this is what i love...

This week I'm taking it easy and taking some time for inspiration. I'll be sharing a series of posts that feature things that I love. Nothing too serious, nothing too involved, just some things for fun.

Today, I have some of my favorite craft supplies. Mind you, some of these are obvious, but they're still fun! And so, this is what I love: Brown embroidery floss, transfer paper, and non-snag, one-piece Velcro.

(yes, this kind of Velcro is a bit expensive, but it's awesome...especially when working with felt!)


  1. Okay how have i never seen transfer paper? i know i'm a beginner as far as what i do with embroidery, but that would make things a lot easier I think! :-)

  2. Love the brown embroidery floss!

  3. How does that paper work? Is it iron on? When you draw the pattern on the material you are using do you use a washable media? I'm wondering becase everything I try doesn't wash out so I'm trying to decide what to do. Thanks!

  4. I love embroidery floss. I get all crazy when looking at pictures of them. ;o) And transfer paper is on my "to buy" list. :o)

  5. Woah, I've never seen transfer paper either.. must find some!

  6. Yeah, I'm also a little clueless when it comes to tracing paper and how exactly it works...

    Would you be able to use this on Polar Fleece Fabric? I'm very happy you posted this...Who knew?
    Now I do,thanks to you!


  8. Hi, I am curious...What is the velcro for? And do you use transfer paper to draw on felt??
    I work with felt all the time and my biggest problem is to trace desing on it.

  9. There were enough questions about the transfer paper, that I'll write up a whole post on it.

    About the velcro: I use it mainly for little pouches and things like that.
