Saree Embroidery - Kantha Work

 Hello Readers!!
Today I am sharing one more recent project of my grandma. She embroidered this Saree (5 yard fabric) with Kantha Work as a gift for my mum's 50th Birthday!!
Let the pictures do all the talking.

Embroidered Sarees - Festival Special


Dear Readers, 

I was never a fan of wearing Saree's and always thought embroidered Saree to be too tacky and shiny. But when I saw these Sarees I just had to buy them. I love the superior quality of the fine embroidery and also the fact that its suttle and does not have too much bling. 

The mustard yellow Saree has fine Kashmiri hand embroidery which is unique to every Saree. 
Do share your favourite handicrafts too 

Happy Crafting!

Hand Embroidered Saree - Grandma's Creation

Dear readers,
Today I would like to share a beautiful handmade gift which is very precious for me . My grandma embroidered this Saree and gifted me for my first Diwali after our wedding. So it has a very special for me.

My Grandma learnt special embroidery stitch "Kantha work" and she immediately tried it on this Saree. she also adorned all the flowers with kundan (artificial rhinestones). I love the small even stitches across the design. 
The embroidery is on the skirting of the Saree and pallu. I like the small flower motif is used on pallu and rest of the Saree is left plain. This gives it a very delicate look. 

She even embroidered the blouse sleeves for me. 

I will share many more Saree embroidered my grandma in coming months.. Do let me know your views, suggestions

Happy Crafting....!!!

Embroidery Table Cloth

In my recent trip to India I was able to capture all my old craft project through my lens and decided to share with you all! 

It was nostalgic to see all the various craft projects I created and recollecting all the stories associated with it was best way to spend some time at my mum's place :)

This embroidery piece was made in 1997  and still being used as table cloth in mum's kitchen :D

The cloth's colour is faded and can't be revived much through photo shop either :P , but the embroidery is still pretty. 

In 90's all schools were suppose to teach some craft subject for all ages from year 5 to year 10. This is where I learnt most of my embroidery stitches, and this piece was my final submission for my craft subject in 1997. So it has nice classroom memories attached to it and hence very close to my heart. 

Do you have any special projects which have a nostalgic value added ? Do share with me by leaving a link in the comment box.

My grandma is in her late 70's and loves learning new things even at this age! She recently started following my blog (well her neighbour shows her the blog on her laptop once everyweek) and she showed interest in being part of this blog. She's a very verstalie artists, she is great cook, a very well eshtablished writer in Marathi, a good speaker and leader( head of senior citizen institute) and pursues crafts in her spare time. Me and my mum learnt the knitting and crochet from her and now she still learns new things and passes on the knowledge to us. 

She learnt ribbon embroidery 3-4 years ago and since then has gifted me with 4 embroidered sarees. She made this one for my mum. I will post some more photos of my sarees later in the year.

Traditional Wall Hanging - Unique Gift

Hello again,

One of my friends mother gifted me these unique wall hangings from India. This workmanship is speciality of Gujarat and Rajasthan states. 

I love the play of colours and intricate detailed bed work makes this artpiece very unique. 

Close  Look - smaller square

It can also be used as cushion covers. But as I don't have cushion to fit these sizes, I use it as wall decor.
close look - bead work
close look - abla work / mirror work
