First, I used the template rulers to draw my pattern on paper.
Next, I used Frixion pens to draw the pattern on my practice fabric. It came out a little different than the paper one, but that's just how it happened.
From here, I attempt to use the templates to "draw on the lines" with thread. It's a damn lot more difficult than I anticipated, partly because of my tendency to be a perfectionist. However, this project is helping me let that go...at least a little. Otherwise I would be ripping out every.single.stitch! I have to constantly remind myself...this is practice.

Once the stitching is completed and I bury all the ends, I'll iron it and Voila, the pink marks
Thank you Paula for loaning me all of the templates I needed and for not needing them back in any kind of timely manner.
Thanks for stopping by...
