Dear readers on this blog you have observed many patterns of patchwork portraits done by my mom. Inspired by her beautiful work I have also thought of trying patchwork. I know that I can't match with her neatness in hand embroidery but still attempted one of dancing lady pose of patchwork and posting the same here.
always background is done with cotton fabric. I used very simple stitches like
filling buttonhole, herringbone, feather stitch, satin stitch, chain stitch and
couched trellis stitch. Her saree is filled with random cross stitch. Hairs are
done with stem stitch filling. Let me know your opinion on my first
attempt of patchwork.
In my upcoming posts surely you will get tutorials of all above-mentioned stitches.
