As I have promised in my last post I am here to show the kasuti embroidery yoke and border. This time I have embroider this in small pieces of fabric so that it can be attached to the main piece. I have got the kasuti embroidery net from Raja thread stores in chennai but the no of holes per inch is larger than the one which I had earlier. That's why stitches are somewhat longer. But it gives perfect look like before.
Fabric used : Black color silk cotton
Thread used: Anchor embroidery thread
No. of strands: 3
Design taken from: Mridulas school of embroidery - kasuti applications book
I have just placed the embroidered pieces on top of the fabric just for an idea how it can be attached to the fabric.
Two years back I have embroidered the same design but with different border. You can view that piece here.
If any of you is interested in buying this piece do mail me at email@example.com.
