Dussera over and now Diwali comes 🙂
And Here are some more sling bags, which I embroidered before and stitched recently
I have fallen in love with all my sling bags so I’m finding it emotional to part with them. I made these for gifting, but the effort and the thrill I got in making them, I dont feel like gifting it to others.
But obviously I cannot use them all, so there they go to my relatives and friends.
Now my wish is reduced to the hope they love and appreciate the sling bags.
Now coming back to the embroidery details.
The Cathedral window design is from my Kantha embroidery kurta but embroidered in Herringbone stitch.
The other Sikku Kolam design is stitched using Italian knot stitch which I learnt from Anitha’s blog here
This is again a simple mirror embroidery with some embellishments.
This is a Sikku Kolam design stitched with Chain stitch. I ran out of the handle fabric and so used a left over material (from a skirt).
After making, I loved the contrast.
