Contemporary Kantha work


The space in between ...


For this small project I used my home experimented & naturally dyed fabric, and a very pretty tie dye silk scarf I found at the thrift store.

I also attempted to make a kantha worked flower out the left over material from my tea cosy project. It still needs a little bit more grooming;  I was not able to attach the petals properly.


The decorative beaded disc is from india which I sewed to a stuffed felt centre. I do have some green saree material from which I want to make a suitable leaf(or leaves) for it..

Now, I have a whole twig branch to fill in with all different crafts.


Thank you so much for stopping by today,

till next time,
