I know... excuse the left-over holiday party-polish. ; ) But seriously, check out the thread! It's by Wonderfil, and it's called Razzle. It's a big fat crochet-size rayon in my favorite color with sparkle through it! I have a regular 'red arrow' bobbin case for sewing, a 'blue arrow' for free motion and thread painting so that I don't have to fiddle with the machine's tension at all between threads. (LOVE that about Janome.) So I bought a third bobbin case and marked it with party-green nail polish to distinguish it from the rest. It's my "play" bobbin. What a liberating thing to not fear adjusting the bobbin tension! : )
I set the tension screw so that the Razzle cord could easily unwind off the bobbin. Then away I went. I didn't want to try too much because I really don't want to waste an inch of this thread. ; ) I put a green 50 weight Wonderfil cotton in the top (Tutti green variegated), away I went... basically sewing upside down. When you flip it over, you'll see the cotton top thread appears to couch the Razzle bobbin thread onto the fabric. Isn't that cool!?
This was just stitched down onto a scrap of stabilizer. What a cool thing. I'll couch with it on top too, feeding it through the foot. For now though, this is pretty intriguing....
Thank you George & Wendy : )
