Fight Like a Girl

Another fab design by Urban Threads. This time, I may keep it for myself.

Now these wings. Yikes. Have you ever used metallic or pearl essence embroidery floss? Not fun. It is so stiff and the strands do not like to stay together. And at the point of the needle's eye it sort of shreds. But it looks so cute and sparkly :)

She may become part of my gym bag. Or I might just wait and make another since I still have to make the gym bag itself :P

Very cute! Eep...I have a cross stitching project in the project queue involving metallic embroidery floss...didn't know that! I may have to rethink it!

Oh, cute.

Yes. I've used that metallic floss. As you say, difficult to work with, but worth the effort!

That is a fantastic pattern! I will have to think of something to make with it for my girls one of these days (love Urban Threads). Last time I used metallic floss, I tried waxing it - worse disaster. If someone comes up with an easy way to work with this, I'd love to hear it!
