Supplies needed are:
- Pencil/water soluble pen
- Embroidery hoop (is helpful but not necessary if a thicker fabric is used)
Materials needed are:
- Fabric; Medium weight cotton approximately 14x16cm. Many types of fabric can be used denim, felt or a piece of clothing or housewares. A lighter colour fabric is easier to transfer the pattern onto. A stiff fabric is easier to sew on especially if you don’t have an embroidery hoop.
- Thread; Six Strand embroidery cotton. Red, orange, yellow, green, black and white or choose your own colours.
