Project 1 Segment 6

Well, I used the satin floss with some holoshimmer Sulky.  It is my strong opinion that the two combined, or adding the metallic makes it look messy.  I took three shots, you be the judge.

 A side angle to see the sparkle, but even at this angle it looks, at least to me, messy.
 A more straight on shot still showing the sparkle, at this angle looks REALLY messy.
At this point I 'm not happy with it at all and will probably very carefully rip this all out and do the straight black satin floss.  

Before I do, I will await comments and advice.

Until next time.....


  1. If you aren't happy don't use it - you will hate every second of back stitching even more if you do. Follow your feelings on this, they know what look you are after :)

    1. It was worth a try and I looked at it again this morning before running off to work and it still looks awful to me. I'm even thinking that the thicker satin isn't a good idea so maybe regular cotton floss with metallic? I'll try that tonite and see what happens :D

    2. It was indeed :)

      Hmm.. yeah you might be right, could just be the way the satin is made that is making it less than pretty. Sounds like a plan to me :)

    3. Excellent, I'll be trying again on Saturday after I rip out the yuk. Then we will see how it looks with just the cotton :D
