Want to see a beautiful, inspiring website that is easy to lose yourself in? That would be Stitch Palettes. It is palette generator with a focus on DMC embroidery floss.

For a deep dive, head to the Palette Generator in the header at the top of the website. For a quicker search more like a real floss toss, check out the sidebar. You will find:

  • Palettes by Color
  • Palettes by Scheme
    • Warm/Cool
    • Retro/Modern
    • etc.
  • Palettes by Season
  • Palettes by Theme

For the Generator itself, you can start by entering a DMC thread number, a HEX code, or simply clicking on a shade (also numbered). The threads listed are only the most commonly used.

I started with DMC 907. I was going for a froggy green because you know…

Notice there is a HEX code, my pick, DMC tapestry wool, and Anchor alternative.

Following that is:

  • Closest Colors
  • Color Schemes (Shades)
  • Monochromatic
  • Analogous
  • Complementary

Nothing surprising there. These topics have their related colors displayed as well fyi.

Stitch Palettes also has additional palette topics. Ones I have never even heard of which isn’t really saying all that much 😉 But I think this is really where it gets interesting as far as floss toss choices.
