  • Tea Towel with Iron-on Transfer Pens

    How to Use Iron-on Transfer Pens for Hand Embroidery

    Iron-on Transfer Pens – a Must-Have Embroidery Tool Learn how to use Sulky Iron-on Transfer Pens for hand embroidery and embellishments.

Plus, if your stitches don’t cover the area as intended, the subtle hue peeking out from beneath the thread conceals imperfections. The featured project below is a tea towel blank, hand embroidered with a “London” design for our tourmates on our 2023 London Craftours trip. This workshop includes both the Iron-on Transfer Pen method and the Sulky Stick ‘n Stitch method for embroidery transfer. Tourmates…

    Beach Tote Pattern with Machine Embroidery

    Beach Tote Pattern – Reimagined from the Aurora Bag A beach tote doesn’t have to be fussy or complicated. But it does need to be roomy and easy to wear.
