Trying Transfer-Eze

Trying this item called Transfer-Eze it suppose to help with your embroidering, make it easier.  You transfer the pattern onto the transfer-eze, you can use your printer and print the pattern right on it and then place on your fabric to be embroider. Well, as it stands now, I am not that impressed with it.  It really makes your fabric stiff and hard to handle, I do have a backing interfacing on, I like that cause it hides the threads.  When I am done, I am to cut away as much as I can and run the rest under water to remove the transfer-eze, I will let you know how that goes, hope this works, because this piece is for an anniversary, coming up soon.  Peace and stitches,
RoseMary

I have used it several times and really like it. If you fabric is a little stiff, you need to run it under the water more. I use it specifically for wool applique because it's hard to transfer stitching lines. Good Luck!
Cheers

Beth,
Thank You for the info on the wool applique. Hope you come back and see how it turns out. Maybe a little while since I work slow. Have no way of getting in touch with you.
Happy stitching,
RoseMary

Hi, just found your blog! I had just heard about transfer eze last week and wondered if it was good. I make a lot of hand embroidered linens and I don't want them to be stiff. Let us know more as you progress with this. Loved visiting here! blessings, Kathleen

Thank You Kathleen for your post.
The only thing I am finding at this point is it makes the fabric stiffer to work with. I use a thin interfacing on the back to hide my stitches, which I like.
I don't use a hoop, so I just hold everything in my hands. I will post when I am done with it. I am slow, so please bear with me.
