Embellish Your Fabric with Rangoli Art Using Colorful Threads


Rangoli art is a traditional form of Indian folk art that involves creating intricate designs on the floor using a variety of materials, including colored rice, sand, and flowers. However, did you know that you can also use this technique to embellish fabric? In this article, we will show you how to create a beautiful Rangoli-inspired design on a cotton fabric using colorful threads.


To begin, you will need a piece of cotton fabric, a piece of paper, a pencil, and a glitter pen. First, sketch out your design on paper. For this design, we are using a combination of small flowers and one large flower with six green leaves. Once you have your sketch, use the glitter pen to trace it onto the fabric. This will serve as a guide for stitching.


Next, you will need a variety of colored threads. For this design, we used green DMC thread for the leaves, deep pink and light pink thread for the flowers, and black thread for the petal border. To create the leaves, we used a Lazy Daisy stitch. To create the veins on the leaves, we used a straight stitch. For the main vein, we used a Bullion knot.


The central flower is made with a satin stitch and used deep pink color thread. The small flowers are also made with satin stitch and used light pink color thread. All the flower's petal borders are made with an outline stitch and used black color thread. The flower center is yellow and used French knot for the stitch.


Once the stitching is complete, you can add any additional embellishments you like. For example, you could add beads or sequins to the center of the flowers or around the edges of the leaves.

This Rangoli-inspired design is not only beautiful but also unique and can be used for different purposes like cushion cover, table cover, curtain, etc. It's a great way to add a touch of traditional Indian culture to your home decor. Not only that, but it's also a fun and creative way to express yourself through your sewing projects.


In conclusion, Rangoli art is a beautiful and versatile form of folk art that can be used in a variety of ways, including on fabric. Whether you're a beginner or an experienced stitcher, there's always something new to learn and explore with this traditional art form. Give it a try and see what beautiful designs you can create!
