About This Class

Using simple embroidery stitches, discover the Japanese art of sashiko and create beautiful geometric designs. 

Why stitch on card?

Stitching on card is an ideal way to learn as it simplifies the pattern layout and is easier to handle than an embroidery hoop. It also means that you have a piece of art ready to hang or frame easily. 

What will the course cover?

After learning a little of the history of Boro and Sashiko, this course will teach you the techniques needed to make your first simple design.

Hello, I'm Helen. I am an embroidery artist and textile designer and love stitching on card and other upcycled materials.  

Through my creative alter ego of Polly Dextrous, I use my embroidery designs to create unique fabric. 

I love passing on my skills through my kits and workshops as I strongly believe that creativity is empowering and a great way to help people build self confidence and social skills. 

Originally from the UK but now living in rural France I love to mix my english style and tea drinking with a healthy dose of French Joie de Vivre.

Transcripts

1. Welcome: Hi, I'm Helen from Troy Dextrous. It's really great to meet you. I'm really pleased you could join us for this class, which is that she goes stitching on card. I'm an embroidery artist and designer, and if you want to know more about my story and the origins of the name of my bread, you could have a look on my website, which is pointed extras dot com. Where there's also tips for embroidery and other projects on this, This project today is to create a wall hanging using the Japanese and Bordry technique. Sachiko. So who is this class aimed at this class is suitable for all levels. It doesn't matter if you've never picked up a needle and thread before. That's fatso you find. By the time you watch the videos, we'll take you through all the steps needed and you'll be able to create your own stitch work of art. No problem at all. Eso what we go to learn in the class. We're gonna have a look first of all, a little bit about the history because I think it's important and really interesting to learn about techniques, especially embroidery techniques from around the world. So we learn a bit about Machiko, and then I will take you step by step through setting out the card and drawing the pattern on because we have stitching on card. Then we need to make the holes in the patent. So well, you look into the techniques that I used to do that on Ben. We'll look at the the embroidery skills. So the stitching that you need, um, and obviously actually the pattern that we're going to follow to make the to make the design on the other really important thing this class is that I really want everybody to share that work in the gallery. Because for me, as a teacher, the most important thing, really, once I've taught you the techniques and giving you my ideas, I want to see how you take those ideas on that. You could really make a beautiful work of art that's unique to you. So please, please do share your work. It's not in order to judge each other, were there to inspire and be inspired. And as a teacher, that's something that really that makes it all worthwhile for me when I see somebody has taken my idea and brought it and brought it their own personality to that piece of art on. That is absolutely wonderful, and I can't wait to see what you create. So a before we get started, I'll just pop back in a minute and I'll give you a list of the materials that will need to make the project. See you soon. 2. Materials: Okay, so I'm just gonna run quickly through the list of materials that we need for the project. Don't worry. If you don't capture, think it's available down. Download in the notes for the class. Firstly, we need two pieces of card. The ideal thickness is that a similar to a cereal packet. If it's too thick, then it makes it difficult to make the holes and too thin is to marbling. Then we're going to need to download the pattern, which is also in the notes, and make sure you print this out it 100% so that it's the right size. Feel stitching for choosing the thread. I use some silk thread, but normal embroidery Floss is just justus good. Or you can choose any other kind of thread that you have, as long as you might need to use a big and leader with a bigger I the tools you're gonna need to make to make the holes on. I'll explain a bit more detail how he can make that, or you can use a drawing pin or a pair of compasses. You'll also need knifes and scissors on an envelope to press your needle into Lastly, you can download the free Stitching Guide, which is also in the notes. This will give you some more information and stitch guide outfitter stitching on card. 3. History - Boro and Sashiko: before we start stitching. I just like to you to tell you a little bit about the Japanese art of borrow and so she could borrow is a Japanese word that means rags and is used to refer to clothing, which has been patched and repaired out of necessity going back in time. This was a common practice, as close were expensive on, often passed down from generation to generation. Rags and simple stitches were used to patch and reinforce workwear, often with many layers of fabric added over time. Despite being born of necessity, the stitches still did their best to make something beautiful. As living standards improved, such clothing was seen as an embarrassment on most examples were destroyed, meaning that true borrow work is very rare on most things that you see today are actually borrow style it embroidery. So she co is a term for a style of embroidery included that use em bar amending. It also has a much more decorative form, but always using simple stitches to make the patterns. The words Toshiko means little steps in Johnny's. Traditionally, it is stitched using a long needle on white thread on fabric dyed blue with indigo and natural plant die or two styles of Sachiko Moyo's ASCII, which uses patterns made from long lines of running stitches and hitter Musashi, which uses geometric patterns formed from a credible. The patterns are inspired by nature and include form such a braves, bamboo mountains and fish scales. The pattern that we're going to stitch today is an example of this type of sushi. 4. Card preparation 1 - template and pattern: right, So it's time to get started. The first thing we need to do is to prepare the two pieces of card. So I've already cut out smaller square piece. So that's 12 centimeters or just four and 3/4 inches square. And now have the dark piece of this is this is the piece of card I'm going to stitch onto. As you can see, it's just a back of cereal packets, so it doesn't matter, but it's it's strong enough to due to stitch up to and then the blue is going to be the background. So when they're finished, they're gonna be have it like that. But first of all, I'm gonna cut the shape of this to make it so It's like a pendant for the walking. So this is the so we need some scissors, craft knife and a Rudo or some sisters. But I prefer and I forgetting the card, a pencil and some sick. And then this is the This is the file, the patent file that you can download from from the lesson. So, first of all, I'm going to cut out this decision template for the blue card. So I'm just gonna draw around this to get the shape of the card you could you could offer. Just store it if you want, so it's 13 centimeters across the top in 17.5. Down to the point is in the size of 13. So it's a square with an extra point or it, and she's up surviving a five inch square. Then the point is down to 63 quarter inches. So it just control that just out with with the root of a person. If you happy to do that, I just want to show you I'm gonna do it with template provided. Do you make sure when you're printing things out that you've printed or think it 100% of it ? Okay, so with a bit of luck about should shots right, that should fit into the blue card. So to save me cutting, I kind of couldn't fit that into that corner. You can see that's nice and square. What excuse my cutie matter. You can see it's a it's been through the wars, but it's more practical for cutting onto then in the wooden desk. It's so I'm just gonna quickly you're on there with it. So my shop pencil, make sure you hold it so that it doesn't move like that. I'm just drawing on the topside. But my fingers on one of the edge of the paper, just his move. And there we go. So we just need to get along with those two diagonal sides and then across the street side , so I'm gonna cut the straight side first. Now, if you're cutting with a knife and make sure that you've got your ruler on top of the area that you want to keep the good piece so that if you do slip you sleep onto the spare car that you're cutting off and not onto the no onto where you're gonna work. So I find that a bit if you get the edge of the blade and you put it on the top there and then on the bottom there, like you, and then you know that you're gonna be cutting right on the line. So you pushed ice could and it won't go through straight for the first time. Uh, don't just could lightly first time and then with a bit more if it and you can feel when you through because you can feel the math. There we go. I could feel them at now. So the same, then for two, the two diagonals. We're not going to cut right to the edge this time. I'm gonna make sure it's cut into that one. And then the last section. I'm just I laughed when I played, So that's a good tip to make sure that you couldn't nicely on the line to make sure your fingers a well out of the way or see once more for luck. You can hear now that that's come through so they get So that's the piece. That's the beast that will mount the work onto after it. So that's five. The moment we can just put that to the side, you can see from the template there's a a lighter grey line, so that's just to show you whether where the stitching will be mounted on top on then, here there are two crosses to which is where we're gonna make the holes to put their the thread to hang it. So for the moment, we can put that to one side, how we're gonna prepare carts, did you? Because that's going to be stuck on that. We won't see if is there anything on the back? We won't see that eso. In fact, that's aside. That's inside that we need to stick the patent on two. I'm just going to cut the pattern out. It's important to keep the letters that will help us follow the stitching afterwards. And similarly, if you don't, if you haven't printed the pattern after you can't print the pattern out, you can just draw this as a grid. You can either droit onto some square paper. Yes, that's good. It just fits either. Draw on two square paper, in which case you want these air. This is a This is drawn from a square paper, which is half centimeters, so each square each square is about two centimeters, so it's a grid of 10 by 10. So you can either just you square paper or you can just simply draw it with a ruler. Just make sure you keep it nice and square when you're drawing the line so that their nasty vertical and nicely here horizontal. If you want to tip, too. If you want to check that something square. This is a really easy. Simple tip. Just got any old piece of scrap paper and you fold it half. And the point where you folded. If you fall that in half again, this is a bit big re I see. So now that corner there will be perfectly what has already afforded it neatly across there . That corner now is square. So if you want to have a check, it will square corners. All you need is a bit of scrap paper. So I'm just gonna quickly stick that one trying to be sparing with the glue. It only needs to hold really what we're stitching. We don't need lots of lumpy love because that will be a bit ugly and lined up. That's quite mind. Okay, so it's not quite stuck at the edges, but that will be fine as long as it's there. Stays in place while we make the holes and full of the partners. Okay, so we'll be back in a minute to show you how to make the holes in your car. 5. Card preparation 2 - making the holes: right. So now we can make the holes in the card. So in order to do this as well as my cutting mat, have also got in a padded envelope you can see that's been used before its it's full of holes. That just means that when you push through within your shop, um, object you needle or whatever. Uh, it's got to make to go into rather than just hitting something solid on a padded envelope piece. Perfect for that. And then I've got my needle. This is if you're gonna stitch, I recommend using a needle to make the whole slightly larger than the needle that you're gonna stick tree. So that means it could make it easier for this the needle to go through. So if I'm gonna stitch with the 22 then I'd use a 20. Know that strong right 20 stitch with 24. Then I use a 22 to make the holes. But this is a sharp on rather than a blunt ended embroidery needle. Eso I just got This is like little advice that I put mine into. You can just as easily years this one, like I showed in the in the list. Just a cork with a needle if you use a pair of pliers and pushed them I of the needle into the cook that works find, too. So some people say, Oh, it must be boring making a whole batch Find it really therapeutic. It's quite relaxing to sit, so I probably won't show you making all of them. But I'll just show you the first few rows. So all I'm going to do is make a hole that every weathers, every daughter, every point where the dark lines cross so that we think it's too to for 68 10 11 year 11 Across the top, I greeted 11 across the top 11 down the side, so just find the end of the needle and placed on the whole impress. I don't have to press hard. You just need to make sure it goes all the way through. So when we get to the end of the book, Maria, if you turn it over, look, now I can see you've got a a row of holes. Sometimes you might want to go back on. Just make sure it's nice and clean. The whole it depends. A bit on the court to using the cereal packet can be a bit fluffy around the edges, but okay, so I'm just gonna carry on during that until I've completed the whole grade. So I'll be back in a minute to show you what it looks like when it's finished, right? I'm just have nearly finished. I've just got the bottom. The bottom urge you. As you can see, you have to make sure you do all the sides, not just the end of the internal sections. And it's just just do you make sure that your accurate when you're making your holes so that your greed is nice and need to get that will affect your stitching. So there we go. We've got a whole great icon. You can see that That's full of holes. So that's ready for us now to start stitching, which is the fund It 6. Let's get stitching 1 - horizontal rows: right. So now we're ready to start stitching. I've chosen to use this silk thread because you can see it's a colors. Very. And I love this color combination, the orange in the turquoise. And I think that's gonna really nice when it's framed up against the Turk West cart that chosen. So this is just a single single food. You don't need to split it, Um, and it's in the skin. So I'm just gonna show you how I take this cane of this cane. It's a bit fiddly. Six. Lovely when it's like this, so it's got some twist in it. So you just after undo the first goal of twists, okay? And then if you don't here, you can see it's just been knotted to keep it all in place. So if I pull the right Beijing, it's only guaranteed in up to pull the market polos. I should come undone and just to burn through Well, I think. Okay, so they So now we've just got a group of thread. It's probably a good idea to warn that onto a card or something, but I'm lazy and the never border. And then I was, Would it in a mess but was, well, stay without for the moment. So I'm gonna what with a piece of thread that isn't any longer than the length of your arm . I just couldn't hold it in my hand and pull it back the length of my arm and cut people often tempted to work with pieces of thread that too long. And it just means you get in a not your threads much more night likely to tangle and twist . And then that's just a nightmare. So I just wanted to show you need awesome. The bigger the size of the needle to be the number this smaller, the needle. So these two, this one here is 22 on this one, the smaller fine and one is a 24. So this it would be the size that I used to make the holes on. This is a silent go to used to situate. Okay, so let me just show you show you a trick threading a needle. See if this works because I'm not good. My glasses on service interior. This works. So I've got the thread in between my thumb and my first finger. So there's just a tiny, tiny bit of it showing Can you see that? Just little tiny flat end. And then if I pushed the needle down to the thread and pitch it, pull Oh, wow, It worked First time. Normally, I have to do several takes on that. So there you go. 30 people will get stressed about three needles, but it normally nine times out of 10. That works a treat. So we've got our thread. We've got a card and you can tie knot in the end if you want. But when I'm working on card, normally I just use a bit of tape just to hold the end in place. Once I got a few stitches. Sometimes I am. Sometimes I took it underneath. But if you just just pull it, push it through both starting this top corner and we'll stick that down and then I'll be back to show. You have to make sure a slightly big too big a piece of tape. Really? Because I don't want to cover any of the holes because settlement my needle sticky. So just put that across there, so that should be fine. Okay, So threaded Needle straight ID calls ready. We're ready to go 7. Let's get stitching 2 - changing thread: Okay, so let me just explain how the pattern works. You can see on the grid that we've got. Okay, they got letters, A's and B's so they alternate. So a b a b a b down there across the rows and a b a b across further the columns. And with that she cope, Um, you stitch, you stitch all of the horizontal, and then you come back and stitch all of Vettel's while they're there and it doesn't matter , but you don't you don't stitch one. You don't really wants to cheer. And once it's there that it's okay. So, first for we're going to stitch across here, we're going to do a runny such, which is very the easiest sits you can possibly do as you can see the threads already on the right side of Carter. This is the right side and this is the wrong side. So this is the bit that will be You won't see when it's finished. So all I have to do now is go across and down that hold it. Police. We make sure it's all through and all the threads onto the other side and super easy. All we do now is following the same following the same road. We go into the next hole put away through to the other side so you can see once you get the hang of 80 you'll be able to gauge where that with holes are without having to keep turning your boobs drop a needle, turning the car backwards in fort lips. No, tripod. This is going really well. There we go. So what we end up is a row of stitches with gaps in between. So that's just a running stitch. Super easy. Now when we get 10 either I'm not gonna come back up here because the next ditch we make will be on the room underneath, so I'm gonna turn this over, and so that's in a row. So there's a a stitch from the corner. Now the be ro is gonna be alternate. So on this where? Here. We've got a stitch stitch Stitch Gap Stitch, Gap, Stitch, Gap underneath. We're gonna have stitch, cap, stitch, cap So that it it alternates between the two. I'm going to stop, go from this end and again start in that home. Look, you can see that I've managed to get a Not normal. You're not like that. Well, you need to do is just put your needle into the loop and pull one of the ends. That one look, Then you can see it will put it will disappear until it gets to the end. Take your needle out and pull both sides and it will disappear. If you ever do get a really horrible Not then the beauty of Sichuan caught is you can just get your thread through to the back, uh, and cut the end and stick it and start again. So we're going to do exactly the same running stitches. But as you can see now that they alternate with the rope above again, it's just cut on the corner. So just pull up free. And now we can start to see the different colors. Is the threat changes along? This is lovely. I love this silk thread. It's hand dyed, and so you get really beautiful colors. Okay, so now we have two hours. This isn't a row and a fever. So the next one we will do be a beats a be all the way down to the end of the card. Don't worry. If you think what can't see the pattern, that's fine. You don't start to see the pattern until you start to stitch the rose after the column. Sorry. So we're gonna finish all of the horizontal rows, and then we're going to stitch the vertical columns, so I'll be back in a minute when I got to the end. 8. Let's get stitching 3 - vertical columns: all right. I'm just popping back to just to show you now because you can see I'm getting towards the end of my thread show. I'll show you what I'm gonna do are just do another couple of stitches. I'm gonna need to be set one, I reckon. Probably another two or three depends home. That's probably I could probably get another stitch out there if I was better. Starts to get benefit Lee. So all I do now he's got another piece of my tape. And again, make sure don't stick it across the holes, but you can stick it across a bit you've already stitched. That won't matter. So take the needle off stick to take them. Make sure it's nice in the first on. Just could trim it and then do the same as at the start. And cut another piece of thread length of my arm. Friedman Needle. See if it works again. This time the chances are that as it worked first time last time, you don't know. Oh yes. There you go. Perfect. My own. And then again, if I'm If I'm from I have about this, I can't take that under the other piece of threat to on the other piece of tape. Sorry. So that both ends a court under the same piece of tape, makes even neater. And then I'm ready to start again in the next hole along dubstep et. 9. Let's get stitching 4 - correcting a mistake: Okay, so now you can see I've completed all of the murders. And don't worry, don't worry. There's a hole at the empty hole at the end of each row. That doesn't matter. As soon as we start doing the right at the end of each yes row, getting computer version columns at the end of each row. There's a whole but don't worry, cause as soon as we start putting in the columns, we'll need to use those holes in their Philip. I think it looks quite nice already. I really like the way that the color fairies, but you can use it with single color thread. Or you could always do one color for the horizontal, more color for the vertical or the same color on a contrast in background. That's up to you. That's what I want to be able. Teoh. I'm looking forward to seeing how you interpret the design when you do your own and share them in the gathering. So now I finished doing that horizontal rows, and I'm going to work up the first vertical column. So I'm gonna start in this next to all this time, I'm going to go in the hole. But at the end of the room. And even either you can work with your car like that, we can just turn it around and work the same way she is. If you were working horizontal worse, so you can see now I'm going to go exactly the same. Going to start in the corner for this road and then the next Roble start from the second stitch into again. We've got a B A B rose. So the aero start in the far left hand hole on the B start in the second hole in from the edge. So again the back of the same line of running stitch. So with a stitch in the gap vestige and again. But now you can see that the new stitches combining with that wants from before and we're starting to get the pattern. This is really the beautif says she goes into that such simple stitches. And then just in different clever combinations, you can get really lovely geometric designs. Okay, so now I'm gonna move down to there line underneath. Come up in that home On what? The same backwards stitch. Thank you. Switch one of my on the on there hostage and they get when you can see we're starting to get this exact pattern falling. So I'll be back in a minute and show you what it's like when it's all finished. I just wanted to quickly show you what might happen if you, uh, making mistake. You can see here is that it is deliberately but just so just just to show you, you can see where was all along here. We've got this nice, continuous exact starting to form here. I went into the wrong hole and I've got two gaps here and then sort of like her a little like a little caterpillar or inchworm or something. So that's always see, that's wrong. The state should have been here, and I've made the stitch here. So just take my needle out, used the I to pull thread through that side and then back through that side. And then once I threaded the needle back up, I could carry on on that and go back and carry on where I should have gone. What? She's into this ditch here. So it's not No, no drama, no panic. If you make a mistake, it's easy enough to take the threat out and start again. Go back 10. Finishing your project: right. So we got the blue car that we could hurt earlier in the stitch piece, and you can see that should just fit. No, Honestly, Okay. And I'm just going to use some double sided tape, these little things to stick that down you could use just we could use stick glue as well, but it doesn't want to be anything that makes it wet. If you get the card west on the thread What? It's gonna walk. So I just put a few of these too many house, but one of the sides to this Has it added benefit of helping that keeping in the year loose . Fritz? Yeah. Just pill wears off. It just couldn't find that up. Sit down. You might want to turn over onto the back and give it a really good press that you don't damage the stitches. So all that remains. Now, I'm just going to make a hole in each corner, all right? And then we're gonna put it on another thread toe. Hank it just find my never looked back on my border. Now the world card. There are holes marked from the patron on the template, but I'm just going to use. I'm just gonna judge it from the stitching just so that it's even so I'm gonna aim for a point which is in cognitive minute and similarly into this corner here. So you could always measure it. Yeah. Don't forget it. The French know peace. Thank you. So I would hold each You could make a bigger hole and put a thicker thread. But I'm just going to use this thread that I've got leftover cause I reckon that's probably a good good length by the time it's gone around the back. And so I'm going to thread from the back the front in the first home. Make sure that Just leave the tail loose from the front to the back in the second home. Make sure pull this through groups. Here we go. And then I'm going to take the needle out. Tie those. I'm just gonna just pull this. So I got it. I wanted to point to hang about like that. So about as we about by centimeters each signed a couple of inches each side, and then you can either make it not all. I'm just gonna put a bit of tape Whether to ends cross. Oops, that's already has put that sweet disease. We can't say it, cause that's gonna support everything, right, that's fine. I think that tidy. And there we go. We got that thread to hang it from and I can hang it. I'll show you in it going and hanging up again. There was plenty of opportunity to make this. Add your own ideas. Either use a different thread, a thicker thread. Maybe you could plaque the threads to make it thicker. Or you could make it punch another hole at the bottom of make a tassel or had some stitches around the edge of the blue car. There's all sorts of different things that you can do to make the design really euro. I want to show you now what that looks like, finished and hanging. 11. Bonus projects and conclusion: So here we go. Look, I've put my wall hanging up on the wall. I've just used a pin, Uh, because the picture was a big, big and ugly, I always could use a piece of tape or something. And then we go Look, you can see a nice Dagnall button on the card. So you're pleased with your work. That's always really nice to have made something in hand. Get and be proud. But you've made that. Okay, So I just wanted to put back with a couple of bonus ideas to show you here is the wall hanging that were made. And here you can see it. I've made a little gift tag which you could use for birthday card. So I've just used exactly the same Patton. But I've used a grade, which was I consider grid, which is half the size. So instead of making holes over centimeter and every I've made a whole every every harvest centimeters, so every it is quarter finish. Maybe. Let me just check. Yeah, about every sly Yes, and 1/4 image. So it just makes a really cute little Patton. So I made that up as a gift tag of just stuck a piece of paper on the back to write the greeting on. That's just a piece of recycled envelopes so it could. Projects like this are a great way to use up the leftover bits and pieces and little bit of ribbon. This is a ribbon on it cut from a T shirt cause they just deny me the ones that they put insurance to hang them up. So I've got out and use that so I can use that to say to make some kid from on this one. Look, this is uh oh, yeah, Sorry. I forgot to say this one I stitched directly onto the larger piece of card and then stiff paper is the backing. And this time I just stitched onto the square, amounted it onto another square to get a contrast. And I've mounted it on the front of my notebook. Said that now I have a a nice book that I can write down my ideas for a new project. OK, it So I hope I hope you found that useful. As you can see, the the the only limit to what you can do with these ideas is your imagination. But those are all three different ways to use the same pattern to make some different toe different things. Hi.
