any of you gals do redwork here?...I do and I found a really cute pattern today at Beverley's fabric and it' not the usual ones that I have bought in the past that you iron on this one requires that you tape the piece to the material then trace it onto the material...my question is have any of you done this before and if so any tricks you could tell me that would help with this little process?....

I've used those colored carbon sheets for transferring patterns before - pretty straight forward. You just make sure the colored side faces the fabric. If you don't trust the steadiness of your hand, tape them down first. Make sure you are on a firm surface, like a table.

I've also used a iron-on ink but haven't seen it in years. you traced the wrong side of the pattern, then ironed it on. I think it was supposed to be good for quite a few times.

the iron on is the only ones I have ever used but I needed to graguate to something alittle more challenging because the iron on nes are very limited to choices mostly the days of the week chicken or ducks etc....thanks for the tip I will probably tape it down so it won't slip...

You can get iron on transfer pencils (wally world, hobby lobby, etc.) I use them with coloring book pages, or coloring pages i find on the internet to make transfers...tracing paper and a coloring book work pretty well. I've also used them to "revive" used hot iron transfers.

You can buy pens from Sulky that iron on anything you feel like tracing. I have done 2 quilts with them. I traced the coloring book pages, my daughter and I colored them with the fabric markers, and they were beautiful. I also have a Christmas tablecloth done that way. we had such fun coloring with the markers. it has held up for 12 years. So you could do red work out of anything you could trace. :mrgreen:
