So I have this huge pattern that I've printed out from my computer, how/what do I use so that I can use this pattern that's on normal printer paper? Also, my pattern is currently broken onto multiple pages...

I like using an iron-on transfer pen. You just trace over the lines with the pen and then the regular sheet of computer paper becomes an iron-on transfer. You can get it for less than $3 at someplace like Michael's or Joanne Fabrics.

Hope this helps!

I like using clover chacopy transfer paper (originally recommended to me by crafty gurlllll)  I like using transfer paper because if I make a mistake transferring I can easily get a damp washcloth and wipe off my error.

The only thing to be cautious of with the iron-on transfer pencil (turning your paper into an iron on transfer) is that it'll be a mirror image, unless you use a light board (or window) and trace onto the back of your paper.  I've used Solvy by Sulky, so far, for my transfers--a stabilizer that you can trace onto (it's transparent), then washes away.  However, I imagine it'd get a bit costly depending on the size transfer you have.  But I've read mixed reviews of the different pencils out there, so this, for me, seemed like the safer choice.

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

I LOVE the Solvy by Sulky. It is the best ever. I highly recommend it.
