Ok I just bought some paper, after reading about "sulky" water soluble paper on here. This stuff looks almost the same it's called aquatics paper. But I'm so scared to use it. It says it's ok for hand embroidery (what I want to do really is just have random patterns) The instructions are for this really crazy mini project that I don't understand. Such as, choose a piece of tissue lame and cut to size, and I don't have a clue what tissue lame is?

What I'm basically trying to do is move on from iron on transfers to embroider something new. But it seems I'm not going to be able to do it with this paper becuase I don't understand the instructions. I'm also scared I've wasted money on something I'll mess up. and feeling very uninspired :s

Just wondered if anyone out there could offer any advice? Do I just draw on it, (well I'll trace) pin it to the fabric and sew right through it?

Why do instructions decide I also want to add glitter chiffon and tissue lame?

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

All I could think of was poor lame tissue, it can't help it...... Cheesy I have no idea what tissue lame is.

I always use sulky and just draw on the sulky "paper". Does the paper you have look like a clear piece of plastic? I usually just take a sharpy and trace over the picture (put the sulky over the picture and trace) I want then safety pin it to the material. Maybe this will help a little bit.

Can you cut a small piece of the aquatics paper and test it out? See if you can draw on it and do what you want with it?

Smiley Tissue Lame is a specialty fabric, usually found in "special occasions" sections of fabric stores.  It's a very lightweight fabric, usually being sparkly or metallic, etc.  Here's a link to some at fabric.com:
