yyyyaaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyyyyyy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! all done! mailing tomorrow! which is a funny coincidence since partners for my next swap are announced tomorrow! believe it or not it really just happened that way! i'm really happy with your hoops, prettyrustyrobot.... i'd say i don't wanna let them go (cause they really did come out super cute if i do say so myself) except that they are so specific to your tastes that half the time i giggle when i look at them and half the time i don't really "get" them myself!

hopefully they'll land safely in your hot little hands by the end of the week!  Wink

*knock on wood*

ps thanks guys, yeah i've gotta think of something awesome to make for my mom with some of the cool swag she got me.

Babaliba - I use a light box and a 3b pencil, the lines rub off natural coloured linen rather well.

I tried to sew yesterday evening, but I'm at a bit of an impasse! I've finished one big bit, starting on a second, and worrying so much about it going wrong that I'm not enjoying it, even though it is early doors and I need to finish lots more of this bit before it looks good. To make things worse, my laptop is broken, so my lunch times stitching needs to be spent typing up an essay for my art course. And damn, updating craftster on my htc desire is annoying sometimes. So yeah, roll on weekend after next, holiday.

if it's a lighter colored material i lay a piece of carbon paper down and then my original sketch and trace over the sketch to transfer the lines. that's what i did for the ones i just did. if it's darker fabric i make a kind of stencil by cutting out key lines or little holes at key intersections and mark through them to the fabric with a white colored pencil. then i use the sketch for reference and use the pencil to just kind of "fill in" the lines and stuff i need to finish out the design. it's kind of an awkward bass-ackward way of going about it, but i have lots of colored pencils. i don't have fancy transfer paper or anything. =)

i sent today! mail lady says it should arrive thursday or friday!  Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

i use the bots crayolas. if the lines havent transferred as dark as i like ( like this round) on darkish fabric, i couldnt see the pink pencil lines so i grabbed a purple crayola marker.  rinsed out no problem. so i you have a vague outline... have you thought about a light chalk or powder pounce?

Thanks everyone for the transfering tipps eventhough I didn't ask the question. I have been thinking about how to transfer the pattern this time since it will be quite fine and the transfer pen I own makes too broad lines. I guess I will just mark some points and then use a soft pencil.

Someone in the last round was talking about using freezer paper and a printer to transfer. It worked well for me. basically cut a sheet of freezer paper down to printer paper size, iron it to your fabric that's the same size or smaller plastic side facing fabric, lining up the edge that will go through first (from my experience) and print it, using the fabric as the side that gets the ink. Peal off the paper and hoop it. The ink should wash out, though I don't know, I do it all backwards and from underneath so I didn't have to worry about it.

I do the same thing. My fabric was light enough that I just layed the drawing under it over my screen and traced the outlines with pencil.

I don't know anything about this transferring, so this is all useful info!
