Visit the Embroidery Tips web page for description and photos of the prick and pounce method of design transfer and you can read the explanation below..

Information about prick and pounce method of design transfer: The prick and pounce method of transferring a design onto fabric can be used for surface embroidery such for Applique, Brazilian, Free Embroidery, Goldwork, Needle Painting, Modern Jacobean, Surface Embroidery, Stumpwork, Traditional Jacobean and White Work. It can be used for any technique where the design lines will be covered.

A desired design to be worked is placed underneath a piece of vellum tracing paper and all the lines of the design are traced onto the tracing paper. A size 10 or size 9 crewel embroidery needle is screwed into a pricking tool and then holes are pricked along all the design lines on the tracing paper puncturing the design lines at 1/8th of and inch (3 mm) intervals.  The tracing paper can held up to the light to check that all the lines have been pricked.

The pricked tracing paper is placed on to fabric (smooth side up) and can be held in place with weights on the corners of the tracing paper or by pinning the tracing paper to the fabric or if it is a small tracing then held in place with one hand whilst you rub the pounce on with the other hand.

The pattern pounce which has a piece of felt on the end of the wooden tool is dipped into the container of pounce and then rubbed over the entire tracing paper in a circular fashion taking care not to rub the pounce over the edge of the tracing. The tracing paper is carefully lifted away leaving a pounce outline of the design on the fabric. There is a choice of a two ended tool, one end has 3/4 inch piece of felt, the other end has 1 inch piece of felt or a one ended tool with 1 3/4 inch piece of felt.

Excess pounce is blown away, then the pounce lines are drawn over with a lead pencil or white pencil depending on the colour of the fabric or painted over with permanent paint i.e. acrylics or oils. Any excess pounce is removed by holding the fabric so that it hangs down and slapping the back of the fabric with your hand.

The prick and pounce method is the most accurate method of transferring a design onto a piece of fabric for embroidery as you can transfer intricate and fine lines, in comparison to a light box where the fabric can shift distorting the design or using transfer paper which can smudge on the fabric.

Embroidery or crewel needles have a long eye for easier threading, a slender shaft and a sharp point to the needle so that the stitches can be worked close together and there is more control for the placement of the stitches.

The needles can be used for surface embroidery and sewing.

Crewel/embroidery needles are not suitable for counted thread work as the point of the needle would easily catch the threads of the fabric, distorting the counted work.

Size 10 are my choice needles for fine surface embroidery in which only one single strand of silk thread or embroidery cotton is used.

For very fine embroidery. when only using a single strand of fine thread or for sewing down No. 8, No. 9 and No. 10 gold purl threads use size 12 crewel embroidery.
