I draw out the design I want in pencil, then trace over that in Aunt Martha's Transfer Pencil.  It is this weird pinky-red pencil that you iron on and can wash out (or be dabbed off with rubbing alcohol on a cotton swab).  You can also use transfer paper (kinda like carbon paper) and trace the design right onto your fabric.
I use an onionskin type paper to iron on the design so I can check to see how well it has transferred, and so I can place it back down if an area is too light.

The Aunt Martha pencil does not seem to transfer fine details very well, so it is handy to keep your original sketch nearby for reference.
