Embroidery designs

These are the some multipurpose embroidery designs. You may use them as per your creativeness.  I have used these designs for bed sheet, toran or door hanging and table cloth for kids which are posted already on this blog. In future I will try to bring some more useful designs.

Peacock with long and short stitch

The major part of this peacock pattern is done with long and short stitch. This stitch can be beautifully used in filling especially for blending of two or more colors.

In one of my earlier posts also you have observed peacock design in a wall hanging. In both patterns similar stitches and color combinations are used. But the present one is smaller design. So it has not taken much time to finish.

Lazy Daisy Tutorial

This time I planned to post some tutorial about hand embroidery. Hence  starting with easier stitch Lazy daisy. This stitch is associated with chain stitch family that’s why known as “detached chain” stitch also. Lazy daisy is best suited for petals. You may see this stitch on a saree in one of my previous posts.

    Bring out the thread from back  side of the  fabric at point “A”.
 Re insert the needle very close to “A , and bring out at “B” loop the tread around the needle. And pull the needle.

 Insert the needle outside the petal. 

     Here are the some  lazy daisy flowers.

Rajasthani lady - Machine Embroidery

This time I am posting one of oldest pattern of our collection. This piece of art is done by my mother long back. This design is a blend of machine embroidery with patch work. This Rajasthani lady portrait is my favorite one, that’s why preserved it so carefully. Hope you also like this.
