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.

Curved needles are great for awkward stitch angles, where a straight needle just won’t do. I carry curved beading needles for fine fabrics and beading. Curved quilting needles for sewing together heavier fabrics and is great for ending threads at the back of the work such as in goldwork and curved tapestry needles for sewing together counted fabrics and also for ending threads at the back of the work.

A mellor also known as a mellore or melor is a perfectly manufactured tool for metal thread embroidery.

The mellor is made out a soft smooth metal that is not abrasive.

The narrower end is used as a stiletto to widen a hole in the ground fabric to plunge a heavy twisted cord or metal thread to the back.

The round end is used to nudge and push metal threads into position and is gentler on the metal threads than using tweezers as the mellor has been polished and has smooth rounded edges so less likely to damage the metal thread.

The turtle retractable scissors holder has a plastic loop that goes around one of the handles of the scissors and closes via a popper.

The back of the spool which holds the retractable line there is an alligator clip which can be clipped to your clothing.

This very handy tool enables you to have your scissors on you at all times. The line retracts to 21 inches and slides back into the spool when you are not using the scissors.
