When stitch drawing or sketching (“thread painting- lite”), consider stitching your drawing twice. Make the first round in a thread that blends well into the background. This can help with:
– the placement of the motif
– practicing the fluid drawing motion
– adding interest, shading or depth to a simple outline.
Then follow with the thread that you want to show off more.
A little extra practice in sketching can lead to a curious desire to adopt the Big Box of Crayola thread colors.
