I traced the basic shape of the cuff in pencil and had to estimate the centre and then freehand drew the picture on then went over in the floss. I'm sure there's a more technical way to do this but it worked okay for me. It works quite well but for denser or darker fabrics I don't think I can use the same technique so I'm going to try something else when it comes to that. Thanks for the comment!

Did you draw the pattern on with pencil?  I use one of the wash off with cold water pens and have such a hard time getting any kind of detail.  You've totally inspired me and I need to make a bunch of these for Christmas gifts.  Cheesy

Yeah, took a while as it has to be light enough to not show through afterwards, but dark enough to be able to make out the detail! These make perfect gifts 'cause you can team it up with a Starbucks card, or similar. I'm certainly going to make more of these for Christmas myself!

Alaska_drive, thanks for the comment! Alice in Wonderland has to be one of the greatest books in history. I grew a bigger obsession with it when my dad told me it was written along the Oxford river, where I live. :]
