French Knot on Salwar

Here is the first dress in the embroidery section. This is my salwar embroidered with double knot. Some call this as French Knot too. Both these stitches are quite similar . Maybe thats why the confusion :)

   At first glance it looks as though some pearls are stitched on the salwar. Thanks to my mom who has stitched this to perfection !!!!

Chain Stitch Ganesha

There is no better way to start the embroidery section without seeking blessings from Lord Ganesha. This Ganesha is made with chain stitch.The mirrors stuck in between increase the beauty of this work.
