I bought the pattern for Mirabilia's Petal Fairy, see it here:ttern/04-3255 Now I'm contemplating what to do. I have a gorgeous peachy colored, opalesc ent fabric in my stash, but it's 36ct and I've never worked on that before.
If I were to stitch 2 over 2, would the thread be too thick for 36 count fa
I'm also considering stitching 1 over 1 but I've never done that before. Wi
ll 1 thread be enough coverage on 36ct? The pattern calls for Kreinik...I c
an't believe that stuff can be worked 1 over 1. Perhaps just using a single
strand of blending filament would work?
Have you guys ever stitched such a large pattern 1 over 1 before, and will
mistakes be too difficult to rip out? I doubt I can get through a pattern t
his size without needing to rip out at least some stitches (I make mistakes
all the time).
Also, there's not too many beads on this project...it's hard to tell on the
picture but the beads are only at the ends of the fairy's wings and swirli
ng around the bottom of her dress (they aren't packed in too tightly, as th
ey are in other mira's). What size bead should I use for 36ct?
Thank you in advance for any suggestions you might have. :)
