About Iron-On Transfers and PDFs


Iron-On Transfers

Sublime Stitching iron-on transfers make embroidering easy. Just transfer the design to fabric with a hot iron, and stitch along the lines! The pattern will print again and again (really). You can expect approximately 8 imprints from each design. It all depends on how hot your iron is, and how long and hard you press when transferring the pattern. You can make multiple projects from one pattern, repeat a motif, and really get creative through mixing and matching the patterns.

Every pack includes:

  • One 8 1/2" x 11" sheet of multi-imprinting designs
  • Complete transfer instructions
  • Hand embroidery how-to for a beginner!

These patterns can also be imprinted onto wood and card stock for other crafts! Every pack comes with complete instructions for use and an introductory stitch lesson. 

BIG SHEET iron-on transfers measure 11" x 17" and feature larger designs. (We introduced this larger format in 2014, and you can read about them in more detail in this blog post.) Big Sheet packs include all the instructions needed for how to transfer the patterns, how to get started in embroidery PLUS COLOR examples and extra tips and ideas!


PDF w / Color Guides

Get the patterns instantly as a multi-page file you print out at home and trace with carbon transfer paper or a transfer pen. All Sublime Stitching patterns are also available as a PDF (and there are extra PDF designs here not available as transfers). Sublime Stitching PDFs include reversed and "right way" versions of the patterns, plus two versions of the entire sheet with COLOR suggestions.
Every PDF includes:

  • Instructions for transferring the designs
  • Reversed view of patterns (for use with a transfer pen)
  • "Right way" view of patterns (for tracing with carbon transfer paper)
  • Two COLOR examples of the patterns
  • Three embroidery stitch diagrams

You will need carbon transfer paper or a transfer pen to transfer the pattern to fabric (shown above and available here).

Please Note: Due to size limitations of most at-home standard printers, PDF versions of the patterns are slightly smaller than the iron-on transfer version and are formatted to fit an 8 1/2" x 11" sheet.

Iron-On Transfer + PDF COMBO!
