Last week I bought a shalwar kurta dress material,the kurta is plain and shalwar is of bandhni print.
Now whenever I have a plain kurta I just think of doing embroidery either hand or machine,but first shot is always for hand embroidery.But the million dollar question arises which embroidery should be done.Then I decided to do fly stitch as it is very simple stitch without much effort.
How to do fly stitch
1). Bring out the needle from 1 and insert it at 2 and bring it out from 3 while keeping the thread under the needle.Hope you understand.
2).After taking out needle from 3 insert it again at 4 to make a tail as in the letter “Y”.
You can see the red thread making its way from middle of the stitch.I have interlaced the fly stitch.That’s quite simple just take out the needle from 3 and pass the needle underneath the TAIL of the stitch taking care that you don’t pluck the fabric and go to another tail the process of up and down goes on.
Hope you find my fly stitch tutorial easy to follow.
Love “N” Gratitude 🙂
