Embroidery materials

These are the different type of embroidery materials from my collection...
today blogger is behaving crazy. I could not able to arrange the picture properly..                                                          
antique kundans which can easily be fixed on to the fabric by stitching

glass beads
wooden beads and mirrors

metal colour beads




pearls and cutdana beads

rayon threads,embroidered patches,rimzim thread 

stitch remover(yellow one inside the big hoops) is a must in your embroidery is easy to remove the stitches without damaging to the fabric
this is the picture of my saree in progress..this is the way I assemble  different embroidery materials while stitching..
# Always fix the fabric to the hoop in such a way that the screw comes to the left side so that we can avoid the thread struck with the screws while stitching

designs traced on tracing paper and holes pricked all along the design so that we can transfer the design on to the fabric by chaapa method..these papers are reusable

design books easily available in bangle stores/craft shops

pompon maker

different  embroidered borders available in market..some comes as set(9 meters) and some we can buy in meters ..easy job..:)
