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.

The wooden Koma is a square-ended wooden spool used to maintain tension with Japanese/Japan threads.

The Japan thread is wound onto the spool. If the embroidery is to be worked by sewing down two strands of Japan thread down at the same time then the Japan thread can be wrapped onto the spool double or two separate spools can be used with a single strand of Japan thread on each spool as it is easier to keep the two strands at an even tension as it is sewn down.

Size: 2 1/2 inches (6 1/2 cm) long by 1 1/4 inches (3 1/4 cm) wide

Chenille Needles have a large eye and a sharp point and are great for ribbon embroidery and as a plunging needle for goldwork embroidery. Chenille needles can also be used for heavy surface embroidery such as crewel and Mountmellick. I carry a variety packet in which the needles range from size 18 (largest) to size 24 (smallest) and I sell the No. 18 chenille needle separately for goldwork embroidery.

Wire needle threaders are for all sizes of needles but are most useful for fine needles as it enables you to thread the really small eyed needles easier.
The metal wire loop of the needle threader is threaded into the eye of the needle (much easier than threading in a strand of thread), the thread is then threaded into the wire loop of the threader and then the wire loop and embroidery thread are pulled back through the eye of the needle, the thread is now threaded into the needle.
