Free Online Kasuti Embroidery Tutorial Sample 1.3 - Closed Design
If you're here today, it means you've you didn't have any major hassles with turning corners in the previous sample. You are ready to learn how to work a closed motif. This is the last sample of this session..
1. Copy the design to your graph paper and transfer it to fabric.
2. Start at point '1' and continue working using the numbers to guide your path until you reach '48'.
3. Now for the return trip. Point '1' in the forward journey, becomes point 'a' in the return trip. Bring the thread up at 'a' and follow the path laid out by the letters and finish at the point indicated by the arrow (point 2 in the forward journey).
Try working the same pattern using a single colour.
Let me know what you think of this. If you have doubts, leave a comment. Also post pictures of your work in your blog and send me the link.
We'll end this session with an assignment - The Serpent Coil Border. It's simple enough. So, I am not giving a step by step.
Let me know how you are doing.
