Chikan Embroidery SAL

My progress in the Chickan SAL with Anita is given here.  Almost all the elements in the motif is completed except two.  It gives me pleasure while stitching the chikan stitches.  I enjoyed thoroughly.  This week the classes were over.  And for me the last lesson stitches are left out.  I will be completing this week and show u my completed motif in the coming post.

This is the my progress so far.  Below is the overcast satin stitch part .  It looks very simple but it takes time to complete the simple details in the motif.  But the result is very much pleasing.

Next is the slanting satin stitch, Roman stitch (the flower part).

Next comes the blanket stitch. straight stitch variation(my stitch on this is not up to the mark).  I have to practice more on this. Detached chain variation(Lookes perfect for a flower bud).

Now comes satin stitch variation.

Now the overall progress so far,

I am very happy that I have learnt chikan embroidery.  Lots and lots of thanks to Anita. May God bless her and give her more talents.  Looking forward for u'r valuable comments and suggestions.

Happy embroidering.
Shami Immanuel.


  1. Your Chikan looks wonderful! It is hard to believe the SAL is nearly complete. What will you do with your piece?

  2. This is sooo nice Shami. I love the color as well.
