Here’s my New Year Gift for u , tutorial of the beautiful Kamal Kadai work…….
Before actually getting into the tutorial part lemme talk some basics of the kamal work …
Kamal Kadai Work – the basics…
Kamal Kadai , a beautiful thread magic from Indian Embroidery, originated from Andhra Pradesh. It has a 3D effect. Needle weaving is the basic stitching technique used. Any surface embroidery stitches can be used for embellishment with kamal kadai work.
A special kind of thread called Cone thread is used for kamal kadai work. It is a bit thick thread which gives a 3D effect for the work.
The problem with this thread is that it gets twisted easily…so be careful .
Any type of fabric can be used. I tried on all sorts of fabrics.
The thread and fabric is ready, now a pattern is needed. It is really easy to create a pattern for this work. But for the trial outs u need a pattern.
I got this pattern from internet, but now I couldn’t recollect the path I am sorry….
Thank u for that wonderful person who uploaded this pattern.
If u know the path please lemme know I ll post it here.
So these are basic needs of kamal kadai stitch.
Now be ready to start stitching, I ll be back with a detailed tutorial…
