Tools & Materials


The designs in this book were created and stitched with DMC six strand embroidery floss 25 (Mouline Special 25). The six strands can be separated, which gives you the option to change the thickness of your stitches.

Embroidery floss packages are labeled with a color number. Metallic embroidery floss color numbers start with the letter E followed by a number.

These label numbers are coordinated with the stitch diagrams for each design in this book so it’s easy figure out which colors you will need for each motif.

A few motifs in the book use DMC Size 12 floss which is heavier than regular embroidery floss and there are no threads to separate. It’s good for covering larger areas.
