Kutch Work using open cretan

                This is going to be my first post . To start with India's one of  traditional embroidery          

                                                                 "KUTCH WORK" .
                Well i do kutch work in two method,
                    one is using " herringbone stitch" as base stitch (interlaced herringbone)
                    second one is using "open cretan stitch" .(interlaced open cretan)
                       In this post , will talk about kutch work  using "open cretan stitch" as base stitch. 


                 Kutch work done using open cretan stitch as base stitch gives very sharp, pointed, fine finish. I personally like this method for dresses, clutches, saree......


 Kutch work usually done with bright coloures gives rich look .

         I always thought of doing  kutch work with no filler stitch around, only pure kutch work . So here is my first experiment with design,

              This i got inspired by traditional embroidery "karnatak kashida", in which "gopur" design is famous.   So here is outcome of gopur design in kutch work.

     In my next post , will talk about kutch work using herringbone as base stitch.
