Some of my patterns

Fandango bookmark


Here we go - another diversion!!! Yes, I'm incorrigible.

This time it's a Fandango bookmark which is made with HWT (Hand Wound Thread). 

For those who haven't heard me wittering on about it before - it's any two or three strands of thread wound onto the shuttle together. In this case (IF I remember rightly) it's sewing thread and just two strands. 

This is the link to the pattern. Sadly it's one of mine - just because I'm forever checking my 'stuff' for mistakes or improvements that I can make!!!

  1. Very pretty! Do you remember the colors in the outside round, Jane. I know photos don't always represent the true colors of a piece, but it reminds me a gold metallic thread.

    1. They were simply a plain yellow quilting thread and a variegated sewing thread as far as I can remember. Same with the green - a plain quilting thread and a thread which I think is called Oliver Twist.

  2. I like the green too - I really must try this for myself. It's equivalent to about size 80?

    1. At a guess it's probably thinner than 80. With two wound together it's more like a 40, I think. I'll check that out tomorrow.
