Made this for a collie mad friend!
As always, I don't use pattern transfers. I marked off an area of felt with pencil though.
I used back stitch for the whole peice.
I used different thicknesses of thread to get certain effects. Sometimes it is easier to get nicer shapes with thinner thread. You can double up single thread and seperate thicker threads.
