How to Use a Transfer Pen

Using a transfer pen takes a few things, a great pen with a fine tip, tracing paper, heat, and pressure.

This video will help you get reliable results each time you transfer your images. One of my favorite references for anything embroidery related, I check out with Sublime Stitching suggests.

Jenny Hart has the most amazing and fun transfer patterns and supplies!

Transfer Pens –

There are many types of pens; my go to is the Sublime Stitching.  However, the Sulky pens are also an excellent pen to use. Just be very careful with pressing too hard and damaging the pen tip.  The tracing paper I love is Bienfang Tracing and Sketch paper from Amazon; it is what I am using in the video.
