So I have been working on learning how to do embroidery (it think  Roll Eyes ). Here is the first successful think I have made for my sister.


there is a back story of course! we were in this old hotel and she saw these fleur de lies and said she liked them but didnt know what they were, and when I told her she thought I said a Florida Leaf!! any who I made this for her for her new apartment.

so now on to my actual question. lol! I have made a new pattern I want to put on some pillow cases, the thing is they are tan, how do I get them on there? With the last ones I put the pattern that I drew under the material and traced it on with a dissipearing ink pen. how do i do this???

they make transfer paper where you can use this pen or pencil to draw your design on this special paper then iron it on to the fabric. I think they might have it at walmart in the embroidery section..I also have a vauge memory of crayons on wax paper ironed on...but that could be my pain meds talking to me.

You can use the sulky iron on transfer pen on paper (like just regular copier/printer paper) then iron it onto your fabric - you don't have to draw directly onto the fabric (which I think is what you're saying you did for your florida leaf, right?).

I size images on my computer (but you don't have to use a computer), print them out and then use a window or light table to transfer the design onto a blank sheet of paper with the sulky pen.

Just remember if you're doing lettering to reverse it so that when you iron it on it reads right!

I hope this makes sense & helps you out...

Oh I copy all the stuff I do...My hubby will draw it or like mydogsjack said I trace from the computer.  I have done like 2 or 3 free hands but almost always trace it especially the letters and words cause I have terrible handwriting...
