If you are decorating items just related thin dense jackets, pin it to the pattern. Identify a place for drawing and pin or baste tracing. Bobbin threads sew a contrasting color outline of the picture. This should be done with small stitches. Carefully remove the tracing paper. If the figure is small, it is necessary to immediately mark the place of small details. For example, it is possible to make crosses, where will be located midway colors or animal eyes.
