It’s my own design of a large rose, in rose patterned fabric with a raw edge on the applique (i just zig-zaged around the edge).
To do the zig-zag edges, I used some very cool Gutermann metallic thread in a bright pink and an ocean blue and a multicoloured sulky Holoshimmer thread. These are mainly used for embroidery stitching, and I’d never used them before – but I will totally be using them again!
The metallic thread was a little hard to use as it was quite coarse and not smooth like normal thread. The Holoshimmer was like a shiny, smooth metallic thread with a small amount of stretch to it. I used this one for the leaves and it worked wonderfully.
Pick yourself up a reel when you’re next in spotlight and have a go!
