Knowing how to do needlework, you can turn ready-made ordinary things into unique ones.
For example, such cute voluminous bunnies can either become an independent picture or decorate with themselves, for example, clothes or any other thing. Meanwhile, to make this wonderful couple, you don't need a lot of experience in embroidery. You just need a desire and a couple of tools and materials.
You will need:
- yarn for crocheting or DMC pearle;
- tapestry needle;
- ordinary needle;
- fabric or canvas;
- synthetic winterizer or other filler
First you need to draw an outline for embroidery. Then we sew the contour with a chain seam with a regular needle. The chain seam is performed in several stages:
- we bring the needle and thread to the front side;
- then we put the thread in a loop and hold it;
- we insert the needle from the face to the wrong side at the site of the previous puncture, i.e. where the working thread comes from;
- finally, direct the needle down and pierce it from the inside out onto the face so that the needle is over the loop.
The result is a loop with a thread in the middle, and the weaving itself resembles a chain or pigtail.
Next, fill the contour with loops, for this we use a tapestry needle. For each finished loop we "catch" a new loop, so we sew the upper ear of the bunny.
In those places where we will have volume, add a loop: for this, we simply stretch the thread from the last to the first loop of the row. Then we sew the thread along this additional thread. This will give us an embroidery that is not attached to the fabric, which can be stuffed. For stuffing we use some kind of filler, for example, synthetic winterizer. We connect the loose row with the stitched contour.
We continue to fill the contour with a chain seam, changing direction from time to time. We sew the back in a zigzag manner, the forehead of the bunny with horizontal lines.
Sew, for example, a round bead in place of the eye, and embroider the nose. Then we sew the cheek with a white thread along an additional thread that is not attached to the fabric. We fill the cheek with padding polyester, connect it to the contour.
We sew the tail with unprinted volumetric loops. Then we cut these loops and additionally fluff the threads so that we get a fluffy pompom. We cut off the excess. In the same "fluffy" way we finish the lower leg and the second ear.
