How to transfer an embroidery pattern tissue paper
You can use this method for any embroidery pattern. Trace the pattern to tissue paper. Layer the tissue paper with your design face up on top of the right side of your fabric. You can place them in the same hoop so that the design doesn’t shift. Embroider your pattern. When complete, carefully tear the tissue paper away from the stitching!
This is a perfect method for fabrics that are difficult to mark.
