Cut a piece of silk 40cm down the selvedge of the fabric by 40cm across the width. Cut a piece of batiste the same size, making sure both pieces of fabric have been cut on the straight of grain. To do this, a thread can be pulled both horizontally and vertically and the fabric cut along the lines formed. Trace the design from the pattern sheet onto the tracing paper with the fine black felt pen. Place the traced design under the silk fabric, positioning it so that it is square and also in the centre. A centre point is marked on your design. Trace the design onto the fabric using the 2B pencil. To keep the lines light and accurate, the pencil should be sharp. Do not trace over any markings other than the design outline. If you have trouble seeing the design lines,a lightbox can be used, or the design taped to a sunlit window or a glass-topped coffee table with a light beneath it.
