Fabri-Solvy and Transfer-Eze

Good morning,

Bird Brain Designs had an interesting post yesterday over using Fabri-Solvy and Transfer-Eze to "transfer" your embroidery designs to your fabric.  I'm curious about this as I normally use a light box (but I have a harder time transferring designs on darker fabrics).

Since this is a stitching group, have any of you used these products?

Happy Spring!

p.s. I hope there's no problems posting these types of questions to this blog - thought it might be relevant and interesting.

Hi Elisa!

I have never tried anything like this. I read the post you mentioned and these products sound magical. Does anyone know where you can get these products from? I wouldn't mind giving them a go. (I'm not very good at the whole tracing thing!

I agree, I'm ok on tracing small designs but I avoid larger ones and don't even go near darker fabrics, would be interesting to try them out.

I read the post and this sounds like something I would enjoy using...bending over the light box gives me such a neck ache...I try to only trace one or two at a go....and my lines are never straight..I usually use a ruler to do the straight lines in the design...I would like to know where to buy these.
