This week’s Randje per week challenge chart had numerals. They were easy to work. This week’s stitch on TAST challenge is slipped detached chain or tulip stitch. the link to the samples worked earlier was posted on FB group page.
The kutchwork embroidery on Cream kalamkari patch work tunic was completed this week.
Pink kutchwork border on green
The sleeve border design is made of three rows of kutchwork on this green fabric. The part I am working is in pink thread and is in the centre and bigger than the other two rows. The other two rows are to be worked in green thread. This work being intricate is worked in segments. The kutchwork design is quite simple. The central part of the border of one sleeve was completed.
Orange violet combo tunic
The kutchwork elements in four colours constitute the border for the sleeve of this orange and violet combo tunic. This is the first segment of this project. Rest of the embroidery will be done after the tunic is sewn.
The beads are added onto the mirror worked sleeves. Following this, the tunic front will be worked. Now that the tunic is sewn, the embroidery can be done at leisure.
A medium sized yoke design is drawn on graph paper during this week for the beige linen fabric.
I have a red salwar which needed a tunic to make it into a set. I found this printed cotton mull fabric. At this point, there is no idea to embellish this tunic with embroidery. I need some casual wear. Just a desire to share the picture.
