Embroidered Kurta

I got this kurta stitched a few years back.It looked very dull as it didn't have any print.So I decided to make it a little attractive and this was the final look.

I put a border of sequins at the neck and made a half flower at the center.

Same way at the bottom also I used the sequins, silver colour zari thread and silk thread to make flowers.

A closer view of the embroidery.

After doing all these I saw that the body was still very plain so I sew some sequins,scattered on the body.

The silver zari border around the flower and the small branches have been made by aari work.The flowers are filled by making many bullion stitches.

Satin flower

This flower was made by me using the following things.

a satin ribbon (seal both ends by putting it above the candle flame)

a needle

matching thread

matching or contrast kundan stone or beads(for the centre of the flower)

Here is the instruction on how this flower was made.

Start making the flower by making a bow shape with the ribbon.This photo shows the back side of the flower.

Completed flower front view.

Now take a needle and thread and put a stitch to hold in place the bows forming the flower.

Stitch a bead or stone in the center.
I have used a stone to put in the center of the flower.It has two holes as in buttons,so I could easily stitch it.In the whole process instead of stitching,it can be sticked using a hot glue gun.

Use of flower
I used this flower to make a label to be put on top of a gift.

I simply took one old card.Cut a square from the area where there were no prints and sticked the flower in one corner.You can write your name and stick this label on your gift.
