In the blue one above, I have used a variagated thread for the first time. It's not the first time I have used this thread, just the first time that I have used it in these kinds of designs. It was interesting to see the result & how the stitch angle can change the appearance more so with the use of a variagated thread.
These ones have been done with just plain threads. It is also interesting to note the differences that occur when using different fabrics, polycotton just doesn't sit nice no matter how much stabilizer I use.
They all still need to be stitched up & finished ready for sale, but that is a walk in the park compared to the digitizing. Hopefully they will sell well.
