I am loving Chrissie's Stitching Sunday.
This week she was giving us some tips on transferring your embroidery designs to fabric her tips are really useful.
I have just started to use a Sulky iron -on transfer pen. This is the first project I have used it for and I so wish I had read the instructions before I had.
After transferring to the fabric I thought the image was clear enough. But when I got it under a bright craft light is wasn't really dark enough but I used it as I couldn't reposition it.
I have now read the instructions and have tried them out. amazingly (not) it was so much better. Note to self:- READ instructions before use.
How many of us don't?
I am sure I'm not the only one who does this.
The only down side I can see to this method is that the drawn lines are permanent and they are quite thick. I'm not sure if I'm going to use this as my main method of transferring designs or if I will return to the trusty Light box and pencil.
We'll have to see how it goes.
This is the progress I made on my bird table embroidery. I really like how the snow seams to stand out on the roof and snowflakes.
I have just got the chimney and borders to do so hopefully next Sunday I can finish it.
Thanks Chrissie for hosting. Its great to see what everyone is up to.
