Today I felt like some mindless stitching. As per ALWAYS, I neglected my large stitching project that has been hanging over for far too long........ Anyways, I just wanted a quick, simple little sumpint to relax with whilst my little man slept. Now I don't know if this is the done thing, or if it's something that's frowned upon by the stitching community, or maybe something children do at School, but I think it's way easier way of getting a design from paper to the fabric. My scrap piece of fabric was Home Dec weight and therefore way to heavy to hold up against the window to trace my image on. I don't own a fancy projector or light box, so I improvised. I started tracing the inner circle of my little embroidery hoop on some plain white copy paper. Then freehand (roughly) drew my words (LOVE) inside said circle.
So tell me is this something that is done or shun?
