This is just stunning. Very classy and elegant in its lines. Odd how such functional things can be so pleasing to the eye.

Good job!

Straight lines are not my friend, so no danger of me replicating this!

Thank you! I'm glad you liked it. I've mostly made cross stitch before, so I'm still learning this whole embroidery thing.

That's a patent by the way not really a blue print
Oops, guess I don't know the proper terminology. You learn something new every day. Smiley

Jemimah: Thanks for the tip, I'll try that next time. When you use pencil, how do you get the pattern from paper to fabric? Do you use a light table or something like that?

I usually just hold/tape it up on a window. I also have a glass coffee table, which can work on a bright day, or with a torch. A light box would be great, but I don't really need one.

Try with a small thing first to see if you're happy with the result. I find a sharp 2H pencil by far the best method for me (and it's cheap!), especially for fine detail. I use it on silk, when I don't want to wash it. Just go as light as you can while still being able to see it.
