The beautiful paisley designs in this collection are created solely from thread, so they stitch out in a snap. For embroidery-only designs such as these, thread choices are the key to success. The paisley portions of each animal are digitized in sections so that you have the option of using different tones or a solid color. To make each stitchout pop, we chose to build up from a dark background fabric. The main portion of each design was stitched with matte threads, and we picked three shades - light, medium, and dark for each color. For the satin stitches and accents within each design, we selected coordinating metallic thread for some extra pizazz. No matter your thread choices, these Paisley Animals are guaranteed to please!
