embroidery transfer sheets pics

rosajoe_gwMarch 3, 2012

I bought these about 6 years ago in a thrift shop in Orlando, Fl. I have never seen transfer sheets like this and really wasn't sure that's what they were, but they were so cheap I bought them (5 sheets). They are as thick as craft felt and I tested a small piece, it gives a nice clear print and the transfer could be used several times. Has anyone seen tranfers like this? All of mine have been like tissue paper.

Rosa, I've only seen the paper type, too. Is there a copyright or something on one edge? It's nice that they transfer well!

Donna, this has me so preplexed! They were in a large clear bag with no markings on them (like fabric will have in the selvedge)at all.

I have asked some people from European countries and no one recognizes them.

They actually transfer darker than the paper and are thick enough that they don't shift.

I have never seen them, but sounds like a great idea to me. Nice they can be used more than once, too.

I've never seen anything like that either. Are you sure they aren't the actual piece to be embroidered for a wall hanging? The pattern would iron transfer off them, too. Maybe you were supposed to stitch them. I've seen patterns on felt to be embroidered.

Linda you may have solved it! But they are vertical panels, I would think a hanging would be horizontal. I have searched old embroidery books too, they really have me puzzled.
Any way I think you are right!

Should they be cut apart on the lines to make four panels??

That is a great find! And the fact that you can use them more than once is very cool!!
