Pink Background -- Phase 1

Hi Everybody... Robin here.

I've added the Pink Background to the Kitty Bra and Tap Pants.
I'm calling this Phase 1.

Why? Well, because upon further review... I thought my "barely there" background needed a little bit more zing.

(My mind is still swarming with Football references. How 'bout them Saints!)

I found the perfect Phase 2 candidate: Hi-Lights. I'll keep you posted.


  1. It looks great so far. I can see a line of High Lights woven under all the diamonds....

    Use short lengths of High Lights. It frazzles after going through the canvas too many times.

    Ask me how I know.

  2. All I can say is Purrfect. If it needs some more zing, try doing a 1x1 cross stitch in the center intersections between the diamonds using a metallic. Or a clear crystal bead or frams the diamonds with accentuate or a similar thread. I think the beads might be a good bet because it will balance your bead use and still not detract from the pants. I am big into balance and scale. I do not think it would distract but it will balance the bling factor.

  3. Woops, I should ahve read it better...Hi-Lights will work fine and still balance the glitz.
