Most people don't like making French Knots. Every once in a while I put a few in a design so I thought I'd show you how I make them.
Most of the time I make a French Knot by wrapping one strand of thread around my needle twice. Once I do this I insert the needle back down into the fabric where I want the knot to be. I then slide the wrapped "knot" down the needle to the fabric while keeping the length of the thread taut.
And yes, you've seen a preview of a pattern we are releasing in April!
Ooh.........I like what I see!ReplyDelete
Thanks for the tip. I usually avoid french knots because they rarely turn out. Won't be afraid to try again.ReplyDelete

Thanks for the tip, Diane. I'm always a bit apprehensive when it comes to French Knots.ReplyDelete
Glad to know you use one thread not two. I used two for "Believe" and she has really BIG blue eyes..I'm going to go and take them out and redo them. :) Thanks for the info!ReplyDelete
