September Swatch of the month: Couching Top layer-Twilight Backing layer-Twilight Couching-Twilight Thread-Grey Paint-Pearl Slate #diy

The couching technique uses cotton-jersey ropes appliquéd to the base fabric with a parallel whip stitch. Stencil the right side of the top layer fabric with desired design and couch along the outside edge.

To make ropes: cut 1/2" wide strips with the grain of the fabric. Pull each strip from both ends to make them 3/16" in diameter
