Tatted Kurta

Hello, here is one more tatted edge around neckline of a kurta. Its been worked with Black Anchor tatting thread, tkt 40. 
               Its my first trial with bead tatting with this new shuttle, quite big to hold beads. Initially i had too much difficulty in working this, its not the pattern. Firstly, i thought, i chose a wrong thread size, which is very delicate and upon that its black, hard to visualize double stitch. With all these, i started with this new shuttle. 
            So, initially thought of giving up, but  no....... no...... i couldn't leave like that. It took around a month to finish. I went very very slowly, later got hold on it. Here is finish product.






                      Happy tatting !!!!!

Tatted Collar

Hi, i am back with one more tatting project, its a " Tatted Collar ". I always had a preconceived notion earlier, that tatting is difficult, ' i can't do it '. From this year i started to learn tatting and now i am addicted to it. Before starting this project, I doubted should i start ? Will i able to complete ?. I simply got drooled with this pattern which made me go go........ you can do it or you should do it !!!!.
               This pattern is from " Madura Coats Anchor Needle and Thread Magazine ", Vol 6. No 2. This tatted collar is been tatted with Anchor tatting thread, tkt 40. 



                  I blocked this project with mild starch powder spray making it fall in shape.  Happy Tatting !!!!!

Tatting

Hello there, my new passion, its " TATTING". Few months back one of my friend gave me tatting shuttle, showed basic double knot. Well thats how i started, although long back when i was in my school days my Mother's friend tried to teach me tatting, but then i was not so interested. Today i am happy to share some of my basic tatted motif arranged on a black kurta.

                      My first little project is this cute little butterfly in yellow ocher.

Chikankari Kurta with Hathkati Jali

Hi, i am back with one more chikankari stitch. The most beautiful part of chikankari is its Jali work ( open work ). And very often confused with Drawn thread. Jali work is nothing but "Pulled thread work " where warp and weft threads are teased apart to make small holes which are held together with minute stitches. Jali work are inspired by old buildings window specially from Jaipur.



              Its a white kurta with simple motif, a circle worked with three different ways using chikankari stitches.  First the left circle, center portion Phanda stitch encircled with two lines of keel stitch. Second circle, again center portion with Phanda stitch encircled with Hathkati jali, encircled with keel. Third the last circle worked with Hool stitch ( eyelet) encircled with Kaj ( Buttonhole) and later with keel stitch ( Roman/Romanian).




                     Hathkati jali is a row of square holes specially worked on boarder, center of flowers, veins of a leaf.
