Temari Tutorial-C10 division + V-ruler

from Unicorn Studios
(10) Name: 'Embroidery : Temari Tutorial-C10 division + V-ruler
Temari Tutorial-C10 division + V-ruler
Temari Tutorial-C10 division + V-ruler

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Wrap a ball

Pattern Description:

The Temari complex 10 division is seen as being difficult to do, but it is the basis for thousands of the most beautiful and intricate designs.

Actually, it isn't that hard and my Tutorial teamed with the printable V-ruler that comes with it make the whole thing much easier.

The Japanese V-ruler is made of plastic and makes the marking process much more accurate and easier than the usual paper tape method. But, the plastic V-rulers are hard to get and they become brittle quite quickly and then snap. My printable ones can be renewed as many times as you need, for ever, and my easy-to follow Tutorial makes marking a C10 a breeze!

Just a word regarding the V-ruler. In order for it to be accurate, you must print the page out at an A5 setting. If you don't have this on your printer setup program, use the custom paper size 5.8 x 8.3 inches, or 148 x 210 millimetres, with no scaling applied. You can then print on ordinary letter-size paper or whatever you use, but the ruler should be scaled properly.

Try a test print on ordinary paper - the millimetres on the printed ruler should coincide exactly with a mm ruler. Then print the ruler on the thickest card your printer will take, laminate it or cover with clear sticky plastic and cut out.
