Kutch work Saree - started

I have started this blog to show case my craft works and I was concentrating mainly on embroidery works. But crocheting also takes my time as a project can be completed easily within a short period of time than embroidery.  This year i have started a saree project focussing on kutch work. It is a plain saree of dark blue color with a simple golden zari border.  The saree and the design which i have selected is here;

I have selected Anchor cotton thread and have done the embroidery in two strands.  A single motif which I have worked in the pallu part is shown.  Other than Kutch work i have used herringbone stitch and chain stitch.  I am working on the pallu part now and have to do a border on one side.  After completing that I will post my progressed work.  till then, Happy embroidering.

You can see my other kutch works here.


  1. Beautiful! I love that design you've chosen and it works so well in the colours.

  2. It is really a lovely design, so intricate and lacy. I understand this takes far more time than your crocheting projects, but keep up the good work.

  3. Lovely work Shami..... how long it will take to complete and how many motifs are you planning to do in whole saree?

    I too want to try kutch work soon.


I would like to hear from you as it boosts me up a lot.
