Sticky Fabri-Solvy

This week I ordered a product I am crazy about. It is called Sticky Fabri-Solvy. I really enjoy embroidery but I don't like using my light box and trying to get the design on the muslin that way. One of the blogs I visit all of the time is called Bird Brain Designs.I have used their designs for years. I found myself not embroidering as much anymore because of the light box issue. They have offered this product for a long time and I finally broke down and bought some. I am smitten.
I took my pattern I was using and scanned it into my computer. I took a piece of the paper that is in this package.
Put this in like regular printer paper and printed the design on to one side of the paper, then peeled the paper off that was holding the sticky, web like stuff and pressed it to my muslin.

Sorry I took it off my hoop so you could see it. Then when I am all finished with the stitching I just get it wet in warm water and it dissolves and my design will look like it was always there. I have so many projects I can do now that I have been putting off.
I want to do Calendula Patterdrips Cottage from Crab-apple Hill
I have put it off for a year because I just couldn't face tracing the designs using a light box..  So now I don't have any more excuses.
I just had to share this because if you are like me and like to embroider and have put this off this is a great product. Now I wish I was receiving some kind of kudos for this commercial but I am not. I was just so excited about this stuff.   I just thought I would share.
It is nice to work with too, my needle doesn't have any trouble going through it, like with some other products I have used before. Oh and the ladies at Bird Brain designs are fantastic. They sent my order next day without charging me. I forgot how much I had enjoyed buying things from them. They also offer lots of different freebie designs.  Meg and Crab-Apple Hill is just as nice too and both blogs are fun to visit and dream.
Thanks for stopping by,
