One thing I have often wondered in the past is how to transfer stitching and embroidery designs to felt or those difficult fabrics that are too heavy to see through with a light box. Now I wonder no more after finding the Sulky Transfer Pen, so I thought I would share the details with you.
You will need a Sulky Iron-On Transfer Pen, felt, paper and a little imagination.
Draw your design onto plain paper, the design will be reversed when printed on the fabric so just keep this in mind.
Place the drawing onto your felt (right side down) and press lightly. Lift the edge of the paper to check the transfer and you are done. Told you it was quick and simple.
The nib of the pen is quite thick so you have to be light handed when drawing if you like fine lines to stitch over but it does open up quite a lots of options for design and fabric choice.
If you are wondering, this is the pen I used when making my army of toadstools - it was a blessing, making cutting dozens of pattern pieces a breeze.
And don't forget the kids! I think when Isabelle is a little older I will have her draw a special picture with the pen that can be transferred and stitched over to make into her own personal masterpiece for her bedroom, or even teacher gifts.....
