You can use a light box (diy – lamp under a glass coffee table) or tape the image to a window, place the fabric on top and trace with a pencil or micro pen with disappearing ink. You can also use a special pen or pencil and trace the lines on the paper thereby turning it into a hot iron transfer much like the original pattern. Just be sure and reverse the image beforehand especially if it contains words. The transfer pens/pencils can be purchased through the Colonial Patterns site or any JoAnn store. Michaels and Hobby Lobby should have them as well. May 10, 2016 Louise Fontenot How do you transfer to cloth I am new at embrodery love the butterflie patterns May 8, 2016 TimFea That is a great idea. Thank you! December 15, 2015 cherie I’ve read reports of crayola washable markers being used for marking quilts and the ink washing out OK. My own tests bear this out even with cheap dollar store washable markers. As for setting up a mass production transfer, maybe having a custom rubber stamp made might be the fastest and still be economical. A quick search turned up washable stamp pads at Staples and there are plenty of custom stamp makers online. http://www.staples.com/Center-Enterprises-Washable-Stamp-Pads/product_SS2050390 Good luck with your project! December 10, 2015 TimFea I am stitching white on white on 200 hankies. Does anyone have ideas for quickly transferring the design to each hankie? Also, I need the finished product to look completely white, so the transfer will need to be able to be washed/ironed/etc. out. Or maybe a pale gray transfer would be light enough to be covered by the white thread? Thank you for any suggestions! December 9, 2015 cherie All the patterns are free. Simply save to your computer and print to the desired size. Trace directly onto fabric or trace the lines on the paper with a transfer pen that will give you a hot iron transfer. If you use the transfer pen be sure and reverse the image first so it will “stamp” correctly. April 21, 2015 Fran Thanks so much for sharing these precious pieces of art and skill. Pls send more info on how to request. Thank you!, April 14, 2015 Margaret Thank you, just what I was looking for, now to transfer to cushion cover ready to embroider. July 29, 2014 Margaret love these butterflies, something so nice about the vintage designs, maybe I feel at home with them being of a vintage era myself November 17, 2013 Jackie I’ll add those French knots -you can’t have too fancy a butterfly. June 5, 2013 crazypatch Thankx for lovelies butterflies May 17, 2013 Christine So sweet! I have a few table runners with butterflies like this embroidered by my grandma! She just passed away last month at the age of 102 but stopped stitching many years ago! I’m going to try to continue her legacy by stitching the vintage designs she loved so much. Problem is she never taught me how to embroider ( I never wanted to learn) but she did teach me to crochet! She left a set of tea towels ( colonial girls days of the week) that I’m going to try and complete…she ironed on the transfers and stitched all but the last one. March 1, 2013 Annette thanks so much – these may end up as part of a project I’m working on February 22, 2013 Megan Zimmer Thank you so much! These will also make great paint by numbers for my children! November 1, 2012 cherie You’re very welcome! Fortunately, butterflies were quite popular among designers of that era.
