Ellie and I are trying a little embroidery.
First we practiced basic stitches.
Then the transfer pens got here (THESE ARE SO COOL) and we made designs for a bigger project.
Disappearing ink pens don’t work for us when we do big projects because the humidity removes the marks them in about half an hour. I mark sewing projects with ball point sometimes. I’ve got my eye out for an iron-away marking pen.
Pro Tip: A stabilizing fabric behind the working fabric is important. I didn’t know this when I did that little house thing over Christmas and it won’t iron out all nice and flat. We’re using the light weight interfacing that I had in my machine sewing stuff.
I’m already thinking about embroidering stuff on my knitting.
