Friday Free Patterns

Oh my gosh! It is Friday again. I feel as if days are flying by. 

Well we had some showers, just enough to wet the surface soil. But still facing water crisis as there are no rains in the catchment areas to fill up our lakes or water channels from where we get our supply. We are all praying for rains. The present reserves of water may suffice for another few weeks. 

I am slowly working on my garden. Not much for now, as heavy rains will damage small plants. We need to go slowly, step by step.

Well here is this weeks pattern.



I have embroidered this motif on a handkerchief. The fabric is pure white cotton. I have used 6 strands cotton floss for embroidery- all the 6 strands through out. 

Stitches Used : Lazy Daisy for petals of the flower and the leaves, Outline or stem stitch for the circle in the center, filled up by Chinese Knots. You can stitch more leaves if you want. 

When stitching, first stitch the petals, starting at any point on the inner (green) circle out to the outer circle and filling up in a circular motion.Try to place the stitches, side by side without crowding or leaving space in between. Then stitch the green circle in the center and  fill it up with knots.

This pattern can be used on hand kerchiefs, blouses, children's frocks, kurtis or tunics, saris, hand and bath towels, table linen, kitchen linen and bed linen. 

Hope you like it.



For the first time, I have created this design on a computer, as it would be easy for you to use. I could not print it to test it. I hope the size is OK for you to use. I will  try it out my self and see. But do let me know if there is any problem so that I can correct it and update if need be.

Wow,this is so nice and well done. I always fail in tracing the pattern. Is there some way to do it easily. Dew small things I can manage but for big design am at loss.

Thanks a lot Vasudha. It is a bit difficult when we are tracing designs. That too big ones. We need a lot of patience. Even I too get impatient and sometimes miss some lines. :)
