Kutch Lesson 3

                  Hi, we finished with first two lessons ie Lesson 1 and lesson 2, basic single diamond and continued diamond kutch work. In this tutorial we will learn "single extension kutch".

Single extension kutch

                 First drawn seven diamond, then leaving first diamond alternately draw one diamond over the base diamond as shown in above picture.

                     So lets start with base stitch,

                        After trying this successfully, do try double extension ie instead of drawing single diamond over base diamond, as we did in this tutorial draw two diamonds. Try it, all the best.

Gota Patti ( Lappe ka kaam )

Gota Patti work also known as " Lappe Ka Kaam ", the most famous work of  "Rajasthan" and origin of this craft. Gotapatti traditionally worked on temple idols, cloths on offering prayer, on royal outfits ( Mughal Era ). These outfits especially worn on auspicious days, weddings.

                  Earlier these Gota ( ribbons ) were made with pure gold and sliver, now a substitute Gota ribbons woven on power loom with cotton (warp) and metal (weft) threads. These Gota are cut into different shapes like circle, leaf ( sometimes small ribbons directly hemmed to enhance borders ) to create a pattern. Gota's  are also folded into shapes like rhomboid to create a border.

                 Gota are first stuck with fabric glue on fabric and then  appliqued using couching, back stitch, chain stitch, hem or running stitch. Gota  has tape at its backside for stiffness and also holds ribbon threads from fraying after cutting into shapes.

               Well here is its tutorial.

                        Take felt cloth, cut a circle ( required size).          Stitch it to base fabric leaving little space un-stitched for stuffing. Stuff some gauze with the help of a tooth pick and stitch remaining part to base fabric. Now start working Buttonhole stitch around the circle. Once finished with first row of buttonhole stitch, then from second row (of circle) start working buttonhole stitch picking each loop, without catching below felt cloth. After finishing 3 to 4 rows of buttonhole, from next row pick every alternate loop and later, the next row pick each loop. End at center, taking back working thread to backside of fabric and knot it.

                Once buttonhole stitch is worked on padded felt cloth, lets start with detached chain with Bullion stitch. Commence at center, work a chain (loop) piercing …
