    Question Transferring design onto fabric

    Any ideas on how to do this? The design that I have in mind has lots of fine lines, it's not a technique that I've done before. I have read a bit about it and, have seen various techniques but which would be ideal for the beginner?

    I have a plain tote bag, off white in colour. The design has got quite a number of fine lines in it, was thinking of dressmaking carbon paper, but would that be too messy? Then you have the washable and removable aida or the lightbox method.

    Any advice would be appreciated. Thank you

    A lot would depend on just how tight a weave and how smooth your bag is. Dressmakers carbon is good .. but very fine lines are hard to transfer to fabric with any technique. Could you transfer the major design details and then follow the picture for the finer lines .. a bit like following a cross-stitch chart??

    In the past I have just drawn onto fabric using an ordinary pencil. There is also a pen/marker designed for transferring embroidery designs onto fabric that disappears of it's own accord after a certain time- can't remember how long though, or it's name, but am sure a google would be worth a go.

    You could try TAP transfer artist paper. You can draw or print the design and then iron it onto the surface you want.

    Or you could use a light box and transfer it that way

    I use a light box and a dissolving pen to trace onto fabric. The pen only needs wetting and it disappears. If you use an iron on transfer crayon DO NOT get it wet, you will not get it out if it gets wet!!
