Product We Love: COSMO Embroidery Floss

EDITIMG_7246

Here at Make It Yourself, we love embroidery floss! (Have you joined our Cross-Stitch of the Month program yet?) Not only is embroidery fun, relaxing, and portable — perfect for a project while traveling — but it’s such a great way to play with color and texture.

 

COSMO embroidery floss from Lecien comes in 450 different colors and is made from Egyptian cotton. This makes the floss durable, strong, and vivid, so you can create embroidery projects that last. The colors are rich and beautiful! And Lecien has so many colors that you’ll be able to find whatever you need for your project.

 

Pick up some (or all — that’s what we did!) of this floss and get stitching!
