Hello friends..........the demand for marigold work just went up.
So heres the tutorials for all of u.......photos r not that clear but i think it
can be understand to make a marigold for yourself.
Well, this woollen work can be used for the wall hangings, curtains,bags
and i think in many other things..as i know my friends are having very
creative minds and will come up with their new unique idea to use the
marigold work.
And yes... the name marigold is given by my friend, Sadala Lakshmi.

I am not that good at writing the tutorials but am giving it a try.

So here it is........................... First, make a round circle, size can be
of your choice..the ring to hold the cloth must be of smaller size so that
you can hold it properly. You have to start from the outer circle towards
the inner center point. The pictures are quite clear for all of u to understand
and yes its the same cloth, the camera is behaving mischievous and
changing the colours. And i have also added some variation as how you
can use the marigold like putting a mirror in center or a bead.
And the last picture is of marigold with petals made of detached button hole.
Note : This stitch can be made by machine too.
VIDEO for the loop making can be viewed at here

    Sonie,loved the marigold and the instructions are very clear too. I just wanted to know if the flower will unravel if I put the fabric its done on, in the washing machine.

    hello mita, the stitch have to be very firm for the work if its not so it may unravel in the machine, but not if u are hand washing it.
