I was lucky enough to have everything in my stash. 😀
I have photocopied the fox from the Enchanted Forest coloring book. Katie suggests in her video tutorial that you enlarge 170% but my home photocopier only goes to 140%. This is quite a nice size for this project for me. I am thinking that instead of a cushion, I will most likely frame my finished piece.
The next job will be to trace it onto my fabric, using my lovely light box that was a gift from my brother. If you don't have a light box there are some wonderful new slimline ones on the market or you can take your piece to a window, place them against the windowpane, and trace it that way.
I have a little stitch practice piece set up in my embroidery hoop. I have drawn the foxes nose lightly in pencil. As I haven't done satin stitch in awhile I thought this a good idea. I will show you my steps as I go along.
