Kalamkari Borders and Patches
Well Just the other day I made a brief visit to pick up some craft and fabric supplies. I found out that the Kalamkari, borders and patches are still in fashion. Wow! I still have some left over ones, which I wanted to attach to my saris.I think since they are still in fashion I can go ahead. Any way hand crafted items or hand looms are never out of fashion.
Here are some from my collections:
Ambari means carrying someone-usually a king. I have this border with me. I need to search my stash to see how much is left over.
I love these butterflies. A peculiar shade of green with yellow.
I also have some of these elephants. I think these should go along with the butterflies above. I have some plain cotton saris on which I can appliqué these.
When ever I buy my craft and fabric supplies or I go with my friends, i end up buying some things if they catch my fancy. But I don't have have any particular sari or dress in mind for these. Later on I think of using them. Some times some pieces or extra ones are left over.
I need to sort out my stash. But I feel list less and don't feel like doing any thing at all for now.
Keep any eye on my blog...more to come...
