Isn't this combination of floss beautiful?! I used these three when I stitched up this heart full of stars from the 4th of July pattern:
This was such a quick and simple project! It is a nice size too, here it is in my 6" hoop:
I used three different stitches for this project. The outline is done in Stem Stitch, always a great choice of a stitch for a curved line. The dots are French Knots and the stars are done in Roumanian Couching Stitch. I like the Roumanian Couching Stitch to fill shapes, plus it really shows off the color variations in the floss:
I am not sure what I am going to do with this...
I have a dark denim tote bag that it would look good on:
The floss I used was dmc perle cotton color variations. Here are the numbers:
I am transferring some more motifs from this pattern, I will be back to share those projects soon!
