There’s nothing like a handmade rakhi that your brother is sure to love and appreciate (and not take off his hand, too easily).
Ankita Kohli makes beautiful rakhis with the prettiest scraps of traditional punjabi textile. And we obviously love them!
Things You Will Need:
Needle and thread
A base for the bottom
The cowrie shell ones were simple but unique. Not like a bulky traditional rakhi these look edgy enough for little bratty brothers ☺️
Make a three way braided yarn base and sew on the cowrie shell
For the others cut out the embroidered patches
Glue it on the base
Sew it on the thread
We love how the rakhis make the balance between subtle and festive!
Material Girls’ Tip: You could also use zardosi embellishments for a grandiose rakhi that sets eyeballs on fire.
