Aari 'n' beads

This paisley is a part of an aari  embroidery design which I’m working right now.

                                                  
Hope I’m not irritating y’all by showing different paisleys….

Have a happy weekend wherever you are!
Happy stitching!
Anita.

Very nice...but why is it irritating...I love paisley designs

Anita said...

Vaheeda,I'm using two strand here.
The threads might split if the needle is not placed properly.

Oh, dear, no, I love paisleys - they're what got me interested in Indian embroidery in the first place! And beads . . . magpies are famous for collecting small bright things such as beads, y'know!
Plus, I have a book of chikan designs (it's in storage right now, so I can't remember the name) collected by Pradumna and Rosalba Tana, and it's really interesting to see how the finished embroideries look, and think about how to apply it to their line drawings.

No way irritating. I hope to see lots more.
This is so lovely Anita and very different from the Chikan.

hi mam,
very nice to see all your creative works. im very interested in learning Aari embroidery.can u plz explain me the types of stitches in Aari with detail

Pratima Kapoor said...

Such a beautiful work. Its not easy to do aari work, need lots of practice before one gets hang of it. I had hired a teacher to learn this art but did not persue further. I really really appreciate your beautiful and hard work.

Anita said...

Thanks Pratima. YES,need lots of practice to get it correct.

your site got my attention, your aari work is gorgeous. I was wondering if I can work miniature scale using Aari, what do you think?

Hello,
it seems my comment is lost in cyperspace :).
here's my question again: I am into making miniatures, scale 1:12.
do you think I could make my mini embroidery in Aari, would that be do-able?
Love your site
Gee

Anita said...

@ Gee - Thanks a lot for visiting.
I think mini embroidery in aari is do-able but choosing a pattern and thread will be quite an interesting challenge.If you could e-mail with more details about what sort of designs you do the most then I'd happily do all the experiments and let you know if it works on the scale you've mentioned above.
