Copper coils were the inspiration for this design, and copper coils and wire are added to the design randomly after the pattern stitches are completed. Shiny metals and lustrous silks add to the fun textures in this project. Don’t be afraid of the “r” word – I give instructions on how to apply the random coils and wires to the design, and you can give the project your own personal stamp!
