Hello, my lovely readers. Hope all of you might have a great week end. In this post I am showing you a saree project which I have started a week back.
After learning Kamal Kadai work I have done a project on cotton kurti and it came up well. From then I was wishing to do a kamal kadai project on a saree and the day came. I have bought a plain chiffon saree and selected a portion of the design from the book Kamal work flower design(book No 19) of Mahila art centre. I will give a review of the book some time later.
Then the process of selecting the colors. Uff........ with great difficulty I decided on doing the kamal kadai flowers with pearl cotton thread(Those threads were lying in my thread box idle for more than 6 months after purchasing) and it is easy to do that with pearl cotton thread. Then for the stems and leaves part I have selected a variegated anchor cotton thread (no: 1335) and I hope it looks good. Waiting for your feedbacks. Center of the flowers has to be embellished with some stones or sequins.
Now the close up of the flowers. I have managed to do cretan stitch for leaves and for the stem I have done whipped running stitch because I have bored on doing stem stitch and chain stitch. I like the wavy pattern of the stem. What about u?
I have completed the border in the pallu. In order to complete the saree without getting bored I have decided to do each day one pink and blue flowers and the stem and the leaves associated to it . Hope I will be finishing this project within a month. Let me see . Till then, Happy Embroidering.
