I've been stitching away slowly on the padded satin stitch on the Etui front piece. I needed a break from it and kept moving ahead on some of the preliminary preparations. In class we ironed interfacing to the back only of the front piece of the Etui after tracing only the main design. But none of the fold lines or outside lines were transferred in class. Nor the little grape design that's on the inside front of the completed case. So out comes the light box and I traced the outside and fold lines in blue washout marker. I traced the little grape motif in fine line mechanical pencil, my favorite way of transferring an embroidery design.
All embroidery designs and pattern markings had to be transferred onto the rest of the linen prior to ironing on the rest of the interfacing.
Same with the little pin disc and covered tape measure. After all designs and patterns are traced, then the rest of the iron-on interfacing is applied according to manufacturer's instructions.
The last step was to thread trace all outside lines and pattern markings on the sewing machine.
