One of the large sections, just right of center, is absolutely screaming for Sashiko. Do I know HOW? Oh, heck no, but that's never stopped me. It's not hard, and even if it's not exactly like a master would do, it's my spin on it. (Oh please, did I just say that? You'll need to remind me, k?!)
Yes, yes, I'll get to the point. I cannot figure out how to get the pattern onto the block! It is too thick to transfer with a light box or window (tried). My white chalk pencil will NOT write on the fabric, it's probably satin. I tried poking a paper print of the pattern and chalk pouncing. Unsuccessful, and made a terrible mess. Today, I think I will poke a plastic template and see if a purple air soluble pen will fit through the poked holes. Of course, I don't own the chalk transfer paper...AND WANNA DO THIS WITHOUT WAITING FOR IT TO SHIP!!! It didn't get very good reviews anyway!
Who has a transfer-secret up their sleeve? This woman is desperate!
