Do you use a thicker thread for the hemstitching, or is it the Madeira #80? (It looks thick in the picture, but I realize it might be because the photo is just enlarged.)

I am working on this very pattern right now for my son, and so I've been excited to see your posts. These fancywork techniques are all new to me, but I'm so excited to improve my handstitching skills...especially since I don't have my own machine right now. Hand embellishments are a perfect way to go!

Thank you for a beautiful pattern.

Thank you for a lovely pattern. I was charmed when cutting it out to see all the notes, names, and verses. It made my least favorite part of sewing much nicer!

Hi Isabella, I use DMC #50 thread for hand Hemstitching.
