Yet, regardless of whether you have a technique that you incline toward over the others, it’s a smart thought to be acquainted with the entirety of the alternatives. The best decision of strategy can likewise regularly rely upon the weight or shade of texture being utilized.

Attempt the same number of these exchange strategies as you can and keep supplies available so when you have to utilize a specific system, you’re prepared.


In the event that your texture is genuinely slight, you can move the structures straightforwardly onto the texture utilizing a light source, for example, a light box or window, denoting the lines with a chalk-based checking pencil or water-dissolvable exchange pen or pencil. After all other options have been exhausted, a finely honed standard pencil will likewise work.

To move a plan utilizing a light source, for example, a window, tape the example to the glass and spread the example with the texture. You ought to have the option to see the structure unmistakably through the texture and follow the lines with your checking pencil or pen.

Warmth Transfer Pens and Pencils

Warmth move pencils or pens are additionally a possibility for denoting a weaving plan on texture and will take a shot at both light-and heavier-weight textures.

Move pencils and pens are accessible in various hues and thicknesses, and the ink is actuated by the warmth of an iron.

Be that as it may, these markings are changeless. The example lines won’t clean out, and the checked lines must be totally secured with weaving so they are not noticeable. Utilize a fine-tipped exchange pen for the best outcomes.

To utilize a warmth move pen or pencil, follow the structure backward on a lightweight piece of paper (the plan is followed backward on the grounds that the squeezing procedure makes a perfect representation of the plan set apart on the paper). The most straightforward and speediest approach to do this is to print your example, turn it over, and afterward follow the plan on the rear of the paper utilizing the warmth move pencil.

In case you’re utilizing a pencil, be certain that it’s exceptionally sharp while following. The example lines moved to the texture ought to be as dainty as could be expected under the circumstances with the goal that they don’t look out from under your wonderful weaving.

Subsequent to sewing through the texture and stabilizer, absorb the weaving warm water and the stabilizer disintegrates away.

Since this strategy requires drenching, you should ensure that your texture can be washed and that your weaving floss is colorfast.

Move Paper

Plans can likewise be moved to thick or dull textures utilizing carbon-or wax-based exchange paper regularly alluded to as dressmakers’ carbon paper. This lightweight exchange paper is covered on one side with a fine, shaded ink that is made explicitly for use on textures and will clean out of the completed piece.

Utilize a light-shaded bit of carbon paper to check plans on darker textures and a darker shading on lighter textures. Continuously utilize the lightest shading conceivable, just in the event that the ink is somewhat difficult when cleaning it out. This strategy additionally works incredible when weaving on wood.

To move a plan utilizing move paper, lay the texture face-up on a hard surface, for example, a kitchen counter. Focus the exchange paper over the texture having the waxy ink toward the texture, and spot the example over the exchange paper. Move the plan to the texture utilizing a stylus or void ball-point checking pen. Make certain to press hard enough with the stylus to move the plan to the texture through the layers of paper.

Following Paper

To utilize this method, follow your example onto lightweight following paper. Treat the paper onto your texture and afterward line through the paper and texture. At the point when you’re done, cautiously tear away the following paper.

Hot Iron Transfers

Hot iron exchanges are designs that come prepared to-utilize and highlight a wide scope of subjects. They are ordinarily imprinted in dark, blue, or dim ink. Move these structures to the texture utilizing a hot iron in a similar way as move pens and pencils.


Prior to the appearance of move paper and iron-on inks, jumping was a typical method to move weaving structures to texture.

Utilizing this strategy, a paper design is pricked with a pin at normal interims. The example is then verified to the texture and a powdered shade is worked through the gaps in a jumping movement utilizing a delicate texture cushion. Jumping supplies can in any case be found in strength embroidery shops.
