Dish Towel Transfer

This is how I transfer an image to a dish towel for embroidery...

all I need is a sunny window...

I draw my picture (or copy one of the Man-Cub's) and then tape that to the window and then tape my dish towel over it and trace - just with a regualr pencil - it washes out - and then I'm ready to embroider - I can't show you any completed ones yet - they're for Christmas - of course...

You can see some of the Man-Cub's work here -
