Cross stitching on PVC pipe

DIY: Cross Stitching on Pipe | onelmon

Hi all! I’m back with another PVC pipe creation today. And yes, as you can judge from the title, we are going to do some needlework on pipe! Some of you may have seen my previous project, the Pipe Bangle, which also involved stitching on PVC pipe. But this time, we are doing something that is a little bit different from that. We are going to fill the pipe with cross-stitched drawings. Excited to try it out? Think of a drawing you would like to have on the pipe and let’s get crafting!

Halo semuanya! Hari ini saya kembali dengan kreasi dari pipa PVC. Mungkin pembaca sekalian sudah langsung bisa menebak dari judulnya? Yeap, tema kita hari ini adalah pipa dan sulam. Mungkin di antara para pembaca ada yang pernah melihat kreasi gelang (bangle) dari pipa di blog ini sebelumnya yang mana juga menggunakan tehnik menjahit pada pipa. Tapi yang akan kita lakukan hari ini akan sedikit berbeda. Kali ini kita akan menghiasi pipa dengan lukisan dari sulaman benang. Tertarik? Ayo pikirkan gambar yang ingin anda lihat pada pipa dan langsung dibuat sekarang juga!

What you need | Yang anda butuhkan:

  1. PVC pipe | Pipa PVC;
  2. Cross stitch pattern | Pola sulaman;
  3. Embroidery thread & needle | Benang sulam & jarum;
  4. Hand drill | Bor tangan;
  5. Scissors | Gunting;
  6. Masking tape.

Step 1: Find or draw your own pattern on a piece of paper.

Langkah 1: Cari atau gambar pola sulam pada selembar kertas.

Step 2: Make sure that the width of your drawing equals to the circumference of your PVC pipe. As for the height, I’ll leave that up to you :)

Langkah 2: Pastikan lebar pola sama dengan keliling pipa PVC. Untuk tingginya, boleh terserah anda :)

Step 3: Decide where your stitching is going to be and tape your drawing up there.

Langkah 6: Dan akhirnya kita sampai di tujuan utama kita, menyulam! Siapkan benang-benang sulam dan jarum anda dan mulailah menyulam.

I was trying the trending coloring technique, the ombre effect, with the threads but it doesn’t seem to be a successful try out. I think I should have used 3 more colors in between to make a smoother color transition :\
I personally send this to the kitchen to hold the cooking utensils. But I think this might be great for flower pot or stationery holder too! :D What do you think? What would you use this for?

Saya mencoba untuk menggunakan tehnik warna yang sedang nge-trend saat ini, efek ombre, pada benang tapi hasilnya kurang bagus karena efek ombre-nya tidak begitu terlihat. Mungkin seharusnya saya menyisipkan 3 warna lagi di antara warna-warna ini untuk transisi warna yang lebih halus :\
Saya menaruhnya di dapur sebagai tempat menaruh alat-alat dapur. Tapi saya rasa pipa berdekor ini juga cocok untuk pot bunga ataupun tempat tampungan alat tulis. :D Bagaimana menurut anda? Bagaimana anda akan menggunakannya?

    • Thanks for the lovely comment, Mette! You’re right! The hand drill is kinda handy for my PVC pipe project. There’s no way I could make those holes without it :)

  3. Hi Onel!
    I would use it in the office for pens and marker. It’s so cute!
    I really want to start some DIY projects that i love, like your mustache clock ;) Now I’m still trying to fill the empty spaces with furniture and getting the stuff off the floor, and then I will start making my new home fun and pretty. I’ll come back for more inspiration!
