The transfer of handsome frog - step-by-step
1. I always apply tricot interfacing to the back of the fabric to prevent fraying... It MUST be tricot...and this tip I learned from Allie and will forever be grateful.
2. You MUST make a reverse copy of your image so it will appear correctly on the front of your piece. If you look in options or preferences all printers can do this... Sometimes it is referred to as a "mirror" image.
But they will bite off parts in bits.....and it really matters NOT where they start... The same is true of cut-away transferring. It matters not where you start as long as you do it in "bites" of bits.
2. My first bite I cut away will be his foot. I put the footless frog back on top of my image and trace the line where I cut away.
After the chain stitch is done I could cut away the top layer of lace and start adding the cording... Once the cording is stitched on top of the chain stitch and the beading is done, I can cut the entire frog out (all layers) and applique it on my project.
You can use this technique to apply an image to the front of your piece as well but it would mean making marks on your fabric...something I am always hesitant to do...
