Embroidered neck design

This is a paisley neck design I embroidered on a tunic recently.

I chain stitched the outlines of the paisley design and used green and cream color sequins and mirrors to decorate the design.

Completed design:

These are the materials I used.

Applique work

Hi friends,

I missed you all for quite some time. I was busy with my office work during last month. Could not find time to update my blog.

I would like to share some images of my first ever hand applique embroidery on a cushion cover.

Applique is very easy to do and is not time consuming.

I did not plan beforehand to take step-by-step photos when I did this project. I will try to explain applique work with step-by-step photos and instructions in my next applique project.

I used the needle turn method to stitch this appliqued flower.
