The pattern for the Lovebirds project is given here as a .jpg file. This file can be easily enlarged or reduced to the desired size using your computer's photo editing software (I used the pattern full size to create my version of this project, but you can choose to make the design any size you wish).
Fold the square of evenweave fabric into quarters and mark the center point of the base fabric. Center the pattern under the fabric and *trace the embroidery design onto the fabric using the water-soluble fabric marking pen.
Embroider the design using two strands of the six-strand embroidery floss throughout.
*TIP: If you have difficulty seeing the pattern through the fabric, use a light box, or trace the design by holding the fabric and pattern up to a window.
