You might not be able to tell from the photos (I can’t tell so much in person) but there are a lot of colors in each teacup. The fish teacup uses 24 different threads! The fish alone has six – five colors of orange (DMC 720, 721, 740, 741, 742) and brown (DMC 3371) for the eyeball. The Rose Lace teacup only had 10 colors, but eight of them were pinks. It’s a good thing I have all the DMC colors.
