Now for some complementary
embroidery! To suit my crafty theme, I picked this light
raven scissors design. If you picked a poem or
theme, there are plenty of designs to suit your project.
Hoop up some stabilizer with
your fabric. For these designs, I chose a water soluble
stabilizer so I can remove it after I’m done stitching
and keep the scarf as soft as possible. This will only
really work for extremely light designs like this one --
for anything more substantial, I'd recommend a sheer
mesh cutaway stabilizer such as Floriani No Show Mesh or
Sulky Soft 'n' Sheer.
Use the colors your fabric
bleached to inspire you! I layered my designs in a
couple of similar colors to bring some interest.
