Patch Work – Shakunthala

 Hi all 
How are you all ?
Before this also you have seen some patch work patterns with hand embroidery on this blog. I have mentioned that I will post few more patchwork designs. Here is the one, portrait of Shakuntala. Patchwork is one of the favourite types of embroidery of my Amma. She always enjoys doing these patterns. She used various shades of silk threads in this project, which enhanced the beauty of this art piece. Patchwork is done on cotton cloth as always.

The important stitches used are

  • stem stitch filling for hairs,
  • long and shirt for flowers,
  • Satin for dots white dots on the deer
  • Round buttonhole, herringbone, Long and short, stem and satin stitches are used on here attire. 
Hope you like this pattern, please let me know with your comments below.
