A transfer tip: The best results for?getting a pattern on knit fabrics is with an iron-on transfer or transfer pen. Carbon transfer paper, while great for smooth fabrics like cotton weave, just doesn't take too well to spongy, soft surfaces. Dangit!

Oh and: I worked with a hoop on this project. When working with stretchy fabrics on a hoop, be careful not to overdo (overstretch) it. if you really stretch the crud out of your fabric, your work will scrunch up in a way that will make you go boo hoo when you take it off the hoop. There will be no boo'ing and hoo'ing.

Instead of going over the instructions for getting a transfer pattern on fabric (those instructions come in each pack) or the basics of embroidering, I'm going to show you how to do whipping for the glow-in-the-dark accent. Let's whip it! We'll whip it good! (You had to see that one coming.)

The GITD thread can be stitched with all by itself, but beause it'sfine (unlike six-stranded floss), I'm going to whip it around myalready-worked embroidery stitches. Snazzy, huh?

Embroider the design completely. I worked everything in back stitch, which is so easy, but looks so, so...embroidered. After you've finished the embroidery, re-load your needle with GITD thread. I chose to match the color of the GITD thread to the color of each lamp for maximum stealthiness.

Whip It! Come up from behind your fabric just like you would to begin embroidering. Then, pass your needle and thread under and over your stitches, always keeping your needle to the topside of the fabric (like in my photo above, not piercing the fabric). Your stitches will wrap around the worked embroidery like so:

Resting my arms on a hard desk surface for 12 hours every day was murder on my elbow joints. I slowly but surely developed a version of the classic tennis-elbow injury, called “computer elbow” (yes, it’s a real modern ailment). My elbows were tender, sore, burning, and throbbing, even when I was lying in bed or relaxing on the couch. At one point, I was typing with bags of ice strapped to them in a desperate attempt to relieve the pain. After resorting to using travel packs of tissues to cushion my elbows as I typed, I decided to consult the internet and mercifully found these (hilarious) gel pads called Jelbows, made to be placed under your arms while you’re working at your desk.

I could barely see over her shoulder, but I could tell she was turning, tweaking, and straightening. Then she stood back less than three?minutes later and the once bare console table looked amazing. I knew I needed to know more about her dark magic.
