Embroidered and Fabric Color Wheels

French Knot Color Wheel Necklace from Hugs are Fun

It’s no secret I love rainbows and color wheels. The big French knot color wheel is still one of my favorite projects I’ve ever made. I made a smaller version last year but never really took good pictures of it and then I sold it. So I decided I should make a new one that I would actually keep for myself, which so rarely happens. It looks so involved but I stitched it up in just a couple nights of binge watching Parks and Recreation. It’s in a Dandelyne hoop necklace and I absolutely love it.

And while I was on the whole color wheel kick, I got the idea to make one using Heat’n Bond* and fabric scraps. I wanted to make a small one for another necklace but it was a lot harder to do than I expected. The pieces were so small and it was really difficult to line the pieces up.

I had enough fabric leftover that I could make another, bigger color wheel. This one is about 3″ in diameter. I had planned on putting it into a 3″ hoop but I am also toying with the idea of embroidering something around the outside and then displaying it in a bigger hoop.

Making a color wheel of fabric was harder than I expected, it was difficult to find all the different colors but I think it turned out pretty well!
