Glow-in-the-dark floss on gauze fabric. I like the sketchiness of working on a see through fabric and the loose ends hanging down. It was really quick to do- I am definitely going to use this technique again. It is quite 'ghostly' and hard to see so i had to photograph it against the black but in real life it looks best against a window or white wall.

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

This is so creepy-I love it! Love that you used glow in the dark thread. Was it hard to stitch on the gauze?

It was ok actually, just had to be careful not to pull the stitches tight as that would snag the fabric. I think it would be difficult to do something very detailed or heavily stitched. Because the fabric is see through some of the outline you can see is on the back of the fabric and the stitches are quite long - I 'sketched' with the thread if that makes sense?

Thank you everyone for your nice comments Cheesy
