Last week I found a plain white pillowcase in the heaps of (clean!) laundry and I felt it would look much better with an owl and a pussycat in a Pea Green Boat embroidered on it. I got out my new Sulky pen this morning and (because it transfers the image reversed of course) I simply turned around my printed pattern and traced the lines (which could be clearly seen on the back) with the Sulky pen. Ironed it on the pillowcase and I was impressed with the clear result. The lines were quite 'fat' (as you can see in the photos below) so it's maybe not ideal for delicate embroidery patterns but for this pattern it was perfect!
I choose DMC 470 to embroider the Pea Green Boat. In the photo I tried to capture a back stitch and
...a row of back stitches. Looking very much forward to seeing your Owls & Pussycats!
I'm planning to include more stitching info and photos with my new patterns as well. At the moment I'm quite busy writing a piece about how to stitch Animal Furs which will go with the Sleeping Fox Pattern. After that I'm planning an Alphabet Tree Pattern (boy version) and I'm almost finished drawing a fun summer-y pattern as well.
I enjoyed the Owl and Pussycat pattern so much that I'm curious which other Nursery Rhyme Pattern you would like to see from me? (ehm...not sure if that would be a freebie though!)
