I am not sure if this is the correct forum to post, but thought I would try here first.  I recently started doing some paper embroidery and having lots of fun with it.  For patterns, I am using an old book of iron on transfers that I had in my stash.  I would love some feedback on how I am doing with this.  Thanks!!





Thanks for looking!

Nice paper embroidery.  Uhh dumb question, did you iron on the transfer onto the paper, and then punch the holes?  Sorry, I just started paper embroidery too, and want to learn as much as possible!!

I used some light tack tape to tape the iron on transfer to my cardstock/paper and then just use it as a pattern to punch the holes with my piercing tool.  I don't iron on the transfers at all.  Just strictly using them as patterns.

Hope that helps! Smiley
