In one of our previous inspiration posts, one of our readers commented that they would love to see DMC Cotton Floss displayed in color wheel order – what a beautiful idea!
Blogger Kimberly Ouimet is busy organizing her entire DMC floss collection using a color wheel, and she has many gorgeous photos and tips on her process on her blog. Visit her post.
Starting from a stack of paint chips, matching up your floss as you go is a wonderful way to familiarize yourself with the concept of a color wheel.
Amy was kind enough to list all 26 DMC Threads shades she used: 304, 321, 666, 606, 741, 972, 725, 726, 704, 471, 702, 701, 699, 958, 991, 503, 501, 826, 825, 3746, 553, 552, 326, 335, 3733.
If cross stitch is more your thing, there’s a free color wheel pattern on Daisies for Violet.
While the pattern does not include floss numbers, it would be a great way to test your color IQ and play a game of match up with the threads in your collection.
Can you match all the pictured shades to DMC threads? Be sure and share your project with us if you do, we’d love to see it!
