  • How to make a poster. Cinco De Mayo Decorations From Embroidery Pattern - Step 1
    Step 1

    **APOLOGY FOR THE BLURRY PIC! :[ ** A few years ago, I embroidered a t-shirt with the burro pattern from Colonial Patterns' "Aunt Martha's #3853."

    I simply cut around the images I wanted, freeing them from the rest of the pattern. Then, using scotch tape, I taped them to the window.

    Next, I scotch taped a piece of white computer paper over the top of the pattern, and traced it using my sharpie (in addition to the burro, I also did these awesome pottery jars!).
