Step 1: Simple Stitching:
Stitching in rows of straight lines creates a wood grain pattern called Mokume.
Start with a light/ white colored fabric – the dye and pattern will show up more clearly.
Thread your needle with very strong thread like upholstery or button craft thread. You are going to need to pull up the threads very tightly! Make a double knot where you begin and leave about 3 inches of loose thread where you end.
Leopard and snakeskin are the new neutrals.
