After the gaudy silver star, I decided to make a simpler one. This star was made with DMC Pearl Cotton floss in Ecru.
I really like the look of the Pearl Cotton. It isn't as shiny as regular DMC floss, and because it is a twisted, 2-ply floss, it has a textured effect. I think that the ecru color coordinates with the vintage velvet I'm using better than the silver thread in last week's star. The simpler design probably helped it, too. Or, is it too simple? What do you think?
Next: A star made out of an old purse!
