Transferring the embroidery pattern

Each kit comes with two copies of the pattern - an iron on pattern and a pattern to trace.

  • The iron on embroidery pattern makes it easy to transfer the image on to your fabric. Just lay the iron on pattern (labeled “iron me” in the kit) with the image facing your fabric and gently iron the back of the paper with a dry iron. Once the image is transferred, you’re ready to go! Keep your iron-on pattern and re-use it up to 5 times. 
  • The embroidery pattern for tracing (labeled “trace me” in the kit) is easy to use with an embroidery tracing pen, or you can use a pencil. Simply lay your fabric on top of the pattern, and trace the pattern on to your fabric. Save the pattern and re-use it as many times as you would like!
