Rajasthani Piece of Art

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

I saw different varieties of beautiful art pieces there and decided to try one of them. As I didn’t have a design for the same, so draw this pattern using some small motifs.


            I wanted to do on white cotton fabric so that I can use all the bright colours 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 the internet and all craft bloggers for teaching me mirror work. Stitches uses are herringbone and chain filling.


             And finally here is the result, pretty satisfactory, isn’t it?
