I'm working on a fun little project for everyone to stitch! If you are familiar with transfer embroidery, then this will seem really simplistic to you. BUT, if you have never tried it before, then this is the perfect beginner project! I am going to post Monday and Tuesday's transfers today, then I will post each day's transfer design the each day the rest of this week.
Here's how it works, if you don't know how. Print out the design onto regular paper. You can save yourself a step by printing it out as a mirror image if your printer has that feature, but I will give you full instructions here assuming you don't.
Once you have it printed, trace the image onto tracing paper. Use a good, dark stroke so when you flip the tracing paper over you can clearing see it.
Now, trace the image again, but use a transfer pencil, such as a Clover red pencil used for transfering designs for embroidery. It will be backwards, but this is what you want. Once you have the entire image traced with the transfer pencil, position the image with this backward image down on the fabric you wish to embroider on. Floursack towels make a great first time project!
Lightly iron the paper using a press cloth. The image will transfer onto the fabric. Ouila! You have a transferred image to embroider using basic embroidery stitches! These are designed to be stitched using only the basic backstitch and whatever color of embroidery thread you choose. There is only one french knot required, and that is in the "i" in the word Friday, when it comes around....
Have fun! These are great for dishtowels!
I hope you have fun with these!
