Our New Moon-Lite Design! A SPARKLY CHRISTMAS


Sparkly Christmas pic

If you like your Christmas with a little glitz, this new Moon-Lite design fits the bill!  In the process of creating this design leaflet, I’ve learned a couple of things: 1) Stitching with Kreinik’s #4 Metallic Braid is not difficult at all. I’m not sure why I’d imagined it might be, but I’m glad I tried it! I hope you all won’t shy away just because the metallic thread might be something you’ve never worked with before.  2) It IS very difficult trying to get a great picture of the finished model! No matter what I tried, the pictures I took just don’t fully capture the depth of sparkle in this piece. Trust me on this…it’s GLITZY!

I’ll be shipping to shops next week, so keep your eye out! If you prefer instant gratification, the design is available as an E-Pattern  at Waxing Moon’s Etsy Shop: A Sparkly Christmas E-Pattern
