Contemporary Kantha

Here is a little contemporary Kantha (pronounced kan-ta) work. Instead of slavishly trying to get all the running stitching even you let them wander a bit. Its also worked around on a diamond shape. This piece is stitched on Nuno felt which I have to say is beautiful to stitch on. I made the felt with a friend and having never done a wet felt project before this has worked out really well.

This is a centre to a book pouch designed by Barbara Mullan, a diva of  Indian Embroidery. She looks at the works of Indian embroiderers for inspiration rather than to copy. This centre square is surrounded by other elements but as yet I’ve only stitched a small part of it.
