Hey, those are some good colors, so I rushed to Urban Threads, the site that made me drool over machine embroidery in the first place. There were so many amazing designs that I wanted, but I made sure to limit myself to only a few. There was one that I could not resist to save my life.
I'm a vampire lover. I love vamps of all shapes and sizes and personalities and origin. One thing I didn't take into account was that this design required 7 different colors. Seven!! I surely didn't have money to buy those colors, so I vowed to forget about the pattern. I wanted it out of my mind, but it refused to leave. I wanted to do it so much, so I decided to improvise.
Since Christmas I have acquired some more thread colors, but nothing more than what I need, and nothing that can't be used on a number of different projects. I still haven't gotten anything on that list, and now I don't plan to. I decided to just skip over the colors I didn't have and use gray and white for all teeth sections.
And I think it turned out great! The flash shows the brilliant red, and in person the separate teeth easily seen. I'm so glad I can now use this design that I've kept hidden in a folder for the last month.
