The Applique

Found the photo in my archives. It was the first time I had tried the applique technique.

This turned out pretty decent despite having an old singer machine that refused to co-operate! Also, this was one of the few projects that I completed in less than 2 hours!!!! (This happens once in a blue moon!! seriously.)

I had cut the design of the butterfly and stitched it with the zigzag stitch using silk embroidery thread.

The polka dot fabric was from 'Dandi-Bandi' (Also called Shrirampura or Ramchandrapura... this is near Sujata talkies near Rajajinagar. Its also called Chindi market!) The plaid fabric was from Shivajinagar. It was leftover from another dress.
