Rug Hooking Pattern & Red Dot Tracing Fabric

Hello everyone! I've just added my first rug hooking to my Etsy shop. Don't worry punch needlers', I couldn't give up punch needle even if I wanted to, (and I don't). I'll be carrying both punch needle and rug hooking patterns. 

There will be 2 listings for each rug hooking pattern. The 1st listing is for the PDF digital download that you can download instantly. The 2nd is a mailed pattern with the option to have it traced on red dot tracing fabric, in the drop-down menu. I've had some questions about the red dot tracing fabric, so I thought I would show you how this transfer fabric works. When you get your pattern in the mail, the picture will already be drawn on the transfer fabric.
This is what it looks like, you can buy it by the yard. I put it on something dark blue so you could see how thin it is.
I just tape it over the pattern I'm wanting to transfer. Remember, this will already be done for you, I just wanted to show you how it worked from the beginning to the end.
I trace it on with a Sharpie.
All traced, there's a closeup below. This is what it will look like when it comes in the mail if you choose that option.
Now, you just lay it on top of your monk's cloth or linen, and just trace over the pattern with a Sharpie.
Nice and easy, no flipping the pattern over or needing a light source to transfer the pattern. Below are the links to Seeing Stars in my Etsy shop, both the PDF digital pattern and the mailed patter. If you have any questions, I'm just an email away, thanks for dropping by!!!
