Dec. 2nd, 2006 @ 03:56 pm Google let me down
Or maybe it doesn't exist

Any one here know if a site that one can down load drawings to transfer? I have a particular interest in PA Dutch Hex signs, or other folk art motifs. I don't like counted patterns, just  want an outline, as I can't draw for anything.....

Thank you!

I haven't found any transferable drawings with just the outline, but several images that can be blown up (using Word or similar) to wanted size, printed and then traced using see-through paper. I use a very soft pencil (or chalk) in a suitable colour on regular baking paper, turn the baking paper onto the fabric and rub or re-trace on the back with something blunt. Usually the pencil colour shows just enough on the fabric to see where to stitch using the original printed image as a guide, but sometimes I have to re-trace directly on the fabic following the vague rubbed-on print.

Linky to my google search here.
