How to Transfer Embroidery Patterns

Pre-printed embroidery samplers, like the ones offered by Dropcloth Samplers or Tamar Nahir-Yanai, are a great way to start stitching immediately. But, learning how to transfer an embroidery design on to any fabric is an important step on your embroidery journey. 

Whether the pattern you would like to stitch up is available only as a PDF download, like this Frida pattern by Carolina Pinochet.
