I like to draw. I also like to embroider - usually on flour sack cloth tea towels or napkins or pillowcases. I'm looking for the best way (neatest, most crisp) to get my designs on the fabric. I've tried tracing with a fabric pen or pencil and transfer paper but haven't loved the results.
I'm not sure if my issues are technique or materials (using the right technique but the wrong brands, perhaps) or something else. Would love brand recommendations, materials, etc. Thanks!
