Whenever someone asked for a kutchwork tutorial, I was putting it off for a future date.
If anyone is new to this embroidery , please visit this site which has dealt with this embroidery eloborately-
I ‘ll also start from the basics,but I feel Bhavani has done a woderful job. So if you have some doubts , you can check and compare with Bhavani’s tutorial.
Deepa has also done a tutorial on this with a variation, how to do kutchwork over a shisha[mirror]?
I haven’t tried her version of working this stitch.
As far as I know , there are three methods of working this stitch.
1.In this type , the edges are blunt or curved- this is the most popular variety.Bhavani has given tutorial for this type.
2. In this type, the edges are pointed- the final effect looks different. I learn’t this type and later progressed to do both types.
3. In this type, the squares are filled like weave.
All kutch work patterns can be worked in type1 or type 2 methods. type 3 being a filling method can be used only for appropriate patterns.
From my next post , I ‘ll start with the most basic square and move on to small motifs, border,and finish with the working of the geometrical motifs posted on my blog.
