Kantha SaL

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAI am still working both my hand traced Kantha pattern and the one I printed.  It is all good practise.                The top photo is the traced one.  The lower is printed in each photo.

I filled the two top dots (showing on the right side) with Kantha filling stitch, using 2 strands of DMC black thread.

The 3 flowers used the tara booti stitch with 2 strands DMC purple.

The crown flower had Kantha filling stitch petals and this time I used 2 strands of Cottage Garden variegated thread.  I wasn’t sure that repeating the outer pink of the lower flower was right.. I thought it might be too heavy.

 

The green calyx has been done with Weaving or Stacked Kantha filling.

and the lower black curlicues and green stem.  A very visible difference between the hand traced and printed silk fabric.

  1. Looks pretty! I agree with you about the pink for the bud. I think a lighter pink or variegated purple would also work .

    • Thank you Anita, I’m happy you agree. In future I will gather All my threads, before I begin stitching.

  2. Absolutely gorgeous Maureen – such a spectacular fish 🙂 x

    • Thanks Barbara.

  3. So lovely, Maureen. I’m happy to see this work.

    • Thank you JoWynn. I don’t think I will be happy unless I make a 3rd attempt at getting it right. It is all good practise.
