The Dandelion pictured above is part of our Pollen Slimline Thread Collection, which includes 24 spools of Rayon thread and 5 spools fo Filaine thread to use for all of the Pollen designs (Dandelion, Hibiscus, Calla Lily, Cosmo, Poppy and Gerbera Daisy). Grab the Slimline Collection to embroider lots of flowers and make them come to life with fun Filaine Thread.

If you want to embroider JUST the Dandelion, grab our NEW Dandelion Palette for Machine Embroidery. This Palette includes 5 Rayon spools and 1 Filaine snap spool, along with the Dandelion machine embroidery design, so you can create dimensional Dandelions on loads of projects. Don’t forget to grab a Filaine wire brush to “bloom” the Filaine portions of the design for a fluffy, fur-like effect.

We’ve also curated a 6-pack of thread for handwork! This Petites™ Palette contains 6 spools of Sulky Cotton Petites, as well as the hand embroidery AND cross-stitch Dandelion patterns.

The 12 wt. thread strand equals 2 strands of traditional embroidery floss, and is easier to handle and store. Note: This palette does NOT come with Filaine, so if you want the Dandelion wisps to have that fun thread effect, grab an additional spool of Filaine for those portions of the design.

The cross-stitch design is do-able using the same thread pack, so try your hand at cross-stitch if you haven’t visited that craft in a while.
