I printed out primary paper, enlarged it, had Emily write her name and then using this pen, I traced and ironed it on the linen. Then embroidered. The pen says permanent but it washed out in the wash on this particular fabric. I don't know if it will on other fabrics or if left to sit for a long time. This was only on the fabric for about 2 days.
And so Jenny Bean doesn't feel left out, there is one started for her too. They will both stay in the embroidery hoops so they can hang on the wall.
I got the idea from this flickr person. She uses a nice, neat font but I thought it would be more personal for my sister and Jenny B if Emily wrote their names.
