    Very nice, if you do backwork on the outside giving it more definition it will look even better.

    Thanks Viji mam.
    It is a kind of matti cloth but more stiffer like canvas..........actually forgot the exact name for this kind of material.........comes in stiff off white/cream colour.
    Drew the outline using a black marker and worked the stitches on them.
