DIYU: Transfer Photo or Drawing to Embroidery Pattern
When I come up with one I like I continue to fine tune using my light box. Don’t have a light box? You could use a sunny window as well-just tape your images to the window. (I wasn’t happy with her mouth-I decided I wanted a more serene look on her face.)
When I’m all ready with a final sketch I get my fabric ironed (a sturdy cotton will do)
Here is a quick guide to the stitches I used for miss priss (these are the stitches I use most often in all my embroidery patterns)
