Did you like Pachis work? Iam sure most of the experienced stitchers out there would've guessed how to stitch it. But we need to think about the first timers too,right? So here's a photo tutorial for Pachis work.
Step 1 :
Draw the pattern.For a large fabric,repeat this or any variation of this pattern throughout.You can make lines,triangles,squares,square inside a ladder like box etc - all depends on your imagination.
Start from one end.You've to stitch one half of the cross here.
This is how it looks now.
Completing the cross on the return journey.
Another cross stitch done horizontally.
Come up at the center.Stitch a small cross stitch to tack the previous stitches down .
Repeat this for the entire pattern .
This completes Pachis work.Wish I had a fabric to show you the completed work.There's nothing new in the type of stitches used.Infact, most of the Indian embroidery uses common stitches known to the world-it is how they are incorporated into the fabric that makes the Indian Embroidery styles unique.
Hope this was useful,
Love,Luck and sunshine,
