I have made a pattu pavadai for my daughter for her birthday. I haven't learnt tailoring much, hardly I went to a tailoring class for one month when I was doing my post graduation. With that little knowledge, I started stiting This is my 7th one in almost 6 years. I was very happy when she wore this. one more special thing is I stitched it in one day (not continuously, but along with my regular duties) but when I finished it was 12'o clock midnight, the next morning as soon as she got up I gave it to her as a surprise, She just hugged me and said I Love You Mom. Bless her.
This is the new scarf I've done for my brother. Hope he likes it. I got this pattern from Knitting daily. It was designed By Ann Budd and originally published on Knitting daily, Fall 2004. Thank you Ann Budd. this is what she say's about this scarf pattern “I love long, narrow scarves. For this scarf I cast on just enough stitches to work a single balanced repeat of the Double Basket Pattern from Barbara Walker’s Treasury of Knitting, and repeated the 18-row pattern until I used up two balls of yarn. The interplay of horizontal and vertical ribs produces an undulating, curved effect that adds complicated texture to the relatively simple stitch pattern.” Its a basket weave pattern and reversible scarf. Its a very easy pattern though it seems to be tough. Here is the link for this pattern. You need to signin to view the pattern.
This is a designer scarf I made for my friend. Hope shelikes it This scarf was designed by Phoebe for Jimmy Beans Wool. Thanks Phoebe. Here is the link to the pattern. Just by seeing this scarf it seems to be a twisted wire. But its beauty comes out only when it is worn.

I have made this hat and scarf for my daughter for this winter. she loved it very much. Everyday she wore it to school.
I have made the same scarf but with plain wool but that was not so fancy. so I tried with furr wool, and it came out very well. The previous scarf of the same pattern is listed here.
This is the closeup view of the scarf.
My daughter has worn the hat, she is very cosy in that.

This saree was my first project, around 8 years back. this is a simple motif stitched with lazy daisy and stem stitch. I used two strands of anchor cotton thread for the stems. And grey woollen thread for the flowers. The middle of the flower is made of a golden chumki stitched in yellow thread. This was my college uniform saree.
The saree has altogether 18 motifs.

This is my recently completed project. I started it around 6 months back. I couldn't take the photograph of the whole scarf. This is one end of the scarf. The scarf is decorated with tatted motifs and tassels work. The base colour of the scarf is baby pink and the motifs are made in dark red anchor pearl cotton threads(size 40).
The motif is very simple five petaled flower. The whole scarf has around 80 flowers stitched in regular intervals.
The middle of the flower is made with golden coloured chumki and a small glass bead.
The tassels work made the scarf more beautiful.
