How Does an Embroidered Portfolio Get Made?
You might not think that leather and embroidery go together, but they certainly do. An embroidered portfolio can produce an outstanding style that you will want to carry with you wherever you go.
You can add practically anything onto your portfolio. Some of the embroidered surfaces that you can utilize include beautiful graphic details. You can add a logo, a name, or a floral accent among other things to your portfolio.
But your embroidered portfolio needs to come with a sturdy body. The portfolio must feature the right threads used in the creation process. More importantly, the threads should be embroidered well enough to ensure the surface looks beautiful.
There are many steps that will go into the process of producing a quality embroidered portfolio:
- An embroidery pattern has to be produced. The design can work with as many holes as necessary, although a smaller design doesn’t need as many. A traditional needle is often good enough.
- The holes for the pattern are to be poked into the leather surface. A tracing paper may help with getting the holes organized in the right places.
- The thread will go through the pattern in the directions you want to utilize. Certain colors and directions are necessary based on the pattern layout.
- The thread should be trimmed on the inside part of the portfolio after the pattern has been produced. The design will not unravel if the thread is organized carefully enough.
- The sides of the leather should be stitched to ensure the embroidered surface will be secured. Another layer of leather would go under the underside of the embroidered layout. The added stitching helps to keep the pattern from being loose.
The work helps with producing a quality look, but it helps to be aware of how well the pattern is aligned. This includes seeing there are no problems with the thread possibly coming loose. You will appreciate the quality of the portfolio design when the embroidered surface is laid out well.
There are a few helpful things that should be considered when getting an embroidered portfolio:
- Look at how well the underside of the embroidered feature is supported. The inside part of the embroidered feature should not have lots of air on the inside.
- See how well the thread on the embroidered surface is arranged. The thread should be tight enough to where it will not come apart.
- The density of the embroidered thread deserves to be noted as well. The thread should be dense enough to where the logo or whatever you produce is easy to see from a slight distance. Anything where the thread is too thin might be difficult to make out unless you put the portfolio real close to your eyes.
The design of an embroidered portfolio makes it one of the best things you can use for your organization and planning needs. Look at how well one of these portfolios can look the next time you need something that looks beautiful and different from everything else.
