does anyone have any good tips for transferring patterns onto black or dark colored fabrics? i sewed one of Jenny's patterns from Sublime Stitching onto a small dark blue denim tote and it took FOREVER!
i attempted to iron the pattern on, but it obviously was impossible to see. i started by just "eyeballing" the design, but ended up tracing the pattern with white chalk and pressing it onto the fabric. it worked great for about five minutes, then the chalk would rub off from me working on it. i finished it eventually, but it took so frigging long that i haven't gotten around to trying this again, even though i have so many dark things that i would like to embroider! HELP
Hey, I originally meant to post the picture of my embroidery on dark fabric, but couldn't figure out how to link to it until now! Hope this works:http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v481/janeuardo/LuckyLady.jpg
