I have noticed recently that some people have been playing with Tyvek and I thought I would show some samples that I did last year.
These were made from an article by Lorraine Pickles called "Pull Yourself Together" in issue 31 of the Stitch Magazine printed by the Embroiderers Guild in the U.K.
Firstly you had to paint some Tyvek using silk paints both on the front and back then let it dry.
You then cut it into 4 strips -embroidered on the strips and then re- embroidered the strips back togetheragain.
I blanket stitched around the edges as well. When you have finished the embroidery you then place the embroidery between a folded piece of parchment paper (Glad Bake in Australia) .
Using a dry iron on the cotton setting you hover the iron over the parchment paper making sure the iron does not come in contact with the Tyvek embroidery.
Keep an eye on it because it will shrink very quickly.
You will be able to see what is happening through the parchment paper.
This is how mine ended up.
This is another sample but in different colours ----------
