Saree Design with Lace and Screen printing

This is again an attempt to repair my sister's saree which was spoiled by me. I don't know everytime I take her saree, either the design won't come good or it will be spoiled. :(.

Its a lovely silk saree with unique color combination, light bottle Green with Gold border. While giving this my sister warned  me many times not to spoil this saree.
In spite of all her warning I spoiled this. I tried with machine embroidery. At that time I had not learned  the machine embroidery properly. Uhh look at my guts. The result was as below, very bad very bad!
Somehow I had to repair this, otherwise my sister would demand 10 times more than this saree. So to cover my fault, I used brocade cloth and laces. Made the lace with brocade cloth and attached along the border. And Brown and Rust colored borders on the both the sides of the brocade  border. Of course, screen printing is best method to make the cloth beautiful and hide the odds! Painted the border with Paisley designs with Gold and Green color. 
And on the Pallu, big Paisley designs in Gold and Green pearl color.
I was quite happy with  the designs. But my sister, same old comment "You always use my saree for practising. By spoiling my sarees you are becoming perfect!". TRUE! :)

Recently could not work on crochet. Soon share about a colorful crochet afghan .

Until then,
Love , laugh and live the life to the fullest,
