Hey there Patterned History readers. Hope your weekend was the bee's knees. If not I hope who ever ruined your weekend gets what's coming to him. This weekend I did a bit of sewing and while I was sitting at the machine I decided to bust out some Lurex thread. I picked this thread up at a little trim store in the fashion district of NYC when I was out buying stuff for a project. The colors just spoke to me. Mostly saying "Sparkly sparkly.... buy us," and I couldn't help but obey them. In order to give the thread more body and make the sparkle more subtle I ran the lurex through the machine with one ply of standard black thread. When I ran these deco stitches that actually look a bit raised. It's very luxe... oh la la! Hopefully I'll find a use for these threads in a project soon!
