    We can use mosquito net material which are sold in calico show room,or you can also use matty cloth which is avarilable in most of the craft shops

    Thanks Vani.I will try for mosquito net. But when I tried matty cloth,the stitch got loosened as I removed the strands after the embroidery is done.How can I rectify that? Any suggestions.....

    I did a few designs in a different method. It came out very well.draw design on a graph paper.Trace it on the fabric with yellow or white carbon paper and then stitch the design.Try it and see.

    One strand of thread is usually used for this type of embroidery . used inch graph.one small square represents one stitch.I have posted one image that I had collected from the web.
