Choosing floss colors for smocking on pink fabric can be a bit tricky. I often use white along with other shades of pink, but for this project I wanted something a bit different. Pink and gray are a popular color combination for clothing and home decorating, so why not for smocking? DMC #415 gray and #604 pink looks nice on the pink Imperial Broadcloth fabric without being too bold or too pale.
The bishop bubble was made using pattern #142 and the smocking design is included in the pattern. Smocked hearts, just right for Valentine's Day!
