My Own Designer Dupatta - 2

I bought this cotton salwar material from Chennai.  Top & bottom materials were fully designed with mango motifs and small flower motifs in maroon and orange cotton thread. Dupatta was plain with beautiful border.
 So I did some small motifs.Whatever stitches were in the dress I did same.One is  running stitch and in the middle  i did single Double Knot Stitch/Palestrina Stitch using orange colour thread.  Now its looking good.

Dupatta before doing embroidery.

After doing Embroidery. Small motifs here and there.

My own designer dupatta 1

Hi friends,

How are you?

This dupatta is designed by me.

I bought a  purple cotton Kurti material to match with white patiala pant, but  I couldn't find a matching dupatta.  I was not interested to go for a white dupatta.
So thought to design a dupatta.
So I bought plain white cotton material and  requested tailor to stitch the remaining kurti material on four sides of the white dupatta really he did a good job. But Inside it was fully plain. So I planned to do some embroidery and patch work. From that remaining cloth i cut some circles and using hemming stitch just did the patchwork ( circles ) and did  running stitch to connect the  circles.
Here and there I did some spiral designs with chain stitche . 
Finally I got a beautiful designer dupatta ( Isn't it beautiful?).
