Pillow cover

After completing my embroidery classes in 2008 , I did this Machine embroidery using Satin Stich pattern on an automatic USHA machine for a cushion cover..
Still not tht gr8 but I like it..

Zardosi and stone work on my Yellow dress...
Instead of sticking stones , preferred to sew them with thread.. for more strength and finish.

Still incomplete.. the center part.. Will finish it by next weekend :)

Zardosi stich

These are few zardosi stitches, done using golden thread(strong one ) and tikkis and beads with special Zardosi needle..
For this stich need to use little transparent cloth, as we pull thread from bottom of cloth by inserting the thread.. The thread is not put in the needle.. Its similar to how cobller stich :)
When done without any tikkis and all , it looks like Chain stich.
