Instructables

Step 11: Additional information and recommendations.

The stitches in this instructable are just the beginning!

I've also published an instructable over how to transfer embroidery patterns, which should be useful if you're just starting out!

To create a pattern, you can draw on the fabric (there are water soluble markers!), or use iron on transfers or carbon paper to copy a design onto the fabric. (There are two examples of iron on transfer patterns below - they're from Sublime Stitching. :D)

You can get many free patterns online - I use http://blog.craftzine.com/ because they link to a lot of them!

As far as shopping for supplies and patterns, you can check your local craft/sewing retailer or try these websites:
http://pimpstitch.com/
http://www.sublimestitching.com/ - They have great beginners kits!
