How to Utilize Fabric for Wall Hangings : How to Stitch the Second & Third Colors for a Wall Hanging


DAVID A. CLEMEN: Okay, welcome back. So, now
I’m going to sew the third panel to the other two that I have already worked it, and I want
the beige to be in the middle. So, I’m actually going to sew to this side of the base instead
on this side of the red. If I did that, then I’ll have the beige on one end, and I want
the beige to be in the middle. So, now that I’ve got that, I’m actually going to turn
the fabric over to get to the beige side, and just going to line this up. And this is
actually got–when I cut the other two colors, I actually didn’t do them perfectly straight
’cause I wanted to add a slight design element to this piece. So, we’ll see that when we
stretch the fabric. And then, I’m going to go ahead and drop the needle. And I’m using
white thread and you can match–usually, most of the fabric stores they’ll have, you can
usually match the thread close to the fabric that you want to use. But since I’m using
three colors, I’ve decided to use a white. You can also use a beige thread; the thread
can actually add design elements to the piece. You can use black thread. This threads that
I’m using are cotton but you going to get cotton blends. There are lots of different
kinds of threads. There’s all polyester, and there’s heavier-weight threads. If you’re
using a heavier fabric, you can get like an upholstery weight thread. If you go to an
upholstery weight thread, you going to want to get probably a bigger needle. This is actually
a delicate needle for just fine sewing and detail sewing, topstitching. And so, I’m going
to go ahead and finish this up, and then, I’m going to move on to the topstitching of
the other side.
