new embroidery pattern!
Originally uploaded by merwing✿little dear
it's been awhile, but I have a new pattern for you! it's available in PDF form in either of my little dear shops. http://littledear.etsy.com or http://littledear.artfire.com
This is a pretty complex pattern, when I stitched it up, I pretty much made it up as I went along! Feel free to follow the pattern as it is, or just use the outline and face if you like, and fill in her hair with whatever you want. ;)
I like offering my embroidery patterns as PDF files, 1. because it's really easy (and free!) for me to email them to you, and 2. You have the freedom to use whatever transfer method you like best.
Personally, I trace my patterns onto fabric using a light table (you can use a sunny window if you don't have one) and a fabric pen. I like being able to remove my pattern lines when I'm done stitching. But, if you prefer an iron-on transfer, guess what? You can make them yourself! All you have to do is print out the pattern on a laser printer, or make a photocopy, and use it as an iron-on. Be sure to reverse the image first, especially if it has text. The lines will be more or less permanent, but you can re-use your pattern several times.
What is your favorite pattern transfer method? :)
