Matching colours

I would like to try stitching on different coloured fabrics but how can I be sure that the colours will work?

Lay the threads used in the design across the colour of fabric you wish to use. This will give you an immediate impression of whether the colours work or not. Check that the colours work on the fabric both individually and as a whole, and also check that none of the shades are lost in the colour of the fabric. If you are still unsure, it is worth stitching a small test area on the fabric to indicate how the threads show up.
