Help with TP Zelda Dress Designs???

So, right now I'm working on TP Zelda and I know exactly how to do the designs on the bottom of Zelda's dress, but I'm at a loss as to how to make all 8 of them identical. I've never done a project that required several identical designs, so I honestly have no clue.

I'm going to embroider the designs onto tear-away stabilizer, then create appliques using heat n bond. Is it a good idea to put an enlarged image of the design sandwiched between two pieces of stabilizer? Or should I do something else?

Thanks so much!

Edit: here's an image of the design:

Hello, my girlfriend cosplayed as Zelda for SDCC and what she did was draw out the drawing on a piece of paper then used a fabric paint marker (can be bought at any arts and crafts stores and walmart) to trace the paper then colored it in accordingly, the only caveat is that when tracing it, the design is slightly larger than the paper so you'll have to design the pattern a wee bit smaller. Hope this helps.

I think the appliques on stabilizer would be the best way to go. How thick is it? If possible, I'd trace a printout of the image onto the stabilizer itself, then just embroider as usual. I do my tracing on a glass coffee table with a flashlight pointing upward.
