Our daughter Kelli has caught the embroidery bug. I love it because she’s been sharing some of her projects with me. She gave me a piece for my birthday that I have to frame. Now she started stitching on this…
It’s one of the panels from this AMAZING quilt.
She just learned to embroider and is doing an amazing job. I admit it. The pattern is actually one that I had purchased a couple years ago but got stuck before I even started. I didn’t know how to transfer the picture to the fabric. Two years pass, Kelli takes the pattern and ends up teaching me…She used a Sewline Fabric Pencil to trace the picture to the fabric. I remember the old days of pens and then the pen marks didn’t come out….UGH. This pencil is great!
Here she is using the teal pencil on the muslin fabric…the pencil marks are easy to see. I was so in love with the pencils that I contacted the company and asked if they would send me some pens that I could give away to you my wonderful blog readers…and they said YES! In fact, they sent me a whole box of goodies to try and test so watch for more giveaways from Sewline to come.
They have a wonderful website with lots of good videos and picture tutorials like this one showing how to change the lead and a video of how to use the pencil. If you are looking for a place to purchase the pencils, check your local quilt shop.
Sewline was so generous. They sent THREE sets like this giveaway….
The set includes the pencil, lead, and an eraser. So wondering how you can win?? Just leave a comment here telling me what you would use the Sewline Fabric Pencil for. I will pick three winners on Tuesday.
