I have these zodiac embroidery patterns and I intend to make a set, but I first had to figure out how to transfer the pattern, which prints out on regular printer paper.  I remembered that I have these transfer tools in my sewing toolbox, but I've never used them:
Check out that blue thing:
Bonkers.  That's my fabric, too.  It's black denim and I'm not quite sure if it is the right choice.  I used some of the yellow chalky transfer paper from one of the older Dritz kits.  I tried to do all the markings and it was a mess, so then I just did the stars of the pattern and this was the result:
That may be the way to go.  I'm not sure.  Also, I picked up some nice pearl cotton thread (or whatever it's called) and I think I'll use that instead of regular embroidery floss.  It's so luxurious.  I picked up a thing of cream, but I'm not sure if that's the right color.  


  1. The blue thing is called a tracing wheel

  2. I remember all of those Dritz tracing wheels and papers from when my parents had their sewing/appliance store in the 50's.
