I have some beautiful vintage transfers and although some of them I would love to see as embroidery I feel torn apart about using them, especially the ones in the dear little booklets I have just collected. Do any of you feel the same?
Fear no more because one of my regular lovely readers of my blog Julie (K C Court) got in touch with me and told me what she does so that she can use the transfer but not use it in a way that is gone forever or indeed torn from a booklet or cut out in anyway, therefore preserving its history and being.
When you see a transfer you would like to use then make sure it is the correct way up (on the darker side of the transfer) and photo copy it then use a pen to trace it and then iron that onto your linen or cotton. Not just any pen mind, there are two kinds of pen that Julie recommends.
