines and style of its scope: embroidery on Japanese painting will look perfect bamboo-fenced, icon-better framed by a precious tree forest landscape – walnut-style. Unfortunately, embroiderers, choosing an original finished frame are very limited, often they are represented only by traditional forms and shades, so finding the right is sometimes quite difficult. Often, for embroidery with uncomplicated graphics, so-called “flexible hoops” are used, reminiscent of conventional hoops. In this frame, the hoop outer ring is made of special elastic material, and instead has a lag screw hole for which at the end of the working frame.


Embroidery in a baguette in some cases occurs immediately, but sometimes place a special card – “pas-partes” between the picture and the frame. You can do it yourself, for this purpose a hole is cut into color paper that repeats the shape of the embroidered photo. Proper matching of the passe-part can have a great impact on the overall look of the job.

Embroidery design can be a very interesting experiment if you try different combinations of picture nuances, passages and frames. However, the baguette or the pastel should not overshadow the picture. The main thing – the merits of the job itself – and the embroidery design should by no means play an important role here.


Regarding the use of glass in the design of work, there may also be options. Of course, when using glass, embroidery loses little in terms of texture and volume, but if it is planned to be exposed, then the glass can not be released. To date, the baguette workshops offer several varieties of glass: plain, mat, museum and wreath.

A frame is a tool that greatly facilitates the work of embroidery, especially when you have not yet mastered it. They are hoops in which the fabric is put and tense, which allows you to embroider more easily. You can buy it made but also make your own without complications. The first thing that you must have clear is the size that your frame will have. There is no limit, as long as you can hold it in the assembly you can use any size. Look for round frames and objects that are similar in size to the one you want for your frame. Cut the object to a width that is manageable, it should be no wider than 5 cm to be able to hold it easily and put your hand when embroidering. The material can be wood, PVC, metal … whatever you want.

Place the fabric on the frame, no matter the size of the final design, the fabric must be large enough to hang at least 2-3 cm on the sides. Now you have to pull the embroidery fabric towards the sides of the frame with your fingers and hold it with an elastic or elastic band that is big. The band is ideal for small-sized racks, such as the lid of a tin can. If you have a bigger one, the best thing then is to use a piece of plastic and hold it well to get the same results as with the band. Once you have placed the fabric and it is tight, you can start embroidering. Use the left hand to hold the frame and the right hand to handle the needle and pass it up and down according to the points you are giving.
