Aari embroidery - part 5

I will be using these silk threads for the salwar project which I'd shown in my previous post.

The basic stitch in aari embroidery is chain stitch.

Here the working thread will always be under the fabric .
To make a chain - Punch the needle from top,wrap the thread over hook,slightly rotate the needle and pull it up.
To start - Make a  waste knot.
To end - Make 2 loose chains, pull the first chain through second one tightly - a knot is made.
While punching, the needle should be perpendicular to the ground fabric otherwise you'll end up pulling warp or weft thread of the fabric.


I've worked all the stems and leaves in chain stitch.

Happy stitching!

Hopefully the one from ebay is the correct tool. Looks fun!

Hi Anita am new to this blog . I am trying to learn aari embroidery through online tutorials. I want to know which needle suits for this(needle no). In shops they have different size like no 11,8,7 and I have tried all but all were damaged the fabric and can't able to pull out the thread. Would you please share the needle details,how the hook look like and how to handle needle properly.
