Embroidery, a First Attempt

Tuesday, October 14, 2008

I'm getting prepared for a much larger project that requires some embroidery...or lots of embroidery. This is my first attempt at something far more complicated than what I plan to do, but who doesn't like lavender sachets?

I sort of took the pattern from here, traced over it in Adobe Illustrator, and made my own adjustments. [Edit 2/9/11: I've placed the lavender template I used at the bottom of the post.]

Quick Tip on How To Transfer a Design from Paper to Fabric: Buy a heat transfer pencil (I bought my at Jo Ann's) and trace over your printed/paper design. Use an iron to transfer the paper design to the fabric. It comes out really faint, but that's probably a good thing.
