3D Cake with DMC Embellishment - part four

Hi Everybody... Robin here.

Want to see how/where else to use the DMC Memory Thread? Just look at these ways Alice Okon, designer from DMC, stitched these models using DMC Memory Thread.

Can you find all of the DMC Memory Thread treatments in Photo #1?

Alice used it for the different Seaweed locations, Mermaid Bra, Mermaid Bottom, Harp, Braided Trim, Mermaid Crown and Fish Hook.

Alice also added DMC Memory Thread to this canvas by Maggie Co, Beautiful Flowers (M1429). Look and enjoy! You can also read more about this canvas on the DMC blog.

During the 3D Cake Embellishment class, I also brought models I had stitched showing more DMC Memory Thread applications. Remember these?

Movement and Motion really tell the story with DMC Memory Thread.

The Twin Curl decorations at the top of this
ornament was made with DMC Memory Thread.

Use DMC Memory Thread when making
an Earring or Jewelry for your needlepoint.

Lettering, Outline Edge and Facial Details
are easy to do with DMC Memory Thread

Plants and Flowers are enhanced with DMC Memory Thread

To summarize, here are some of the ways I have seen DMC Memory Thread used:

  • ruffle edge or a bow
  • curls - freeform
  • spiral curls
  • flat spirals
  • single line edge
  • double line edge
  • twisted -- one color
  • twisted -- two colors
  • picot needleweaving structure
  • stumpwork structure
  • single knot
  • strand of knots
  • braided
  • beads placed on
  • script wording or letters 

Of course, this is not a final list. I am sure we will find other ways to use it. Can't wait to try. Read more about DMC Memory Thread on the DMC website.

Stop the presses... this just in... I received a wonderful DMC Memory Thread Conversion to Splendor, Silk Lamé Braid, Neon Rays, Soft Sheen Fyre Werks and Mandarin Floss from Sally/Rainbow Gallery. Each thread would make an awesome couching thread with the DMC Memory Thread. Thanks, Sally!


Well, that's all for now. Go have fun with the DMC Memory Thread. Let me hear from you.

Until the next time... Hugs, Robin
