I received a gift from somebody and lo ! it was a bed sheet and I needed it badly since my present bed sheets had worn out and now , when i spread it over the bed it was a plain bedsheet although it was of good material of bombay dyeing but was too plain , but was pleasing to look at , it was light green in colour.
My maid servant ( our best supporter ) told me ' Didi , bahut plain hai : aap print kar do ' ( Madam , it is very plain :you print it ) . I had very little time at that moment and my inlaws were expected in a months time so I had to do it fast . I decided to do embroidery on it .it should fill up the bedsheet but should not take much time.
I went to the shop where they print the bedsheets before we start making the embroidery . I selected the design best suited to the room and would give a very good getup to the room .They did the printing and gave it in 2 days .meanwhile I checked my stock and took up all the threads , frame and needle and kept them ready.
I used various stitches while making the embroidery like long and short ( bharwan kadhai) , chain stitch and straight stitch . Using the various stitches , I made the various flowers , leaves , stems , buds etc using colors which made the design attractive .I made same design on Pillow covers.
Everyone appreciated the bed sheet . The getup had changed completely and it was very attractive now There were very favorable comments from in laws and some suggestions from my close friends . I always try to improve in the next design and also await your comments .
