Cross-stitching by photo

Nowadays, high-tech and continuous automation, handicraft is very, very appreciated. The pictures embroidered with a cross bear warmth and sincerity in themselves. And if these paintings are modernized and some kind of originality is added to them, then the creation turns out to be above all praise. It is about cross stitching on a photograph or picture. Not finished store schemes are taken as a basis, for example, the portrait in the photo, on the basis of which the embroidered picture is made. In order to receive the scheme, it is enough to send a photo of the desired work on a specialized website and convert it into an scheme for embroidery and will be sent by e-mail. You can, of course, make this scheme yourself in a special program, but here you need special knowledge and skills and quite a lot of time. After receiving the scheme, you need to print it.

The next step. Pick up the canvas. To make the portrait more realistic and similar to the original, it is best to choose a canvas from number 18 and above. In this case, the embroidery will be on the canvas No. 18. I stretch the canvas onto the embroidery frame so that there is no sagging.

The next step is the selection of threads. I use DMC floss cotton. The scheme is accompanied by a palette of colors with numbers of skeins of thread. It remains only to buy the necessary colors.

Next I find the approximate center on the canvas and in the diagram. I determine what color to start embroidering. I am threading a needle. The needle should be with a rounded end so as not to tear the canvas. And do the first stitch, securing the thread from the wrong side. The knot is not made, the thread is fixed by itself.

Tighten well so that the thread does not dissolve later.
