You might be already knowing, Still I give the address of her blog here
Today I want to share about one of the Embroidery Stitches. This is Muvvala Kuttu or Anklet Stitch as known in my State of
As you know a Fly stitch is worked by working of a V-shaped loop which is then tied down by a vertical straight stitch. A Braided Fly stitch is worked by lapping of each stitch over one another to form a pattern of “Y”.
The procedure is explained in the step by step stitches given below:
Fig 1 Start at A and make a loop to B
Fig-2At C take out the needle from beneath the fabric and make a slant stitch –slanting to right- to D to tie down the loop
Now start the next loop from the center of first loop- at E and make a loop to F
While making the tying stitch for the second loop from G, enter the needle back at D
The next loop should start at B and so on.
I have worked it on Matty cloth to give a clear picture. But this stitch can be worked on any fabric.
This is another example of the Stitch I have worked, using beads and Kundan. The border is worked out with Purple colour thread and I have simply inserted the green thread on three sides underneath the “V”s formed by the tying stitches. In the center I have worked a circular version of the stitch.
These are some of the variations of the Stitch I worked
The first is the straight line. This is very simple.
The second one is the Square 1-where I have worked the stitch in the corners and filled in with detached chain and straight stitches.
Square 2-I have worked the stitch in opposite sides to get the diamond shape, with a bead in the center.
Square 3 is similar to 2 above, but with a detached chain stitches.
Straight line 2- after the working the stitches, a row of detached fly stitches has been worked in orange thread
Round 1-stitches have been worked in circular shape to form a flower
Flower 1- three stitches have been worked to form a petal
I have experimented with the stitch. But need to work out other variations which have come to mind. I will post them soon after I finish them. Why don’t you try it and see if you can come out with some other variations of the stitch. I would like to know your suggestions and comments.
Please make some time in going through my blog and leave your valuable suggestions, comments which would help me in improving my self.
