Chikankari Swan

I have started to embroider this chikankari design long back.  Completed two days back.  Within that I have cross stitched two swans which I have blogged about it here.  Now coming back to the chikan swan, it took so many days coz I got bored while doing the fine details in the design.  Finally seeing the cross stitch swans I got interest in the chikan swan and completed it.  Here it is :

I have learned Chikan embroidery thru Anita of Artistic Fingers .  Many thanks to her.  Anita I am waiting for more SAL from you.
Hope all of you like this.  I will come up more design of chikan embroidery in my coming posts and next I will meet you with my kutch embroidery border for a blouse.  Till then,
Happy Embroidering.

  5. Shami, can you pls tell which is the best material/cloth to do Chikan embroidery?

    1. I usually use voil or 2x2 cotton material. Terry cotton is the best.
