I gave this embroidered yoke to my friend.it was hard choosing colours without seeing the background fabric, because I sometimes get inspired by seeing the fabric to be embroidered. I generally use colours similar to vegetable dye ,which is important aspect of kalamkari fabrics, to work , but this time it was different

An acquaintance of mine wanted an embroidered yoke in cream. She said that her cream based kalamkari fabric needed a multi coloured embroidered yoke. Since I had not seen the fabric, the colours were chosen on the basis of matching it with cream/gray/black.
The embroidery was done with, chain, herringbone filling, back stitch and double cross stitches. Starting with dark blue thread-
