That anatomical heart hoop is cool. Smiley

I received from fancybutch today. She was a sweetheart and sent my hoop express mail from Canada....not at all necessary, but thank you!

I got her first try at a felted hoop piece. Get ready to start pinning, because this little guy is cute! Great job. Thank you!

Love the recent additions! I'm sending out tomorrow! I had some slight issues with a transfer pencil that decided to not wash out fully! I think I got it to the point where its only noticeable to me!!

I have not found a marking pencil that I really like ever - I have some where the design doesn't last long enough and marks are gone before I am halfway done stitching and others that I wash 3 times and I still see traces of the marks behind. If I am on a light enough fabric, my favorite method is an iron-on pencil that leaves very clear lines and there is no distortion from trying to trace with a pencil that can pull on the fabric a bit in the fine details. It does not always wash out well tho so you have to make sure to cover every bit of the design with floss.

Has anyone tried an iron-on pen? I think sulky makes different colors. All I have ever seen in the store are the pencils in red.

I use a blue wash away marker that I got at Jo Ann's. It bleeds all over the place on some fabrics, but after I am done, I hold my embroidery under the bath tub faucet and soak the heck out of it. (It says to dab with a wet towel, but that NEVER works well.)

If I am using crayons to fill in empty spaces, I use a plain old pencil. I just have to be very, very careful not to draw where I don't plan on stitching, because that can become an issue really quick.

The only other way I've tried was on dark material and I traced my pattern onto a piece of tissue paper (very carefully) pinned it to the material and embroidered right on to the paper and through the material, when I was done I ripped the paper away (doing the little parts with tweezers). Not my favorite way, but on black material, it worked. I tried using a white seamstress pencil, but I couldn't get it to make any marks.  Huh 

I am still new to this, so I haven't experiemented much.  I haven't heard of iron on pencil.  But we also don't have a store dedicated to quilting or embroidery out my way. I will have to look at Jo Ann's today when I go. (I always go on pay day.)  Wink

I have a black iron on pen and tracing paper, I use that sometimes.  I also have some carbon paper from Sublime Stitching that is amazing!  I can't say enough good things about it, I used the same 2 sheets about 50+ times in the past year and they are great!  Lately though I have been printing a lot of my patterns right onto the fabric by running them through my printer.  Its a great way to add pops of color, or if its a pattern with a lot of detail that's hard to trace.

Okay, I have to try this!  I want to try a pattern but was worried how I would get it all traced properly but now you've given me a plan.
