Pattern for the design
Used back stitch and lazy daisy stitch with 3 strands.  For the centre flower I have added a straight stitch inside each lazy daisy petal.  The outer circle is also stitched using back stitch.    For the back fabric I have stitched only the outer circle with back stitches.  Then placing the wrong sides of both the fabric together whipped up the corresponding back stitches with a white round bead for every two stitches.  Will post a clear tutorial with pictures soon.  You can watch the above video for the making of the ornament.

Felt Star Christmas Ornament with snowflake design

 Hi all 

Hope all are doing well and good.  11 months have passed by and tomorrow we are entering into the month of festivity.  We used to unwrap our christmas tree and put it in our home tomorrow.  This year I have crocheted some stars to hang it on the tree.  As I love to embroider than crochet I tried a felt sheet star with a snowflake design and it came out so beautifully than I expected.  I am very happy to share with you all the felt star along with the design and the video of its making.  

I have make a video tutorial for the making of this star.  
Kindly watch the video and if you like my videos subscribe to my channel.  
For this project I have used a white felt sheet and pricked holes over the design.  I have used the simple back stitch and straight stitch and french knots.  So  I have pricked holes in the points where I have taken each stitches.  From the design you can understand that.  

I will post a better picture soon.

I have used anchor thread number 46 with 3 strands to stitch the whole design.  For the french knots used 3 strands and 1 wrap.  Then sticked some golden stones.  Attached a satin ribbon at the back and the star is ready to be hanged.  

Other christmas projects

Hope you all like this project.  I will be back with another crochet finish soon.  Till then have a nice time with your needle and thread.

Aari Embroidery Blouse

 Hi all

Hope all are doing well and good.  I learned aari embroidery sometime back.  Though there are so many stitches in aari I am comfortable only in the basic chain stitch.  That too working with zari thread.  I am not comfortable in working with silk thread using aari needle.  

This embroidery is worked on a silk blouse.  It has been customised for my friend.  When she asked can you do some simple embroidery for me I accepted it.   She gave me a model design and I have drawn a pattern accordingly and this is the outcome. 

Some close ups

For the neckline I stitch a line of chain stitch, then worked zig zag chain stitch over that chain line.  That gives a lace like effect. Then attaced a line of ball chain.  The third line is again chain line with zig zag chain. 

For the floral stems, used ball chain.  for the leaves used fishbone stitch using purple colour silk thread with 4 strands.  Some tear drop stones are added for leaf shape and it is outlined with zardosi strings.  Added golden colour stones at the tip of the stones. 

Now I am working on the sleeves.  I will update this post with the sleeve design once it is completed.  

I always work designs from already existing patterns.  This time I came out of my comfort zone and gained courage to work aari embroidery blouse that too for a costly saree.  Happy that it came out well.  It has given me more confidence in making custom embroidery pieces. 

Hope every one like this design.  Drop in your feedbacks in the comments section.  I am working on some crochet pieces for the past two days.  I will come up with that in my next post.  Till then, have a nice day.

 Hi all

Hope all are doing well and good.  In my embroidery design series, today I am happy to share with you a simple design that uses buttonhole stitch for flowers and leaves.  It is an easy stitch for a beginner.  It makes an easy filling for flowers.  

This design can be used as a single motif or can be used as an all over design for your kurtis or sarees.  It can be worked continuously to form a border design.  It looks very simple but gives more elegance to your dresses.  

Let us see the design now.
