Sample text

If the results are too faint, apply more pressure; if too heavy, less pressure. Too heavy a line is difficult to hide with embroidery and too light a line is hard to see, but keep in mind that the transfer does have a tendency to fade a bit as it is handled and so should be a little on the heavy side. After adjusting the impression, trace the entire design and then remove the carbon and all but two pins. Carefully lift one side of the tracing paper and check to make sure the design is intact on the fabric before removing the pattern.

Series. 44’ 86-6374 9780486137773 INTRODUCTION Although this collection of fine turn-of-the-century designs has been edited and published especially for the needleworker who is looking for something more artistically valid than what is customarily available, it is full of designs that will appeal to a host of other craftspeople as well.

Dressmaker’s carbon, available at notions, fabric and dime stores, comes in packs of assorted colors in strips about 7 × 20 inches. It has a hard waxy finish and is designed for our purpose. Do not pin the carbon in place. With a hard, even pressure, trace a few lines with a tracing wheel or similar tool. Raise one corner of the tracing and the carbon to check the impression. If the results are too faint, apply more pressure; if too heavy, less pressure. Too heavy a line is difficult to hide with embroidery and too light a line is hard to see, but keep in mind that the transfer does have a tendency to fade a bit as it is handled and so should be a little on the heavy side.
