Color Variations Projects

Thursday, August 16, 2012

DMC Color Variations threads are super-popular with stitchers. These multicolored thread with an over-dyed effect are available in a gorgeous range of colors. The varying colors in each skein are beautiful used in a variety of needlework, including cross stitch and half cross stitch.

Here are a few projects you can stitch using these threads that are truly inspiring – and easy!

Let the floss do the work of shading in the different areas of the design!

Stitch the Falling Leaves project for the back-to-school season using 3 shades of Color Variations Floss – 4040 Water Lilies, 4060 Weeping Willow and 4070 Autumn Leaves – plus one solid color of DMC Embroidery Floss such as 553.

The finished project measures 5 x 5 inches when worked on 14-count white CharlesCraft Aida, making it a great project for moms on the go.

Or, stitch this Summer Vase filled with brightly colored daised is a deep blue vase.

This project is stitched using 2 shades of Color Variations floss – 4110 Sunrise and 4190 Ocean Coral – along with 10 colors of DMC Embroidery Floss.

Prefer yellow or purple flowers?  It’s easy to swap out the colors to suit your own vision of the project.

The finished size of the vase is 4 x 6 inches when worked on 14-count white Aida.

Or, stitch this adorable Shopping Girl with Bags, available here for a limited time and available any time for members of Club DMC.

    Thank you so much for posting these patterns–they are adorable! I am so in love with the color variations flosses–I have a couple of the box sets and use them a lot! When you posted those peeps bunnies at Easter time, I stitched mine with the color variations and they are so cute! Check out my blog today about my love affair with DMC floss!
