Pencil Drawing Transfers

First, I drew the bird in my sketchbook. After that, I copied the image (on my printer) onto some fabric transfer paper, then ironed it down onto fabric. (You can see that it flips the image). One tip: Make sure the image is dark enough to stand up to the other colors in the fabric swatch. Sometimes a very soft pencil drawing fades out, so I add darker areas in pencil or Sharpie.
