No problem.

And don't worry. Satin stitch LOOKS easy and the theory seems easy, but to get it right, it definitely takes practice, and I can't honestly say I always get it right either.

I just bought a Dritz double-sided marking pen. The purple side is actual disappearing ink. The blue side is the Mark-B-Gone ink that comes out with water. Both are very useful! :D

This is an awesome tutorial and i am so excited to try this! I have one question tho...in the satin stitching, a comment said that you should come back up next to your previous stitch and not cross back up to the top And stitch down every time, is the same true for the long/short stitch? :confused:

I like the idea of drawing right on the fabric with vanishing ink, but I suck at drawing. Is there a method to tracing it on from paper or are there temporary iron on transfers I could get somewhere?

Thanks for your tips! My mother-in-law has a tacky Christmas sweater contest at school, so I helped her convert a Halloween sweater into a REALLY tacky Christmas sweater, and got to employ some of the stitching hints here! We changed ghosts into snowmen, added bows to the jack-o-lanterns, and of course added battery powered lights. I didn't get a picture of it though! I'll have to get her to send me one.

Hiya, I just started stitching. I just bought some awesome patterns off of etsy! I bought a tutorial book along with supplies, but the codes the book uses are different from the codes on the pattern. Does anyone know what "Mark" "code" and "Ct" mean on patterns?
