Chikan embroidery



One of my pending projects was Anita’s chikankari embroidery SAL.Although at first, I wanted to sew it on  a dress, after finishing the embroidery I felt reluctant to use it (didn’t want to spoil such a beautiful embroidery).Now, I’m keeping it at a safe place to be used as a reference for future chikankari projects.


I must admit that I was in a hurry to finish this project that maybe I didn’t practice enough.My favourite stitches are the overcast stitch and the wave stitch filling.The latter stitch was easier when practiced on a squared pattern but confusing when worked on a heart shaped pattern.I made a mistake and had to rework it.The stab stitches really play an important role to create a wave like pattern at the back.This class was a wonderful learning experience.Thanks again, Anita.I hope your next class will be on beaded chikankari.Ever since I started this class, I have been searching the internet for free chikankari patterns but couldn’t find one.If someone knows, please share it with me.
