Aurifil Artisan

Fall Rainbow

Have you ever had a plan that didn’t turn out? So you came up with a Plan B? That is exactly what happened to me! And I am calling it a Fall Rainbow!

This month’s Aurifil Artisan Challenge was to use Aurifil Floss. Have you tried this yet? Let me just say, it’s amazing! It stitches up so beautifully and comes in every color! You should try it!

Supplies for Fall Rainbow

I gathered up some of my favorite supplies for my fall rainbow:

Aurifil floss

Felt Scraps

Steel Swiss Dot Fabric for the background

Interfacing

HeatnBond Ultra hold

Embroidery scissors

Needle

Oliso Iron

I started by preparing the background fabric. I first fused the interfacing to the wrong side of the background fabric (per manufactures instructions.) And I used my Oliso iron of course! Next, I fused the HeatnBond to the felt. Then I cut out the rainbow shapes and fused the shapes to the background fabric.

Then comes the fun part…embellishing. I love the freedom of embroidery. It seems to be more forgiving than cross-stitch. I also really love florals. So I started with some woven wheel stitches. My idea was that the florals would replace the clouds. I ended up using less colors as they just seemed to match better than my original pull. (Plan C at this point…Haha) I added a few lazy daisy stitches and some French knots and then I was done!

And now I have a fun Fall Rainbow to enjoy. After this crazy year, I could certainly use a rainbow to help calm the storm of 2020!
