I finished my 5 stitch challenge nametag.
The challenge was to use 5 stitches and 5 threads.
I used one thread to backstitch each letter of my name and picked a stitch include over each letter:
E - perle cotton and eyelet
R - overdyed cotton floss and rice stitch
I - wool and interlaced backstitch
C - overdyed silk floss and chain stitch
A - silk perle and arrowhead stitch
For the stitches above each letter, I used 2 or 3 threads. Since the background is very dark and the thread differences are all subtle, I don't know if I got the full effect of using 5 threads.
I can't wait to debut the name tag at the September EGA meeting.
