Cutwork: multiple bars


Multiple bars are very easily made, although at first sight the portion with multiple bars may appear intimidating . Here is such a portion.


Start by making the foundation bar. From one end to the other. I know it doesn't look as the printed one, but it is supposed to be that way, don't worry.



Next, start filling the bar and when you come at the section, branch the bar (as shown down).



Fill that branched bar back to the center (or foundation) bar. Continue working it.



When you come to the next section, branch another bar.



Work the same as previously until the end.
Here it is finished.


Next, cut the fabric. and stitch.



And that's it. I have prepared some finishing techniques for later. Stay tuned.
Update: a sneak peek.

Thank you Michele!
It took me two days - a couple of hours each day to be more exact! The portion shown is quite small, you know.

wow! I read a while ago on burdastyle abt cutwork but only now I picture how it's done! My grandma used to make huge awesome table cloths with cutwork and embroidery so I grew up thinking it's you know, the usual thing to do, and only when I began to make things I started to feel respect and fascination! And maybe one day I will give this a try... Thank you and yep, looking forward to see more!
