VOTE CALL! METALLIC RED OR GOLD?????Trying to finish The SCARF LADY Embroidery!!!!
by VintageMadbyM Follow

I Have designed a lot of Embroidery Patterns these last weeks, inspired by the Vintage drawings in the Pin Up Magazine Bizarre.

I totally enjoyed all the process, from the designing , to the drawing and the creation of embroidery patterns and kits. Despite all of this taking ages! There is definitly not enough hours in a day!

I really wanted to embroider myself all these patterns to test them and to be sure they were doable and that the result would be nice. I managed to embroider most of them and absolutely adore how they look.  2 days ago I just began this last one: The Scarf Lady.

But I would like your help: which color would you like me to do the hair? Metallic red or gold?

I am really counting on your opinions and will wait a bit for your advices to finish the hair! They will be the color favorited by the majority!

Please take a look at my embroideries and patterns on my page and share your thoughts about them!

That s my first post and I hope it will lead to an exchange with you, crafty people!

See you soon!

    I would like to see red. I've never used metallic thread before, is it tricky to work with? love your work!

    Thanks a lot Nic!

    Yes metallic thread is a bit more complicated as it tangles A LOT!
    I recommand cutting shorter thread lenghths ( around 30 cm or less) and I also use a lovely thread conditionner called Thread Heaven. It s a bit the same principle as beeswax, you just run the thread in the little square box , and it is far easier to work with.
    ButI think metallic thread really adds a lot to an embroidery, I really like the silver thread that I used in my pattern Rita, the Moon and the Stars. ( it s also my profile pic!)
    Please share my post if you want the metallic red to win as so far it s 1-1!

    Thanks for the tips, I have some Thread Heaven so that's a good start and yes I have my eye on Rita, just need to finish some UFOs first!

    You are very welcome Nic!

    If you still want to see the Scarf Lady with metallic red hair, please ask your friends to vote.....Gold is winning so far!
