Hand Embroidery Transfer Methods:
If you’re working with a thin fabric, you can transfer your embroidery pattern directly onto the fabric by holding the paper and fabric up to a light source. I recommend using a lightbox or a window. If you’re using the lightbox method, use the lightbox as instructed. If you’re using the window method, tape the paper to the window and hold the fabric up to it (with the fabric already in the hoop). This will allow you to see the pattern through the fabric so you can trace it. I use a sharpened graphite pencil. But, you can also use a fabric pen/pencil or water-soluble transfer pen.
If you’re working with dark fabric and you can’t see through it to trace via the lightbox or window method, this method might be best for you. You can print directly onto the water-soluble stabilizer, then put it on your fabric. After you finish your embroidery, soak the entire thing in warm water and the stabilizer will dissolve. Afterward, let it air dry for 24 hours.
In this method, you’ll use carbon or wax based transfer paper. Use a light-colored carbon paper to transfer onto dark fabrics, and vise versa. Lay the fabric on a hard surface with the top facing up. Lay your transfer paper on top of the fabric, the wax/ink side touching top of the fabric. Then, place the embroidery pattern on top of the transfer paper. So, your layers will be sandwiched as: fabric, transfer paper, pattern. Take an empty pen or toothpick and trace the pattern. Press hard enough so that the pattern appears on the fabric.
This method may be the easiest, in my opinion. Tracing paper is very lightweight and thin, making it easy to see through. Place the tracing paper on top of your pattern and trace it. Place the tracing paper on top of your fabric and stitch the design. Afterward, carefully tear away the paper.
