This is a new project that I am starting soon. I love the outline stitch, find it very relaxing to do and really just love these bird designs. The problem...I hate to trace these detailed patterns on the background fabric. I usually use a lead pencil, I trace lightly and my lines disappear, or I don't trace enough of the detail and my design doesn't look right. I just purchased some Transfer Ease, a product that you run through your printer to copy the paper design on the water dissolvable interfacing material and then embroider over, followed by a cool water rinse to dissolve the interfacing. I'm going to try it, since I hate tracing, but if you have a better way, I'd love to hear about it. Thanks!
