Sindhi Taka Design-3

embroidery pattern for sindhi taka

Doing Sindhi Embroidery is my favorite hobby, after starting any motif or pattern, I try to complete it as soon as possible in order to see the final results.
Unfortunately we have very few books and limited material on net on sindhi embroidery or kutch work. Some times drawing lines and trying to make a pattern give a outstanding results, while watching TV and trying to make new pattern gave existence to the raw draft of this motif.
This motif can be used on front or back of any top or kurti, cushion cover, sari or dupatta or even in bed sheet by using 7-9 circles in different manner.  This is upto you how you use this.
In order to trace any motif on black or dark shade colored cloth yellow carbon is used. In this pattern I have not used tracing simply drawing circles and filling petals made the design.
Description and Instructions for the pattern are as follows:

In the inner most circle round pattern of sindhi stitch is used. A complete tutorial on this is in my earlier post
round pattern in sindhistitch.
Leaves are filled with satin stitch.

Out lines of the petals are made with anchor's golden color thread.
The outer most border which is made with purple color, for its instructions please refer to my earlier post Sindhi stitch borders.
Usually tracing is not required for border or any motif in any sindhi stitch pattern, but constant practice is required. If you are new to it, you can trace it for  ease. In order to get the trace of entire design, use print button of this post and print the picture in gray scale or black and white, you will get the trace that will be helpful to you.

Traingle Pattern : Tutorial on Sindhi Stitch

Sindhi stitch looks very beautiful, though it follows a series of geometrical patterns but after filling it gets a beautiful embroidery look. It is also know as kutch work or kutch embroidery. Traditionally sindhi women do this without any tracing, it looks difficult but once you are familiar with the steps it is easy to do it without any trace of design, now a days for an ease traces are available in some embroidery books. For your ease I have also prepared some sindhi stitch sketches for this particular traingle pattern, with their help you will easily understand the pattern and its 4 different stages and by following them step by step after 3-4 attempts(if it is new to you) you will be able to make the same pattern.

Before proceding further I will suggest you to take a look at my previous post on sindhi stitches especially
Sindhi stitch guide,
Borders II,
sindhi stitch border on kurta
all these patterns will be helpful to you to understand this much better.
This pattern is slightly complex, I have to spend time in learning this, if you carefully see this is an extension of my post on border on sindhi stitch in kurta.
This traingle can be usde as a border to by attaching one by one, I will show its illustration in my upcoming post, hence this is a tutorial I am showing you a single segment you can use this at various embroidery projects according to your need. This pattern comprise of 4 stages:
Step -1 lowest row of traingle

Step-2 upper part of traingle

step-3 filling of traingle

step-4 filling of lowest row of traingle.

 This pattern moves from left to right(step-1)
Right to left(step-2)
left to right(step-3)
right to left(step-4)

I have written in my first post each &  every pattern ends at the point from where it had began. Starting point and ending point both are same in sindhi embroidery.
