Stitch of the Week: Fancy
The Fancy stitch is a stunning decorative stitch that is very effective when using two different threads. It looks especially good when used on waterfalls, rivers, paths, gardens, mountains, patios, porch lattices, victorian gingerbread house trim, wallpaper, borders, and clothing. Consider using an overdyed thread with a complimentary solid in Flair, perle, stranded cotton or silk.
For a dramatic effect, combine a metallic with silk, cotton or wool as shown below.
For a shimmery effect, combine Frosty Rays with Flair as shown below.
