Today’s Eye For Colour will surely get you in the holiday mood – think festive Christmas reds! If you’re new to my Eye For Colour series you are in for a treat. My goal with this series is to provide customers with a similar experience to selecting a colour palette and thread choices as you would do in a shop.

Let’s Get Festive With the Christmas Reds – Colour #187

As you have likely guessed, I am showcasing Colour #187 which is a gorgeous blend of REDS!  Bold, beautiful Christmas-inspired reds!  Since we are featuring a traditional seasonal palette of green and red, I thought this would be a great choice.

In the video, I have opted for an all-red palette today BUT try combining greens such as Colour #18 or Colour #184 to create a beautiful palette. 

I kept the palette simple showing Colour #187 in both size 5 Perle and 6 strand cotton floss. I also added Colour #7 in my floche which combines slightly different shades of reds. I have added several DMC solids including 321, 350, 351, 666 and 3801.

AND we need some texture and bling! In this particular project, I added a few Rainbow Gallery products including:

  • Neon Rays 22, 119
  • Entice 221, 239

Hopefully, the beautiful colours that I’ve highlighted inspire you to get started on some holiday projects. It’s a great time to pick up some REDS and start stitching. I hope this month’s Eye for Colour gives you some inspiration.
