Kasuti Embroidery Kurti

Today happy to show case my latest embroidered kurti.  It is a kurti kit which I have bought from Shreepathi design Studio.  The kit came with traced fabric, necessary anchor threads and needle.  

The design has been traced for the neck part and border for sleeves.  




I have used two strands of threads.  Enough thread is there in the kit.  They also provide kits, design sheets, design books for kurtis and bedsheets.   Out of the 4 kits I have purchased I have completed two.  

Now I am working on a needlepoint kit which I will be completing within December 1st week.  So do watch my space.  Till then, Happy embroidering.

Ribbon embroidery and MCP update

Hi all,

Hope all r doing well.  Today I have come up with a ribbon embroidery design which I have tried as a sample.  Initially I have tried some straight stitches with ribbon and I find it difficult to insert the ribbon into and then out of the fabric.  Then I have tried the woven rose stitch with satin ribbon and it came out nice. I have used 3/4" ribbon.  For the leaves I have used 4ply yarn and it matches the ribbon well.  Also added some white beads in between the design and in the centre of the flower.  




Next I will be doing ribbon embroidery in my kurti.  

I am happy that I have completed one more page in my mega cross stitch project.

I am waiting to get the next page completed to see the finished cat.    Now I am embroidering a kasuti kurti which I will finish within a day or two.  So in my next post I will be coming up with the kurti and an embroidery sample.  Till then, watch my space.
