What is the easiest and the best way to transfer embroidery
patterns to your fabric?


Here are four ways I know of :

1. Scan and print it to a piece of Iron-on T- shirt Transfer paper. Following the directions on the Transfer paper. Using a hot steam iron transfer the design to the fabric and peel the backing off being careful to not pull the design off it – A Note of Caution : Do this with only Cotton or Linen Cloth – (Do not use rayon or synthetics they will burn or melt ; if you try this method with them)

2) Scan and print a copy of it on a sheet of paper secure it on the fabric with quilting or dress pins as long as it there are not on the pattern lines Than start cross stitching from the center of the pattern working you way out toward the outside of the drawing pattern when your done cross stitching Than wash the pattern to remove the paper- this is the easy way I know how to do this without doing # 1. above.

3. Draw a grid on both the pattern and the fabric – make sure the grids are identical except that they are proportionally larger or smaller depending on the design. Then draw your picture on the fabric until it look like what on the pattern grid only the fabric drawing of it will be proportionally larger or smaller

4. Do a free hand the drawing on the fabric if your design is simple or use tracing paper to trace out the key design elements Number it – put some marks or lines so you can originate your pattern pieces with one other. Secure it on the fabric with quilting or dress pins. Do your cross stitching over it .Or you can transfer your drawing from the patterns on the tracing paper with a fabric pen or pencil. (Be careful with fabric marker pens – you can not ease them as easily as you can pencil marks). putting your orgination marks on so you can match the other pattern pieces with it and draw them in as well – remove your pattern pieces when your done drawing it. Do your cross stitching on it. and your done

Hope this helps

i am new to this whole embroidery machine thing so i dont know anything yet. i am looking to buy a machine so i can add designs to my own creations that i started for my kids. i want to monogram but also do those cute little designs for cheering, fairies and trucks and cars, things like applique. im not doing quilting and i already have a serger and a sewing machine. so this would be all it is used for. will make several items but dont want to buy a $1000 machine until i get into making my money back.

can you give me a run down on what i need to look for.
i dont like the cards that you have to buy for certain designs. i would like to find clip art or free designs online and send them to my machine through usb port or something. also handmade designs maybe that i can design myself. is there accessories i would add to do all these things or would a certain machine have it all.

also what about the thread. i would like it to have multicolor on one design but i think only the large industrial machines do that.

In order to get a machine that will transfers via an USB port, and create your own designs or even use clip art you will end up spending $1,000 or more.

The Brother PE II has the USB option. http://www.allbrands.com/products/abp15438-0068.html

To create your own designs is another heap of money.

You cannot just download clip art and sent it to the machine. It has to be digitized in a machine embroidery format.

To do this you have to purchase digitizing software. This can cost $300 and up.

Forget the cards, they are practically obsolete – almost every designer has the option to download directly from their site.

Embird is a popular software that many people use for digitizing. http://www.secretsof.com/content/1869

You start with Basic Embird, and then add plug-ins (digitizing it one) as you learn and want to expand your talents.

You can do just as well with the $500 dollar Brother at Walmart or Costco and use an reader/writer unit and rewritable memory card, which you can get for just over $100. http://www.allbrands.com/products/abp01060-0165.html With Embird, that is still around $1,000.

There are many free embroidery designs you can download from machine embroidery sites without digitizing your own. You would still need the USB or a reader/writer and card.

Thread – There are stops already in most designs and this is where you change colors – you can use any color you want.

Editing software (Embird Basic) can be used to add stops where you want them for color changes.

About the only thing the industrial or professional models can do is work faster, using multi needles and multi spools of thread – the design colors stitch out the same on the home version or or pro version.
