This bag is from Vietnam made by a tribe up in the Hinterlands

 

Where ever I go in the world I collect embroideries, some of the most beautiful are the very colourful embroideries mainly from India, China, Vietnam, Thailand and many of the South American countries to name a few. A fine example is the bag above, take note of the colours, many of which you would never put together, but it works!!!!!!!!!!!

 

 

 

 

 
 

This work is from China

 


 

 

Curved Designs part of the Pyramid wall hanging

 

Stitch out all the “Circ_01 to Circ_18” then you must mirror all of the designs either in your machine or in your software and then stitch the mirror pieces

 

 

 

 

 

 
 

Draw a line with chalk horizontally across the backing fabric, this line you will use to position and then stitch using a zigzag stitch the design, “design_04”

 

 

 

 

 

Stitch down another 7 of “Design_04” above the previous “Design_04”

 

 

 

 

 

 

Stitch down on both sides “P_03”

 

 


 

 

 

Mirrored “P_03”

 

 


 

 

 

Showing you 14 of “Design_04” stitched and 2 of “P_03” mirrored at one end

 

 

 

 

 

 

Stitch “P_01” above “Design_04” and “P_03”

 

 

 

 

Stitch “P_02” above “P_01”

 

 


 

 

 

Stitch “Design_03” up against “P_02 and P_01”

Stitch “P_01” and “P_02”

 

 


 

 

 

Showing you all the designs stitched at this stage

 

 


 

 

 

Stitch “P_04”

 

 


 

 

 

Stitch 5 of “Design_04” then stitch at the end the mirrored piece of “Design_04”

 

 


 

 

 

 

Stitch “P_05” above “P_04 and Design_04”

 

 


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Stitch “Design_04” diagonally

 

 

 

 

 

 

Stitch “Design_05” up against “Design_04”

 

 


 

 

 


Stitch 3 of “Design_05” then stitch “Design_04” diagonally then stitch “P_05”

 

 


 

 

 

Stitch “P_06” then stitch 3 times “Design_06”

 

 

 

 
 

Stitch “P_06”

 

 


 

 

 

Stitch “P_07” above “P_06” and “Design_06” then stitch diagonally “Design_10”

 


 

 
 

 

Stitch “P_07” the reason for doing this at this stage is sometimes the fabric tends to move and you may not be able to centre the following designs and in that way you can space any gaps you may have.

 

 


 

 

 

Stitch “Design_10”

 

 


 

 

 

 

Stitch in the centre “Design_04” then above stitch “Design_07” You will notice due to movement of fabric that I have a slight gap between “Design_10”on both sides

 

 


 

 

 

Stitch “Design_10” above “Design_07”

 

 


 

 

 

 

Stitch on either side “P_08” then stitch “Design_08”

 

 


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Stitch the other “Design_08” on the other side

 

 


 

 

 

 

Stitch “Design_09” then the other “Design_09”

 

 


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Finished zigzagging all the pieces together for the Pyramid

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Back of Pyramid, showing you all the pieces zigzagged onto the backing fabric

 

 


 

 

Instructions for the Curved Design

 

 

 

 
 

My advice is to number on the back of all the “Circ” designs as you finish, makes life a lot easier

 


 

 

 

 

 

Stitch “Circ_18” down using a zigzag stitch on backing fabric then stitch “Circ_15 and Circ_11”

 

 


 

 

 

 

Stitch “Circ_15, Circ_14, Circ_13, and Circ_12”

 


 

 

 
 

Stitch “Circ_11, Circ_10, Circ_09, Circ_08”

 

 

 

 

 

 

Stitch "Circ_07, Circ_06, Circ_05, Circ_04”

 


 

 

 

 

 
 

 

 

Stitch “Circ_03, Circ_02, Circ_01”

 


 

 

 

 

All the “Circ” designs stitched on the backing fabric

 

Stitch all the other “Circ” designs for the other side of the pyramid

 


 

 
 

Both side of “Circ” designs zigzagged stitched to the backing fabric

 

 


 

 

 

 

Back of the backing fabric showing you all the “Circ” designs zigzagged stitched

 

 


 

 

 

 

Close up of the back of “Circ” designs zigzagged stitched to the backing fabric

 

 

 

 


 
 

Cut away any excess fabric with your scissors try to get as close as you can to the zigzagged edges of the pyramid

 


 

 

 

 
 

Cut Floriani Stitch N Shape to the measurements of the Pyramid as the Stitch N Shape is not large enough for the area I stitched the Stitch N Shape together as shown in the photograph

 

 


 

 

 

 

Lay the Pyramid over the Stitch N Shape and cut using your scissors the Stitch N Shape to the shape of the pyramid

 

 


 

 

 

 

 

Stitch N Shape cut to the shape of the pyramid

 

 


 

 

 

 

Using the fabric you wish to attach the pyramid and circular designs lay the pyramid and circular designs on and marking with chalk the three pieces

 

 


 

 

 

 

 

Measure your pellon to the size of the wall hanging you wish to have or bedspread

 

 


 

 

 

 

If you wish to quilt around the Pyramid, this is a nice way to give the wall hanging a polished finish, the quilting takes such a little time to using your straight stitch from your sewing machine

 

 


 

 

 

 

Closer look at how I designed in chalk the quilting lines

 

 


 

 

 

 

Quilting stitched using a straight stitch

 

 


 

 

 

 

 

Once you have stitched the quilting then cut away any excess fabric, so you have 4 nice, neat edges

 

 


 

 

 

 

 

 
 

Iron the bottom and top of the wall hanging a thin hem, I suggest you use the steam on your iron.

 

 


 

 
 

 

Once you have finished ironing both the top and bottom of the wall hanging, overlap the hem you just ironed to make another hem and stitch the top and bottom of the wall hanging.

Repeat doing the sides of the wall hanging

 


 

 

This is a close up of the finished hem on the correct side of the wall hanging; this gives the wall hanging a nice edge

Textured Pyramid Cushion Instructions

 

 

Notions

 

¼ meter of fabric for the centre panel

 

1 meter of the two side panels

 

¼ meter of the bottom panel

 

Silk for backing centre panel only if your fabric is also very fine

 

Stitch out 3 of “Cush_01”

 


 

 

 
 

The dark grey and white fabric is a very fine Japanese cotton, as this fabric is so fine I will back the fabric using a cream fine silk

 


 

 
 

Showing you how fine the cotton is

 


 

 

Laying the cotton fabric over the fine silk fabric, this gives the cotton fabric depth

 


 

 

 

Stitch out 3 of “Cush_01” Set the 3 designs in a row and then appliqué the designs using a similar stitch as I used on the border.The border stitch is a common stitch in your Decorative Stitches from your sewing machine

 


 

 

 
 

All 3 “Cush_01” stitched down to the centre panel

 

 


 

 

Using another fabric that matches but not similar to the fine cotton centre panel, this cotton fabric is also Japanese, make a hem using your iron then turning the hem you just ironed over to give a lovely finish

 

 


 

 

 

Stitch a contrasting fabric at the bottom panel, I also used the selvage which was slightly frayed, this gives the work another dimension, once again this piece of fabric is Japanese

 


 

 

 

 

Close up of the frayed selvage on the bottom panel

 


 
 

 

 

 

Place the two fabrics which you had ironed on either side of the fine cotton centre panel, using your sewing machine and stitching a triple stitch on the hem that you ironed on both fabrics, this also stitches all the fabrics together, and then stitch the cushion together

 

 


 

 

 

I used 3 black glass buttons from the 1950’s on the reverse side of the cushion, they came from a coat my Mother had apparently, as you can see in the photograph due to the buttons being made of glass they have small chips out of them, but the cushion from the back still looks great, a nice way of using old buttons

 

 


 

 

 

I am building up a combination of cushions using similar colours but totally different design sets, by keeping the colours similar you can make a lovely groupof cushions

 

 


 

 

 

Makes a beautiful cushion on its own or as a grouping

 

 


 

 

 

Close up of the finished cushion

 

 


 

 

 

 

Reverse the cushion and you have another way of displaying your cushion
