Some weeks ago an amazing girl sent me the cutest quilted project bag ever. It is super-sized and perfect to carry with me the Halloween Sampler together with the Q-Snap and all the supplies. This amazing girl is Heather from House Of A La Mode. She's a really nice girl and an excellent quilter. Together with my bag, she sent me a selection of DMC threads matching the colors of the bag.
I love designing patterns with metallic floss. They give an extra kick to the projects and a precious finish that regular floss can not give. But I also know that many stitchers, both beginners and experienced, hate to work with them.
The reasons? They snag and unravels. So I'd like to give you some hints to make your experience with metallic floss more enjoyable!
