Making a Template

Last update: March 16, 2010

Materials and Templates - Making a Template
Painting Embroidery - Examples

 

1) Print a photo/drawing to trace embroidery design, or draw your own. Print drawing on card paper to skip steps 2 & 3.

2) Trace design onto tracing paper

3) Place template face down on card paper or posterboard, and hold tightly or tape as you rub template design to transfer it.

4) Cut out design elements with knife. There are fabric transfer pencils that you can iron on to fabric. Such pencils can be used to skip the template cutting.
But then template can only be used once.
