I am still embroidering away on Anita’s chikan work class, though I am falling a little behind since I’m busy with work. I’m very happy with how it is turning out. The fabric is very transparent. It looks ivory in the photo because I folded the fabric over several times behind the embroidered area.
Here is a closer view of the double back stitch embroidery.
From the back it looks like herringbone stitch. There are a lot of tails showing since I haven’t trimmed them all yet.
Here is one more photo from the front.
I think if I worked a long narrow design and then backed it with silk it would make a truly gorgeous scarf.
