ive never embroidered before, only done cross-stitch.  SO...i wanna join in, and do an embroidered onesie or something for my bub, but could someone help out with a technicality first.  How do you transfer an image onto your fabric?  (Apart from freehand drawing, which I suck at)

If you have a deisgn you'd like to use, print it out on a piece of paper and use dressmaker's carbon paper underneath your image and trace your design.

You can also trace your image onto tracing paper with an iron-on transfer pencil and then iron it onto your fabric.

When I need to transfer a basic image, I draw the design on scrap paper, cut it out and trace around it with tailor's chalk or a fabric pen- then I just fill in all the details freehand

OMG FINISHED!

It took me long enough, but the finished product was a Christmas present for my dad(finished approximately 2:30 a.m. on Christmas day, thankyouverymuch). The design is George Harrison of The Beatles' Fender Stratocaster(circa Sgt. Pepper), which he painted himself and called Rocky. I tried to stay as true to the original as I could, but ended up having to cheat a bit. There are some missing frets, no fret markers, no tuning knobs and a LOT of scale issues.


Sorry about the picture quality. My flash wouldn't work cause the camera was dying. Tongue

This was a VERY frustrating and time-consuming project, but I kind of like how it turned out. It could have been a LOT LOT better, but hey. We'll call it a learning experience. ^_^ Plus, I needed that practice for the series of patches I'm going to be making soon, so I'm really glad that I did it.
