Last week, I posted about plushwork with tapestry wool.
I decided to try the same technique with six strand cotton embroidery floss and thought I would share a quick post about how it turned out!
I used the same template and a variegated pink floss.
Half way through my first layer of satin stitches - so far I like how it looks with the variegated pink.
I completed 4 layers of floss on each petal.
Once again - the fun part - cutting through the layers.
Pull out the template...
Here is what it looked like before I "fluffed" it ...
Here is what it looks like after.
I really like the end result with the embroidery floss! I also thought it was easier to stitch with the floss than wool, since wool is much more bulky, but I am also new to wool stitching.
A few more photos of different angles...
I see lots of possibilities of using this technique to add more dimension to my stitching too.
What do you think? Which version do you like better - cotton floss or wool?
I have a few more ideas for plushwork, so you may be seeing some more posts about it in the future.....
