Pearsall's Silk Floss - Experiment # 1 - Dollhouse Miniature Pillow


For the try of my newly arrived Pearsall's silk floss I chose to make a miniature pillow with Pansies.


I can't put it together yet since, as you can see, there is still a lot of room left for the experiments, :)))


As I said in my previous post, I didn't purchase a big variety of colors, and only violet colors to try a new design of Pansies. For this dollhouse miniature pillow I used 3 types of threads: Pearsall's (for the petals), DMC cotton (leaves) and Gutermann silk for the background.


I started experimenting with 40 count silk gauze. Pearsall's silk floss seems to be thicker than DMC and still gives nice coverage on 40 count.


Because of this difference, it gives a nice 3D effect of the petals of Pansies that I haven't expected. I tried to take the pictures as close as possible for you to see the difference:



Definitely, when you touch the surface of the future pillow, you can feel it, :))


Now I will try Pearsall's silk on 49 count.

See you soon,

New Silk Floss Arrived...


I am a silk floss addict and I am enjoining it, :)))

I am always excited and anxious to try new silk floss on silk gauze. A week ago I ordered Pearsall's silk floss that has been discontinued and had to put my little Siam kitten aside for a while. The silk is twisted, seems to be thicker than DMC, shinny (:((....


In spite of the fact that I didn't order many colors, I hope my kitten won't be neglected for a long time, but I HAVE TO try my new silk floss right the way!

I will post a result of the experiment as soon as I finish it!
