Embroidery using the Doodle Stitching Transfer Pack

Using colourful thread to embellish clothing, household items, and art is lots of fun. As a child and teenager, I enjoyed learning the basic embroidery techniques. I think it is a fun way to add unique touches to our belongings such as pillowcases and napkins.

I enjoyed going through this Doodle Stitching Transfer Pack by Aimee Ray that has 300 beautiful designs of her popular motifs. We can tear the patterns from the perforated pages, and iron the reusable patterns onto fabric. Then grab a needle and thread, and start stitching animals, flowers, letters, balloons, embellishments, and more. 
There is no need to trace or photocopy when using this Doodle Stitching transfer pack. For example this design I did on a bag, I used the book as an inspiration and drew it. 
The author explains popular stitches we can do when embroidering in the beginnig of the book that is useful for beginners, and to inspire those who are already familiar with embroidery.
Click the image to see how to do Scallop stitch, Threaded running stitch, and cross stitch.
I like that the pack comes with a handy, sealable envelope in the back of the book for us to store the motifs we take out from the book for future applications.
