This new project was already for a year in my closet. I bought the design from Talliaferro.
Check out their website, they have the most beautiful designs.
The fabric I'll use is linen twill with a calico backing fabric. A mirror image of this drawing will be traced on the calico.
I have improvised a light-box.
An old zinc bowl, a small towel to support the bulb, a strong bulb and a glass plate.
The glass plate was meant to cut vegetables or meat.
The glass plate rests on the zinc bowl....
...the light is turned on ...
...and the pattern is visible through the calico.
A small part of the traced drawing.
The finished drawing on the calico.
Here I have basted the calico on the backside of the linen twill.
