I drew this cute little russian nesting doll with the intention of embroidering it. I kept her simple. Very simple. Almost too simple now that I look at her…¬†

Anyway, if you’re wondering how I turned this:

into this:

I’ll show you!

First you take your drawing (or embroidery transfer) and tape it to a window. I taped mine to my sliding glass door.

Then you will want to take your fabric and tape it over your pattern.

Next step, tracing! Most people use a fabric marker to trace embroidery patterns, since they are water-soluble and any visible lines will come off with a little bit of water. My fabric marker is gone and has been for a while now, thank-you Emma. So I just use a pencil. Whatever works, right?

After you have your whole pattern traced onto your fabric you are ready to start embroidering! Now that was easy, wasn’t it?

I plan on getting this image scanned into my computer¬†very soon. And as soon as I do, I’ll be sure to share it with you!
