Remember this darling bicycle girl video by Kate Spade? Well, by connecting with the artist, Meghan Eplett on Pinterest, I was able to find this line drawing of the girl on the bike. (Are you not on Pinterest yet? Um, what is taking you so long?! Seriously, get thee to the Pinterest!)
When I saw the drawing, I thought to myself, "Hey, wouldn't that be a cute embroidery? Why yes, Kara, it would."
So I asked Meghan if I could use her design for my little project and she gave me the green light.
At that point it was a matter of transferring the design onto the fabric. I decided to use a flour sack towel as a practice material for this. If this works out, I might upgrade the material. But for now the flour sack worked great because it's thin enough that I could place the drawing underneath and just trace it through the fabric using a fabric pencil.
Well, hello there, missy!
She is now fully transferred and I have started stitching. Stay tuned...
