Image Transfer and brown bag

I actually sacrificed a piece of "That Cloth" (super soft linen) and did an image transfer with a copy made from a copier using a toner cartridge. The purpose of making this transfer on to soft linen is so that I can go back into the design with stitch. I printed these designs on cloth and found the cloth itself very difficult to send a needle through so I will keep these fabrics and use them as printed "fabric".
I have been doing some needle work on this linen piece which I will expand on in a future post. In working I found I wanted to use some sari yarns and couch them down but I need to actually buy appropriate colored sari yarns so I'm at a bit of a standstill for now.

Use CitraSolv to transfer the copy.
