Heat Transfer Paper

dba2937October 22, 2005

Has anyone used the heat transfer iron-on paper to apply their patterns for hand embroidery? I want to create my own designs on the computer then print them onto this paper, then iron them on the fabric. Will it work? I find the pens a real pain and they fade as you are working on the project. Plus it is difficult to trace large patterns and keep it neat enough. Has anyone tried this iron-on method? I'm wondering if the ink will wash out. So many unanswered questions! Thanks.

I haven't used the heat transfer paper but I have used regular erasable transfer paper. I think it works well and can be purchased at Joann's. The package comes with several different colors of transfer, the lighter ones for darks, etc. I printed one design layed it over the transfer paper and layed that right on my fabric and traced it. If you don't have to do a lot, this would work. Otherwise tracing each one would be time consuming.
