You can transfer the sampler design with Margie’s pencil method, or there are disappearing ink pens (like in our Deluxe kit) or iron-on transfer pens that will also do the trick. Or maybe you can try Kristin’s favorite–the tape and trace technique.

Everyone seems to have a different preference… Do you have any tips for your favorite method? Add them in the comments!
