With Sue's method the line drawing is traced onto tissue and then you stitch through the tissue onto the fabric. Here I have finished the lower part of the image on a cream cotton. The hat is going to be done with black felt so now I will overlay the black felt and stitch that down before I remove the tissue paper. When removing the tissue paper the finger nail is put against the stitching and gently pulled so as to try and not pull the stitches. I always find that part a bit tricky. Once this bit is done the fun bit will begin.
