How to Use Funny Embroidery Patterns

Never used an embroidery pattern before? Or, maybe you simply need a refresher on how to use one correctly. As with most arts and crafts projects, you just need proper supplies, and you’re ready to start creating.

You can use any of the patterns on this list exactly how you use any other embroidery pattern. If you’ve never used a pattern before, or are used to stitching freehand, below are some tips on how to use a pattern.

Tracing the pattern

This is the easiest method for using an embroidery pattern! You’ll need a source of light such as a window or a light box to get started. Place the pattern on the light source, and then cover the pattern with a piece of fabric. You should be able to see the lines. Trace them with a pencil!

You can also use tracing paper. You’ll need some lightweight tracing paper for this technique. Pin the tracing paper onto the piece of fabric you plan to use. You can stitch the design directly on the paper. When you’re done, gently remove the tracing paper and admire your craftsmanship!

Using heat to transfer the pattern

You’ll need a special heat transfer pen for this method. Using the pen, trace the pattern on a piece of paper. To transfer your design onto the fabric, place the marked up paper on top of it and press with an iron. The heat will make the tracing stick to the fabric. Be aware that the markings are permanent, so if you’re working from a delicate pattern you may want to use the tracing method.

Another way to use your iron is to use a hot iron transfer pattern. Simply iron the pattern onto your fabric and start stitching!
