Kutch Work Border

Today I have come up with a kutch work border.  I have used herringbone stitch for the flower and fishbone stitch for leaves.  Stems are stitched using Back stitch.  The other parts are kutch work.  I am going to use this border for a pillow case.  I have completed stitching one pillow case.  After completing the other one I will show it in another post. 

Closesup of the design.

The design has been taken from Kutch work designs book of Mridulas embroidery school.  In that book u can find all the possible designs for kutch work from simple to complex designs.  Also, I have bought a new embroidery machine and nowadays trying to do simple embroidery using machine. In the coming days I will blog about it. 
Till then,
Happy Embroidering.
