I just got a few of these nifty little floss cards from my mom. I’m definitely going to need to head to Hobby Lobby to acquire more.
I don’t know how often I will be popping projects on here – I’m in the midst of giftmaking for Christmas. But I thought it would be fun to have a look at my faves. I noticed that I have a lot of jewel tones in my fave floss at the moment. Wonder what they will be as the seasons change?
These are my faves (all DMC floss):
3852 – I don’t like metallic floss. Yes, the effect is nice, but it is a PAIN to deal with! But I love this satiny gold – it’s a nice rich color, and gives that gold feel. I’m using it right now on a gift WIP.
154 – Purple is one of my favorite colors. I just love this jewel tone. It’s so deep and just gorgeous.
744 – I love buttery yellows. In fact, I’m wearing this color right now.
580 – Green is my other favorite color, and this green tops it.
3808 – I don’t like teal particularly. But this darkened teal tows the line quite nicely between a dark green and a dark blue – it’s a lovely combination. I’m about out of it – need to get more! This is probably the Monkey’s favorite of all my floss.
321 – I don’t like the bright “666” red (who at DMC though “devil red” and coded it 666? How hilarious is that?). But take it a little deeper and it’s just gorgeous.
326 (Dark Rose) – OK, hot pink. I live in a house of men. I think the hot pink appeals to my girly side. So fun.
921 – I love orange (I’m a Tennessee alum). Although this is technically Texas orange – I’ve always loved that deeper orange. It’s a little more versatile.
311 – Just love the deep blue here.
Do you have favorite floss? Colors of floss that you return to – or want to return to – time and time again? Even for you sewers – are there tones of fabric you often revisit?
