Hi there, I'm Lilach Tzudkevich, a self-taught textile artist and teacher from sunny Israel.

I've been practicing textile art as a self expression intensely in the last decade, and I absolutlly love everything related to sewing stitching embroidery and textiles.

I studied visual arts for some good years, mastering graphic design, illustration, painting, and drawing. 

Textiles and threads are my soul's home. Stitchery ran in the family back to my great grandfather who was a tailor (or even further back but this is what I know of) to my grand mother, mother, and me. No wonder it roots me down.


In my work, I create abstract and figurative images usin... See full profile

1. Intro: Is this for you?: Hi, my name is Lee Last gave each and I texted artist and teacher here in scale share. Welcome to my class. Craft around. Take upswell decor. This is the beginner's class for crafters who would like to engage with fabrics as a creative medium who have a passion for sewing and embroidery and a tickle of creativity in their hands. You only need to know a basic stitch. I'll show you all the steps provide you with template to work with and guide you through from tracing your pattern, choosing your fabrics, arranging them and sewing it all together. By the end of this class, you'll be able to craft your own. Take upswell the core to trace patrons to fabrics, play with fabric composition and stitch the fabrics in the colorful way. Using straight stage and backstage, you possess a small, unique world accord to hang in your home. Let's get ready and get started 2. What you'll need : uh 3. Locate your template: you know there to begin your project, you first need to obtain the pattern. Do that by going into the project to scroll down into project and resources. And on the right side, you confined under resources, the pdf file, you click on it and then it it pops up and then you can print it out. 4. Prepare your template: first step in your project would be to create your template. You can other print to pdf or draw your own. If you draw your own, just make sure you mark units space of the cop and the handle his ideas. Here, in my template, we're going to cut around the cops. When you do. Try to keep the paper frame around cops intact as much as you can. It will be very useful later on. Selective fabrics. Cutter Remark areas by making a small cut in the middle and then carefully going around the outline. Anxiety. Repeat the same process with the other templates you can, if you like. In this project, use just one template for one type of cup or three different templates is really up to you . Okay, we're done preparing templates. We're moving on to the next stage, which is selecting and preparing your fabrics. 5. Choose your fabric: selecting your fabrics can be sometimes complicated. What I suggest is that you pick up 6 to 7 different fabrics that work well together. Got him to five by five inch and lay them out on your table. Then you can start the illuminating process. Apply the paper frames you cut earlier to choose your fabrics. They will give you a clear vision of how your elements are going to look like Play around with your friends until your selection looks Cohasset and harmonious. Don't forget to choose another set of 3 to 5 pieces for your sources. Play around and try out different combinations. Changing even just one of the fabrics changes the whole atmosphere. When you're happy with your choice, removed the frames and apply your templates on the fabrics. You're now ready for the next step, which is tracing and cutting the fabrics. 6. Trace& cut the fabrics: tracing your template is basically recreating your template shape on the fabric by tracing around the lights you could if you wanted to cut the fabric around the template. I find it easier to trace the lines first and then cut it out. Apply your template on the left side off your fabric. The pattern is Dow, and it's easier to trace and see the lines you're going to mark. Trace your template with any pen or soft pencil to cut out the inner space of the cup and handle. Fold it in half and make a sleet with the Caesars, then cut around the line. Repeat the same process with a second in the first cup. - The last step of cutting the elements is to fill the inner space of the cups. I'll show you soon why this step is so important. Choose the fabric to fill the inner space of the cop, folded to three layers and trace the shape of the inner space of the cup and then add 1/4 of an inch seam allowance. Cut around the additional line you've marked. See those messy spaces between the cops? Let's sort it out. Apply your feelings under H cap Much better. Great. All the elements are Cassin. Ready? Next, You're going to arrange them in one composition, so stay tuned. 7. Assemble your composition: all your fabric basis, not ready and waiting to be assembled together. Let's do it to begin with Qatar nine by 12 inch rectangle. As a base fabric. I chose Muslim because it's light and really easy to work with. You can go ahead and seeing Zack around your rectangle to prevent the fabric from fraying at all. Really bothered about that? Bring your cops and lying the map in the order that you like and the source. It's either. Under all the three cups are individually under H cup. It's really up to you. Fix a composition in place with either serving pains or stick live. I like Stickler because it saves you dealing with all these pointy bits sticking out. Start by applying clue to the feelings and then carry on to the cops and the saucers Finally arranged the cops one on top of the other for a more realistic view. Congrats. Your composition is assembled and ready to be sewn together 8. Sew your elements: this part of the class. I'm going to cover some basic important issues beforehand. Fix a composition to the fabric so it doesn't move a change by being pointing Bigelow under the caps I'm going to cover now. Three basic topics. Threat needles and stages. Starting with minutes. I use basic, simple sewing threads in multiple colors. I like them. They're easy to use and very accessible. If you want, you can use embroidery thread, which are thinker and can be more noticeable on your project. Threats. High life Your work. You sound like a palette consisting both dark and light chains, contrasting shades of very good to emphasize lines and shapes. Dark and light colors will create highlights and shadows. I working with various of colors and shades. When you can stick to just a few as long as you have dark and light ones, pick a needle that is comfortable for you. I use needle number seven. They faint shop and easy to work. Lastly, stages there many stitches to go. But in this project I'm using to running stage, which is the basic simple stage and backstage, which is more a continuous line. Next on sewing, Cater's read about 25 inch long and spreading to the needle ring ends together and tie with not no. You have a devil split. Start staging from the back to hide, not from the edge of the fabric creating the stitch front. Or I used her running stitch here with Pale Connor. So I repeated tonight with another running stage for a stronger appearance. When you don't guess right, turn the needle to the back of the fabric. State your tiny not by threading the needle in the loop and pulling a shadows and emphasize contours. Reader. Dark red if you want, you can use a few parallel lines to create a shadow and make it more dominant. I'm going to briefly explain backstage. So straight Stitch, then painter natal once teach away and then point your needle down at the end of your last stage, as you fear a staging backwards, then repeat, create highlights by using a pale color. Smit. The whole idea of this project is to enjoy exploring this media, so don't be afraid to dear and try out combination stitches, colors of threads, layers. Take yourself into this adventure with a smile. There is no wrong way here. Everything works, so allow yourself take your time and so 9. Work on the background (optional): we're going to work on the background now. The background for me is as important as the main element. I like to go into details. You can simplify your background or create a complex one. It's really up to you. I'm going to show you how I structure the background, using composition elements first and sewing stitches later. Bring the leftover scraps from this project. You can add more fabrics if you like. I begin by cutting difference drives. I start lining up the stripes in the background, creating a shape, a composition or a rhythm. In this project, I wanted the background to the CLI kitchen tiles, so I based my composition on that. Play around with your background pieces until you're happy with the layout. It could be as minimal as you want or is crowded and detailed as you like. It's really up to you when your composition said, Repeat the steps off, either pinning it in place or using Stick Lou and then start sewing. I usually so my elements using straight stitch in two variations. The first would be the normal straight stage. The second would be horizontal stage. I used this many times. It creates rhythm and bind pieces together. To sell the horizontal state, you sell one horizontal stitch and then turned the needle upwards in 45 degrees to the next ditch has shown here. Repeat as much as you like. Take your time to bind your backlog elements to the main fabric As you see feet. You can add texture and depth to your project by adding lines of seems either on the background fabric or on a different elements you've added to your background. For instance, I added some flowers date ALS on the top part of this project. Another level of adding details is to add texture to your cops. I like adding those extra color emphasis. Start by preparing small crest moon shapes and apply them on the cops. You can use one or two or even more, and so the men continue developing your background as you see feet until your project is finished and you're happy with the result. My teachings for this project has come to an end. I hope you got the most out of it just to feel more notes in my clothes or video 10.
