An iron-on transfer pencil for you to copy designs onto your fabric. It's very easy to use. Using a regular sharp pencil, trace out your design onto tracing paper or vellum, turn the paper over and with the iron-on pencil trace over the design. Turn the paper over and place the side with the blue pencil lines onto the fabric and iron the design onto your fabric. Et Voila! Your design is on your fabric ready for embroidery. Can be used about 2-3 times before you need to re-trace the design with the pencil. This is a perfect way to get embroidery designs onto your 'canvas' waiting for your embroidery. One note. We suggest you do a test image on a piece of scrap fabric so you understand how to transfer a design before marking your main fabric. The pencil markings do NOT totally wash out so make certain to completely cover the lines with your embroidery.
