My design can be created in any colors of your choice. I have used black, grey and white. Shades of blue or brown would also look great. I often use the colors I have on hand. I also do not separate my floss, using the largest tip on the punch. Weavers cloth is essential for this method. I purchase this from the great sellers on Etsy. Shipping is fast and the products are great quality. Thanks for looking at my designs.
