I have a question.  I have a picture I want to embroider on my knitting bag... how do I transfer the pattern to the fabric so that I can embroider it???

there's special transfer paper you can get (in different colors) I think it's called wax-free transfer paper or something like that.  Basically it's just like carbon paper from back in the day.  you put it between your picture and your fabric and trace over the picture with a pencil and the design transfers.

I also saw on here somewhere that someone said you can print out a reversed image on a laser printer (I think she said it was an HP but that shouldn't matter) and then iron it on for a faint impression.

Good luck.

You can also buy iron-on transfer paper that you can print off on...easy to do... I prefer that to the time to tracing

Guys I've made an awesome new discovery! Blue and yellow mixed together makes an entirely different color... I'm gonna call it, BLELLOW!!!!
