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.

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.























Buttonhole Twist

My previous post on Rose mania, i had worked Buttonhole stitch with raised effect at the center of  design.




               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 …
