I'm so glad you're excited about the pattern tutorial too...and feel free to use my demo pattern as practice or your own project...if you love Marilyn the way I love Marilyn.  Grin
Honestly I'm more thrilled with the results of the quilt I'm working on even more than the cross stitch. I did this project in cross stitch as a test to see if the pixel pattern would 'work'...and then when I saw it had the results I wanted, I began cutting a few thousand squares of fabric for my quilt.
I've pieced the whole thing,but need to add backing, & binding (ooooh...I despise binding) but I digress.
Gee guys...I wasn't expecting such a response!   Embarrassed I'm blushing!

You're making a quilt using the same method??? You are such a smart cookie!!!! I would love to see that when it's finished! I am sure it will look as amazing as the cross-stitch!

Hi there

I love your cross stitch.  I haven't done any for about 10 years from a readymade kit given to me.  I really want to get into it again, and I've seen some great patterns that can be printed out... but .... maybe I'm being dumb, but I can't work out how the paper pattern gets onto the material? Forgive me if this is a really silly question, but i've looked on loads of websites and it doesn't seem to be covered anywhere.  I must be missing something really obvious.

Any help / advice would be much appreciated.

Thanks Jane

I just used my pattern like a grid...started in one corner to have a reference point and counted stitches. That's probably why it took me longer than I expected to do this.
Anyhow, back to your question Jane...about how to get it on your fabric. You can get some of that iron on inkjet printer paper from nearly any fabric/crafts, or even office supply store. If you don't have luck with that, here's a link for some.

I think there are other brands...this came up when I googled it. THey also have inkjet fabric that you run through your printer...so maybe that could save you a step of ironing & transferring and just stitch on that.
Let me know how it works out!  Wink
