Embroidery Design Collection III





Here's some lovely pictures for us to drool over together. I just got it in the mail. I would love to embroider some of these designs onto jeans, but I don't know how to transfer the design to such a dark color. My faves are the ballerina and the girl with ther kerchief in her hair. This is a really beautiful book.

Those are so adorable!! I like the fruits, the chair, and the birdcage. Isn't there some kind of white pencil for darker fabrics?

You can buy Saral transfer paper -- you put it business-side down on the fabric, then put the pattern on top and trace down (hard) on the lines of the pattern -- the Saral will transfer the image in white on your fabric. Works great!

Oh I am all over this one. Do you order these online or can you find them in a store near you?
