Default What kind of thread to use with felt clips?

Is there a special kind of thread you use when sewing the felt clips? It looks thinner than regular thread. Maybe embroidery thread? I don't have a lot of experience with sewing so could someone point me in the right direction?? Thanks.

Yes, that cross-stitch emb. floss thingy.. I use, depending on the design, 2 or 3 strands. Or, how thick i want the stitching to look. The most/usually, 3 strands for me.

It looks like many strands of very thin thread. But, yes, it does look thick altogether.

Thanks.

I also use embroidery floss with mine. I usually only use 2 strands, but will use 3 when I need bolder stitches.
