Lesson 7- Chikan embroidery sal


Hi !
Let’s learn overcast stitch variation and satin stitch variation today.
1.The vein which is marked as ‘N’(refer stitch guide) has to be completed with overcast stitch variation.
2. The line with a tear drop shape which is marked as ‘M’ (refer stitch guide) has to be completed with satin stitch variation.

OVERCAST STITCH VARIATION

To practice this stitch trace design no.11 from the practice designs onto your doodle cloth, follow the instructions below and stitch.

                                           
Step 1: Complete the design with running stitch as shown in the image above.

                                                
Step 2: Cover the running stitch on the vertical line with tiny satin stitch as shown in the image above. The satin stitch has to be perpendicular to the running stitch.

                                          
Step 3: Cover the running stitch on the slanting lines on either side of the vertical line as shown in the image above.

                                           
Complete the vein which is marked as ‘N’(refer stitch guide) in the design with overcast stitch variation.

SATIN STITCH VARIATION

To practice this stitch trace design no.14 from the practice designs onto your doodle cloth, follow the instructions below and stitch.
Note: Use the same no. of strands for both running and satin stitch.

                                                
Step 1: Complete the design with running stitch starting from ‘a’ as shown in the image above.

                                                   
Step 2: Cover the vertical line with tiny satin stitch as shown in the image above. The satin stitch has to be perpendicular to the running stitch.

                                                  
Step 3: Cover the tear drop shape with satin stitch as shown in the image above.


Complete the line with a tear drop shape which is marked as ‘M’ (refer stitch guide) in the design with satin stitch variation.

So, what’s the difference between these two stitches?  
 1. In overcast stitch variation the size of the satin stitch is the same throughout the design but in satin stitch variation the size of the satin stitch varies.
2. Overcast stitch variation is always worked on either straight or curved line designs. Satin stitch variation is either worked on designs either with a vertical line and tear drop or vertical line and small circles.

Hope these instructions are clear. Please let me know if you think that I need to add more info.
Only one more lesson to go. I can’t believe that our class will come to an end next week....
Happy stitching!
Anita.
