[How To] Pick Thread Colour for a Sewing Project

Important steps to know:

  • At the fabric store, get your fabric cut first and then pick your thread.
  • Pull a bit of the thread out the from the spool and lay it on your fabric so you can see how it will look it.
  • For solid fabrics: pick a thread colour that either matches it exactly or one shade darker. *Darker shades of thread blends easily to match your fabric*
Thread colour matches fabric exactly. Thanks to Davie & Chiyo for letting us use their clutch as an example! Check them out here!
  • For printed/patterned fabrics: pick a thread that either matches the base colour or one of the darker shades in the print.

We chose dark grey thread to match with the darkest shade in the print.
