Introducing 16 Sulky Cotton Blendables thread to the Petites line!
Introducing 16 Sulky Cotton
Blendables thread to the
Although I am super excited about the 64 new Cotton Color
threads Sulky is introducing, I am equally excited that we are
adding 16 of our most popular Sulky Blendables thread to the
Sulky Cotton Petites thread line! Yes, that’s right, more
Petites! If you do hand embroidery at all, the Sulky Cotton
Petites thread are a must. They are 12 wt. cotton thread on a
50 yard snap end spool. Do you realize what that means? No
more separating floss! No more tangles thread and no more
loosing the end of thread since it will always be safely
tucked into the snap end.
I am not over exaggerating when I say that the combo of Sulky
Cotton Petites and Sulky Sticky Fabri-Solvy changed my life
(OK, slight exaggeration), but it did change my sewing life. I
had all but stopped doing hand embroidery. Between the time it
took to trace a pattern and get the floss ready to sew, I
never got time to do any actual stitching. And don’t even get
me started on hoops. With Sulky sticky Fabri-solvy, I print
the pattern right onto the stabilizer, peel off the backing
sheet and then stick it directly to the front of the fabric I
want to stitch on, no matter what that fabric is. I can do
wool, fleece, cuddle, cotton, kitchen towels, you name it.
With the Sticky Fabri-Solvy on the front, I don’t need a hoop
(praise the Lord)!
Next comes the Sulky 12 wt. Cotton Petites thread. I just pull
off the exact amount I need. No separating, no putting the
whole skein onto a little cardboard card first. Then I safely
tuck the end into the snap end of the spool. Since this thread
is equal to about 2 strands of embroidery floss, it is usually
the perfect thread size, but when I need it thicker, it is
very easy to double and thread my needle. So now when I have
15 minutes, I can spend that time stitching instead of
preparing to stitch. I started doing hand embroidery again
because all of the things I didn’t like have been eliminated.
OK, back to the new Blendables Petites thread! These are the
Blendables that will now be in the Petites thread line:
Aren’t they great! Do you want a great project to use these
beautiful threads on? I found these awesome hand embroidery
patterns on the blog Turkey Feathers!
This wonderful lady made a hand embroidery pattern of all the
state flowers for all 50 states. I love them! We are using an
adaptation of the Hawaii state flower the Hibiscus, as a free
pattern that we are giving away at Quilt Market and Quilt
Festival in Houston.
As a thank you to my loyal blog readers, here is the download
for the pattern we are giving out at Houston (flower
pattern ). Just print it on Sulky Sticky Fabri-Solvy and you
will be stitching in minutes. You can check out all 50 of the
original patterns here. Did I mention that these are all free
patterns? Don’t you just love when it’s free!
