How do you transfer finished embroidery?
All you really need is a bright window (or light box), your fabric, and the marker. Simply print out your pattern, tape it to the window, tape your fabric over it and trace away! You can stitch over your lines, and when you’re finished, the ink lines will rinse out in cold water – no laundering needed!
Is the easiest way of transferring design onto the fabric?
Carbon transfer paper, also known as Dressmaker’s carbon paper, is another way you can transfer your design to fabric. The advantage of using this method is that it is reuseable and comes in different colours, even white, so it works well on darker fabrics. Using it is easy.
Can you embroider without a hoop?
That is nothing to worry about as you can still embroider without hoops. All you have to do is maintain a decent tension on your fabric to avoid it from getting distorted. Another effective way of doing embroidery without a hoop is by using a scroll fabric. It helps in maintaining fabric tension and is also hands-free.
