    I ❤ embroidery . . . TAST Shisha Stitch- Shisha stitch is one of my favourites. For the sample above I couldn't find any mirrors in my stash so I decided to make do with what I could find. Beer bottle tops flattened out, a one rupee coin and a button.Shisha stitch is also used quite extensively in certain regions and communites in India. So I thought I'd include some images of Shisha stitch done on garments and samplers in my collection. ~By Maya Matthew

      Normally used to attach little mirrors to fabric. Improvised subsitutes let you practice the stitch anyway.
