I am transferring a pattern from La Patisserie to this fabric. I am really looking forward to stitching this little patisserie! The fabric I am transferring to is a nice 100% cotton.
When I can easily see the pattern through the fabric, I like to tape the pattern to a firm, smooth surface like my cutting mat. This is one of those "self-healing" mats that you can cut right on. I love it!
Then I put my fabric over the pattern and tape the fabric in place too. Now I can use my water soluble marking pen:
I usually keep a copy of the pattern I am transferring so I can refer to it while tracing:
Now I have the pattern ready to go! This is my big 10" embroidery hoop. I really like the way it holds the fabric so snug:
My next step is going to be color choices! So far, I love these:
I will keep posting progress reports on this one!
