Rajasthani piece of art

             During last summer we visited beautiful city – Jaipur. Apart from awesome architecture of Rajputs, I was amazed by vibrant folk culture of handy crafts and embroideries.
            The rich and colorful art of Rajasthan is the motivated for this wall hanging.

            I wanted to do on white cotton fabric so that I can use all the bright colors like red, blue, green and so on.  And for the first time I have tried mirror work and didn’t know how to fix mirrors. Thanks to internet and all craft bloggers for teaching me mirror work. Stitches uses are herringbone and chain filling.

             And finally here is the outcome, quite satisfactory, isn’t it?
