Make a quilt label, embroider a name or stitch out a favorite phrase using easy hand embroidery stitches. Here is a tutorial to show you how to transfer your text to fabric using tissue paper, then stitch your message.
Do you have a dark or thick fabric that will not work with a light box for tracing? Or a fabric that must stay dry? Then these transfer tips that leave no marks behind on your fabric will help! You can use stranded embroidery floss or perle cotton and choose from a variety of linear stitches to get the look you want. I chose chain stitch for this project: felt Christmas stockings.
Can I use tissue paper as transfer paper for embroidery?
Yes! I’ve shown you how to use the tissue paper as transfer paper for letters, but it also works well with other line designs.
