Floor Giebels

Embroidery Artist


Hi, my name is Floor and I'm a Dutch embroidery artist living in The Netherlands.

Originally from a design background, I found my artistic freedom and expression through the more traditional art of embroidery. Entirely self-taught, I started my journey in 2016 and am continually learning new skills and applying them to my work. I also like to explore the boundaries of traditional hand embroidery by creating some pieces as mixed media, to contrast and compliment the thread itself. 

I have found that embroidery has led me to explore the textures present in the world around me - living on the coast, the beautiful beaches, scenery and animals constantly offer me inspiration for new projects. One of my favorite topics to explore in my pieces is the interplay b... See full profile

1. Embroidery Pattern: welcome to how to make an embroidered panel for at sea. My name is floor cables, and I'm self salt in body orders. In this class, I'm going to guide you step by step on how to make it in border about it, that you can sell a Nazi. It does not matter if you don't have any illustration skills or illustration software. I'm going to show you where you can get inspiration for your pattern and some very handy tips that will save you a lot off work for the class project. I made a worksheet where you can download videos and as stitch illustrations that you can use in your own embroidery patterns. This class is for anyone who wants to create a passive income through embroidery patterns. Maybe you on illustrator. I also want to some boarding patterns well, but this guide you know exactly what it takes to make a good and border you better than anyone can use 2. Project section: before we start with the actual course, I want to show you the work she that I made for this class and this foul, you can find all the websites I mentioned any class and also some tools that you are free to use for your own M border with Pattern. I have video files for different stitches and also a written guide with illustrations. You can use them in any way you like for your own M border pattern, and you don't need to credit me for this for the class project. I would like you to try and make an outline for your embroidery pattern with pen and paper or illustration tool that you like to use. It would be really fun to see all your ideas in a project section and see what everyone comes up with. 3. Pattern inspiration and resources: So in this part of the class, I'm going to talk about how to get inspiration for your patterns and also how to get copyright free images that you can use as a tracing imagery pattern, the stuff that I usually use if I want to make it pattern. If I use books or other reference and I usually go for coloring books, there are a great way to look at. Resource is to try to find your style, to try to find images that you like. What I like to do is I like to look at them and makes a match. So not copying birth, say, because you know that's not very creative, and it's also you have copyright that you deal with. So what I'd like to do is I like to take some elements off one thing and take another element of another thing we can do instead is you can, for instance, what you can do. She can take this element like I really like this idea off having a man, animal head and a normal person's body, but you can take the person's body and create a different head on it, and if you copy that you can do that makes a match. This is my ultimate favorite. I really like this one. It's got vocal apologize. I think if you just look on Google and Bird Paradise because this is a Dutch run, but I think it's, um, it's translated from English, so it's from Daisy Fletcher. So it's originally in English book, but so many amazing illustrations. Hey, have some great reference points for color. I mean, I love it and something that I also really love is this. I just found it somewhere on what we haven't Holling Goldmark, lads. It's kind of like our eBay a shopper. People sell secondhand stuff. What is also really good ideas to do is go to truth shops and look at magazines, old magazines. So this is like a magazine from the 19 eighties. There's so many cute things to look at, and when I was looking at this one, I found some inspiration. First thing that really foot was a good inspiration. Waas this I was really loving the leaves here, so that is something that I will keep your mind on. Like are really love the color combinations of here because I think color combinations are also big part of IMB ordinary. What works, especially patterns now. This is where I found my inspiration for my pattern because I don't want to do this. I really love believes, the color combination off the leaves. I think that's very, very pretty. And it's also a good way for me to show you guys how to create a pattern. It's also a little bit with threat basics who not only like blocks of color, which I think is maybe more easier to explain on how to make a pattern. And if you have things are a little bit more complicated. So I definitely want to include this in my pattern. So I'm gonna keep that in mind and keep it and leave that to decide something that is also really good. That looking for inspiration is looking at other illustrators. So what I usually do to get inspiration is also look at these kind of books and just flip around them and see what kind of cell you like. I mean, so I think this is definitely something. I want a bookmark in case I want to use it and not a great source is free. Big free bake is a website where you can get free images. Free resource is while I'm now making this class, it is literally January 2 1st 2020 So everything will. Not everything but a lot will be well. Actually, almost everything will be related to New years or so Christmas. But we can also just put in a search term that we want so hand drawn. Now you can have a look at once. See, this is really pretty. Okay, so that's for instance. Look at this. We're going to download it so he have to download option. So you're downloading a resource created by free pick. So if you're using it for the web, you can put in an etc. They have a description where you can put in your your links so you can download this link and you can put it in your at Cesar. You covered for all the copyrights. Sorry, downloading it, and we're gonna open it on here. You see that? It's also a yea beck. So in this picture, you do have to work around a bit because it has designed by free big and I don't know if you wanna have this in it, If you don't want to have this in it, then you can work around it with tracing image. Or you can have lots of Actually, you can get rid of anything and go toe to brush. And not a great way to get free images and to mix a match. It's kind of like a collage system, and what you can do is you can create your own remixes. I could see here you will get a folder filled with difference kind of top spends hair do's and also some accessories. Now, what you're gonna do is you're gonna get the library. It's a dropbox, and with the drop bugs, you can just download it already did. Said already played around with it, and I'm gonna show you how you can work with it. So first, what you see is that we're going to get the remixes, everything that you can mix a match and we want to go up two pages and create a new page. So here we have our new page. Um, then we can go to sticker sheets and here we have everything that you can use. But now We're gonna look at the images off the illustrations here, so here we can copy it and then we go back to your own page and pace. It's and we can do that with everything. American look for its up, and we can make a really nice image like this, and you can just go in and click on the hair and turn it into every color that you want so you can change it up the way you want every color you can change. Now, if you're happy with your image, you want to save it. They make sure that you select everything and you group the layers so that it's one image and then you can export it and you can use it as a P and G or a J peg or SVG. And that's also something you can use. This is just a little tip, and it's fun to mix. So now we had a look at Hugh Manes and I were gonna go over to Ben's arrests and see how we can create some inspiration from there. If you already have a good sense of what you want to do than Pinterest is a great way to get inspiration here. You see my board and I'm gonna first show you some off my inspirations. And the pieces I made that were inspired by that image. Um, for instance, this image I wanted Teoh make a bird of paradise flower, but I wanted to use a lot of colors. So what I did is that I put in the search term embroidery with lots of colors, needle painting colors And after a lot of clicking, I came on in this picture and of course I went back and I saw all these pictures and I saw the color combinations which inspired me having Lee to make this piece. So you really see that I used the colors from this piece. It usually starts with an idea that you have here. You can see this piece and you can see this piece that I made and how I got inspired. Usually I have an idea in my mind, I'm like, Oh, well, this is what I really want to do. Let's find some search terms that will help me find the right image. And then you see my piece and then you see how my pieces inspired by this bees. And I think that happens to a lot of artists. You just get inspired by other things and you start looking for things. And now we're going back to our Pletz and see where it all started. So in search terms, I put in blends inspiration. And then I came to dis, and I was really interested in this picture because it was really similar to, uh, pattern that we found in the book in the magazine. So I wanted to see if I could go further on that. And if there's something that I can do it at, I was really liking these colors. But you know how it happens on pit interests. I clicked on this, and then I went traditions like I really liked the pink with the dark pink and the green, a dark green, And then this kind of like bluish gray age, so that my mind is kind of like set on that like, Oh, yes, I really like that. And then I see more images. That kind of like confirmed my own mind that I really like it and that I wanna do that. And from there on on, I'm thinking to myself. I want to make a plants with leaves. So But eventually I came to this one, and then from there. So what happens? I was looking at this plans illustration, and then I went onto this illustration. So this is an illustration that I end up using. Um, we're gonna trace it, but we are gonna change it because I liked overall simplistic look of it, but I don't want to copy it, which is very important to me. But what I do want to do is when I'm gonna put it in my instagram, and I'm gonna put the color study in because it's hers. And I'm going to say that it's inspired by her. Okay, so let's save this picture, and we're gonna trace it on the computer 4. Creating the tracing image: in this part of the class, we're going to use the inspiration that we found previously and turn it into its racing pattern. We're going to use tracing paper and can fit for that. Okay, So you should image that I have that I, um going to use for tracing is the image that I found on Pincer is, but I'm not wanna exactly copy it. So we're are going to make We are gonna put our own feel to it. And what we're getting used for it. It is tracing paper. I don't really use it. Use it. So I like to cut it in pieces, so I don't actually use the whole thing. And what I first I'm gonna use it with is a pencil. So we're gonna skillet to the size that we want. Nothing. This is a good sites. I'm gonna take my tracing paper. So what I did is I went over to initial drawing and I went over it with another tracing paper and then maybe made it a little bit more my own. I really like how the this part came out, and now I'm going to use a black bed and just go over it. Is he pattern from the beginning that I really liked. So I'm going to think about how I'm gonna incorporate dat and is drawing. And I think it would be really cool if let me see if this will be another color. I figured it would be really cool if I leave, which open here, too. Said it's a different color a year and here and then because this belief is going up and these leaves are going down showing dis leave. I'm not going to do the pattern off the leaves, but in this, I'm going to do it. So these are old way going down. I can always change it later if I'm actually making the bat earn and I'm really embroidering it. I can always change it up. It doesn't have to be like a fool thing. Now you have to have a different pattern off what they're going to read from an apartment that they're gonna trace from. So this is gonna be the pattern that they're gonna trace from now has a large saying. What we want to do is you're gonna trace with white paper. Where I'm gonna do is I'm gonna attach it to the window so I can trace over it. So this is the picture that I trace on a normal piece of white paper that's race it on my window with the tracing paper and a normal paper over it. And this is the result. I just made a picture with my phone from This is now also, um, screen recording from my phone. And we're gonna go drood app. An app that that we're gonna use this snap seed. So I'm going to go to snap seed. So here we have the image. I'm gonna go to Jules and a phrase gonna crop it, and I'm going to go to the tree, too, And I'm gonna make IDs like this. I'm gonna hit. Okay, Then I'm going to go again to tools and I'm gonna go to looks. And if you scroll all the way to decide, you see here Ah, filter or looked a called silhouette. Click on that. And then you see that the backgrounds goes completely white, and that's what we really want. Sir, I'm gonna hit. Okay. Okay. So what I'm gonna do is I'm gonna export it. I'm going to share it and I'm gonna send it to my Gmail. Your have to picture that I opened up for my Gmail that I sent to myself. Now you have two options. You have the option to leave it like this if you're a way better drawing to me. But if you really good at a steady hands and you're good at with a fine liner to go over your pencil drawing, I suggest you just keep it this way. If you're not confident with how it looks, what you can do, you can go to a Web site called Fiverr. You could see five or with two R's dot com, so you can go to graphics and design. And they do have a section called Sector Tracing. How it works is you just you join, you pay with paper. You can see here how much it calls citizens perfect. I would have virtue drawings of ex urban in 12 hours. This is really good. I think this is something that is really easy to do. You know, you can also see the images that he did. So yeah, this is something I would advise to do if you're not really confident which you're drawing . So you have your image now and you wanna have it in an A four documents and a furred argument is really handy because that means that people can have to chance to print it out and use it. And that way, if they want to, The other thing, which is really handy about a camp A pdf is that you can put in links that are clickable. So it's an interactive document, which means that if you have links to, maybe you wanna have a link to your own and seashore, maybe you sell treads or maybe you sell other stuff. You can put those links in there. Two people can click on it. And so we're gonna go to a for document, so the rug is gonna make it blank. What you're gonna do is you're gonna go to elements and we're going to put in here circle, and we're gonna use the one with a very thin line. Well, so here this one, and we're gonna make it. So now you can resize it. So this is gonna be the format of your hoop. My hope. Size is 17 and 1/2 sensi meter Okay, Well, four is also good enough. And I want us to be black just because I think it's prettier. And then I'm gonna go to my uploads and I'm going to go to my image and I'm gonna position that backwards. So it's in the circle now. You can make it as big and as long as you want, you can work around a little bit. I think this is really good. So done. It's really in the middle, and you can go to text. I'm put in tracing image, Sergen Input Plus and you can always, you know, play around. But where you wanna have your first image? Because that's for later. We're now gonna focus on only two tracing image. And next section is gonna be about further how we're gonna fill in this. Pdf. Okay, so now you know how you a major tracing image if you don't have that much experience with computers and technology. This camera does require some technology, but it is technology you don't have to pay for. And it's something you have on your computer and you can try to figure out how to use it. 5. Copyright: First of all, I want to say that I'm not a legal expert, and I notice is a difficult subject. Please note that rules are different in every state in the US and also different loss for Europe. If you really want an expert advice on the issue, then I suggest asking someone in your city who's experienced, incorporate loud and can help you out with that. When it comes to embroidery patterns, you are the owner off the in border pattern, and if someone copies your pattern and also sells it on Etsy, then you can file a complaint in etc. Something that I do see often in embroidery patterns. And it's something that I also used to do is that you state that you can't sell any M border pieces you made from this pattern. And this is not true because when you sell your patterns of people, they all have the right to sell the finished piece they made with the pattern guides you give them. Now, when it comes to tracing an image like I'm doing in my class, it is different. So if I really was going to put it in my shop and sell this pattern, then I should have asked permission from the owner off this image because I'm not selling this pattern, but I am using it in educational way. It is not copyright infringements. I'm not directly profiting off her illustration. I'm just merely using it as an example. But this is also bear gets complicated because if you who is watching his right now is watching this class, then if you want to trace an image on Lee for the shape and change it up afterwards, then it's a different thing because nobody actually saw you tracing the image. And maybe the image doesn't look any more like the original image. However, the fact that I'm going to trace the image on camera makes it a different story because there is actual proof of me tracing the image. Nevertheless, what the situation is. I think it's really important to support each other and credit 6. What to include in the PDF: and this part of the glass. We're going to continue filling in the pdf file for the pattern, and we're also going to discuss what should be in it, and wider information is relevant. So here we have now the tracing image. I didn't mind it illustrated, but as I said previously, it's also totally fine. If you did it in the way with just a fine liner, I make it really smooth just that people know what to trace. So here we have to DMC color chart. I looked at many reviews of a lot of patterns. I really wanted to have a clear view of what people lights and disliked. And a lot of things that I saw is that there are patterns out there that people have without the color chart, which I think is very important to have to have a color chart. People want to know the exact color that you're using and most people when it comes to embroider. We used the emcee, so that is a good way to just amuse your color numbers for him. Very important, because I think what a lot of betters people are very interested to colors that you use and the combination. So I think always includes a really clear view off the colors that you're using by starting off with an overview off the colors. This is really simple. What I did is I went to the D. M C website and I went to their truck base and then their six trend embroidery flaws. And here you have all the colors you have two different since of different colors. And what I did is I just did a screenshot of little piece with embroidery on it, and I went to Dio. And then what I did is I went to elements and I used the circle. I will show you. I just placed a circle on here and copied it three more times, and I uploaded the pink older screenshots. And if you just drag it over there, you could see that it's placed inside, but not perfectly. She can click on its wise and stretch it out, and you can just make sure that the entire circle is filled with the tread. So I did that with all the other trends, too. And what I did then is I just place an image off the embroidery that I made and everywhere put in the colors. So friends is I wanted to show that the color tree 19 as used here in this line, but also here for this and also for this stem, so that it's clear that it's wrong color for each of those things. And I did that also Biddle the other colors. So now that we have our color chart done, we're gonna go over to the next page and a foul because I'm going to sell my embroidered pattern as a beginner's pattern. I want tohave, an absolute beginner know what to do from start to end, so every extra information to eat compute in their adds value. So what I like to do next in the foul is about placing the fabric and embroidery hoop, which sounds really simple. But if you sell it as a beginner embroidery pattern, I think it's really smart to do that so that people know how to do it, even if they already know how to do. It is just a nice touch to put in there, and it's also something you just have to photograph ones and then taken, just always added into your pdf fell What I did, I made a picture of a little bit of, ah, fabric that is crumbled up. That has a lot of creases in it so that people can see that Indy ends its old sides and it looks nice. And I have a little bit of overview it it about how to do it The next time that I have in my pdf file is about tracing the pattern. I'm gonna go over that in the next section off the class because that is a big part off class. How are you going to do that? So we're going to skip this one for now. Here I have the supplies were speak for itself. When it comes to fabric, it's good to give the option linen or muslin fabric, because what I noticed ah, lot is, for instance, in the Netherlands, where I'm from Muslim fabric is not really a thing. It doesn't translate well to other languages as there for linen. It is very universal. And then we're gonna go over to finishing the back off the hoop, which is also good to include, especially for a beginner. In my experience, I do get a lot of questions about sad, and I see it a lot online that people like. How do you do that? How do you back? So who? So these are images I once made, and I can use them again and again for the patterns. 7. Design on fabric methods: we're now going to discuss the different methods for placing your embroider design on the fabric. So tracing the pattern, which is a big one because a lot of people want to know how to do that. This one depends all on what kind of important pattern you want to make. If you want to make a PdF pattern, then I would suggest to just make it like this. The tracing image. If you want to create kids, then I have a better suggestion that you do. I am really a big fan of this Web side, not affiliated with them. I just really love their website. Spoon Flour is a website where you can print out your own fabrics. You send it to them day prince. It outs on the gorgeous fabrics also designed by all these designers and all these designers get a percentage off the fabric that that they design. So it's kind of like a marketplace, but I really use it just for to upload my own fabrics and to embroider on them. So here you have your you go here and you upload your design. You choose a foul. I'm going to choose my air Miss C. You can do it if the a p a k a PNG and a Jiff. Okay. Show he right. Have take the box that it's my own image and then I can upload it. Okay, so now we uploaded the image. What we have to do now? The battered out I didn't design it I made now is really for a swatch if I want to make it for so here you have my design. The first thing what you do is that you order a tests watch just so you can see how it looks. Asses. It's EST watch. We wanted in the center, and I want a smaller You have so many different option. If you look at their fabrics, you can see all the fabrics I would do is just a cotton deaths watch. And then you will have this. This is the exact size that it will be done. I think for a kid, this is really good because it adds it adds value to dark kit 8. Stitching guide: for the stitching guide. I'm first going to take you to the method that I use for my patterns. But I also want to show you how to do what you want to make a kid, and you don't want to use any video materials. So you only wanna have something that you can print out and put with your kid. I'm gonna use my phone camera, because that way you can see how you can do it at home without having a DSR did. I'm now holding in my hands. This is a pretty expensive machine, and it's really easy. You can just use amount. It's just something that I attached to its able. This is just an old, uh, table that I used. That's for plants. That's why you see the plant. Mork. I will put the link in the description where I have to sting from its really easy. I just crew it on a table. Then I have a camera moms and therefore a mobile phone, and this way I can just sit here and I'm gonna border while I record which my mount that way can also added your videos on your phone. If you would like it if that's how you prefer to do it. So now I'm gonna show you how to re videos. Look, when I recorded with my phone, this is the video that I made with my phone for the first. I think around seven minutes. It is a bit yellowish, but that's because it was getting dark. As long as the lighting is still good, he can see everything that's fine. I'm going to show you that the quality is actually fine on your phone. There's nothing wrong with it. And it's a good way to film. I'm gonna hit play. And as you can see, there is no. As you can hear, there is no audio for my patterns. I don't use audio because it's nice when people scroll truth video that they can see when there is Steck. So when they actually need some info and that is more clear for them. If you want to A text to your video and it's really easy. There are a lot of options where you can do that. The free options if you have a Mac, are I movie, but you can also use Google Drive if you upload your videos in Google Drive, he can add caption Student, You can also do this in the YouTube editor, and you can also do this with power points. PowerPoint is also a great tool to edit your videos, to put slides to, to put extra text with it. I used I movie because I'm working with a Mac and I do everything with I movie. So that's where I did this. I just created a little whites block and added sex to it. The video is about 50 minutes long, so every time I'm doing a new thing, I will make a video off it. So this is a little trick that I like to use. It's something that I always do and added it in the video and it sex that I use one long strands and use it as a two strand option. So it's equal. And this is some feedback that I got recently to show also the back off the hoop because people want to know what you do with the back of the hoop and with the tread here, I'm sure ing hey, you can let go to tread and now I'm saying they k you can just go ahead and repeat the whole process to the end of these stem when it's a large area and it's excellent time I speeded up. People also like it when it's not speed up when it's just in the same pace that they're doing it. So I would suggest to always do a little bit without speeding it up, and it's important to explain everything and adopt points. I put my video camera all off camera. I did all the other ones because there's no need for them to see that also tried to do some close up so that people can really see how it is more up close. So I'm gonna squeal bit further. So you see that delighting is a bit dark, is so closer to the end of the day, and when it really gets too dark, I just pick it up the next day and do it again and continue. I just want to show you how to quality is when there is actually really good lights, so that's here. But you see here that I'm speeding it up. It's always good to have someone else look at your text. What I like to do is I asked my boyfriend also. I'm a Dutch person, a dust person. English is not my first language, so the spoken word of my English is fine. I mean, everybody can understand me, but when it comes to writing, I'm I'm not confident enough. But even if you're really good at writing, if your grammar is absolutely perfect, then it's always good to show someone who knows nothing about embroidery and show them the text and the video to ask if it makes sense for them. That is always a good way to look. If it's is good if it is good for a beginner, if they understand what you're saying. And I always like to do that with my boyfriend, first of all, because he's he is British, so he's obviously better in English than me. He has no experience and embroidery. So what? I mean, and if it makes sense so that we've done all that and we have our feet, you foul. But then we have to place it into Pdf. Well, how we're going to do that is like this. We're gonna put a nice graphic here with its extent, says Click here for video guide. And what we're gonna do is we're gonna go to I'm gonna go to my YouTube channel and I'm going to upload a video. I'm going to select a video. I'm gonna put it in here and in the description off the video I'm gonna put in plant. It's a pattern video guide. I'm not gonna put in a description, so I don't need to do any marketing for it, so I won't have it on licit. So everyone who has the video link and CTO video Sure you're gonna click unlisted. And here you have to link to your video. I'm gonna copy that. Link. Copy Link. We're going to go back to embroidery pattern on the box that says click here when you click on that. And here we have a little link that we can insured, and we're gonna put the link off the YouTube video and then it's all set. Now that I show you how to do the video guide, I'm gonna show you how to do it in print. If you want to make if you don't want to make videos, if you don't want to do all that technical stuff. If you just want to make something that you can print out, can put it in with a kid, we'd go to go over that now. Well, there are several ways to do it. My recommended way would to be first of all. Also film. It's which sounds maybe a bit weird. But if you film Ed So you're gonna film oldest stitches And what you can do, for instance, here in quick time I can do show clips. So here I can show clips When you make a video, every video is made out of afraid So I can go with my arrow to do right And you see that every frame here is selected. This will take forever if I do like this. But here you see the scene and I can just go on and go to the important one that I need. So, unfortunately, I have this big white block here, so I couldn't make a good screenshot, but for instance, this would be a really good picture. So what I would do is I would make a screenshot off this. I would make it a little bit bigger, then a square and then you can afterwards make it into a square and then put it in your embroidery pattern in your pdf and you can take all the steps with it so you can put explanation with it what you're doing, so I would use this one, and here I would show that I I would put my finger on the back of the stitch. So basically oldest steps. I think that's the best thing to do if you want to have it in print. 9. Selling on Etsy: for the last part. We are going to put the pattern in etc. I'm going to show you how to make the cover image on what's it include in your description , when everything is done, we're gonna make our at seal is saying and what we're going to do first is we're gonna make our picture now.

So with this size, everything that will be on this bigger, you will see it in a preview. Next up, we're gonna upload a picture that you blondes on here already have a picture. This picture. So I'm gonna put that image in here. But I did with this image when I made it and photo shop I cropped it to a certain ratio.

It's not something that goes really fast, and I can just do it just at once because they're very un decisive. When it comes to my designing skills, I thought it's best to speed this part up, but what you basically sees that I'm just putting in a white box and then putting in some sex? It's a speedy F pattern, and I'm playing around with its X and see what looks good, and in the end, I'm going to save it as a PNG foul. Now we're gonna go to Etc.
