Embroidered Basket Tutorial Part #1

I recently asked my Joyful Embellishment Facebook group if they would like to embroider a basket of flowers together and there was a lot of interest!  To start the project, simply right click on the image of the basket of flowers and save it to your computer.

I printed mine out to see what size it was and I decided to reduce the image by 75%.

Now you can decide between two different ways of transferring your image.  I usually transfer my image to Golden Threads quilting paper.  You can lay the paper on top of the image and trace it or….

You can cut a piece of freezer paper into an 81/2’’ x 11’’ size and iron the same size piece of Golden Threads paper to the shiny side.  You can then run it through your printer and make a copy of the basket on to the Golden Threads paper.  

Remove the printed pattern from the freezer paper and baste it to the fabric you using to embroider your basket of flowers!

See you on Wednesday with an update on my progress!

Happy Stitching,
