871  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / First Project Post -- Silly Fruit Cloth Napkins on: June 03, 2009 05:38:07 PM
I took up embroidery a couple of months ago, and found so many patterns I love in the Hoop Love group on Flickr, but I couldn't imagine needing dozens of tea towels.  So...upcycled buttery soft flannel sheet becomes silly fruit cloth napkins!  Thanks for looking!

Looks so nice and summery!  Good work!

Glad to know you like your rolled hem foot.  I just bought one, but haven't had a chance to try it yet.

That's darling!  I wish I had a girl to sew for.

Very sweet photos of your girl, too.

Those are darling pics!  "Crying like an abused orphan..."  I know exactly what you mean!!!  My little man is the same way if I try to put something on him that he doesn't want to wear.

He was a really good sport to pose for pics!!  And a lucky little man to have a mama who makes him such awesome pants.

I love that birdie -- looks great!

I second your opinion on Hoop Love -- what an amazing resource!

That is great info.  Thank you!

Thanks for the info!  I was at JoAnn yesterday and found the Sulky stuff, but was totally mystified by all the different types.  I almost bought the iron on tear-away stuff, so it's good to know I was on the right track!

When you draw the pattern on the stabilizer, do you ever have problems with the ink getting smeary or mucking up your floss?  That's the problem I had with Sharpie on Glad Press and Seal, even though I made sure to let the Sharpie dry for a couple of days before stitching on it.

When you tear away the Sulky, does it stress any of your stitches?  That's another frustration I had with the Press and Seal.

Is the Sulky transparent enough to see through it to trace the pattern, or do you need a light box?

Thanks again for the info!  I'm sure someday I'll come across the perfect transfer method.  I like the idea of the pattern on the stabilizer instead of permanently on my fabric -- especially if I end up embroidering any vintage items.

So I'm not entirely thrilled with the methods I've used so far for transferring embroidery patterns to fabric.  What I've tried so far is dressmaker's tracing paper (no good), sharpie on Glad Press and Seal (hard to stitch through, and had some of the ink discolor the floss as I was working), and hot iron transfer pencils, which are OK, but the line is wide even if I have the pencil quite sharp when tracing and I couldn't use it on dark fabrics.

So I seem to have heard of using Sulky stabilizer for transferring patterns, but I"m confused because there are so many varieties of Sulky.  There's tear-away, water soluble, etc, and I'm clueless.  Does it iron on to the fabric I'd be stitching on?

If anyone's used this, I'd love to hear more about it.

Thanks!
