Q. 3. Describe any two of transferring a design from paper onto a fabric.

Ans: Before you start the process of transferring designs, you will need some basic equipment. They are carbon and tracing wheel, tracing paper (ordinary paper can be used), dressmaker’s chalk, marking pencils and pencils.

Transfer your design using Hand Pricking (Pouncing) Method

• Lay the pattern on a cork board.

• With a sharp pin, prick along the design of the pattern. (Tip: Keep holes close together.)

• Put the pricked design on the fabric right side up.

• With a felt pad, gently rub the dressmaker’s chalk over the pricked design.

• Remove the pattern carefully and gently blow off the excess chalk.

• If you desire, you can use a dressmaker’s pencil to connect the dots.

2. Transfer using Dressmaker’s Carbon

• Position the on fabric with the pattern facing you.

• Pin each corner so that pattern stays in place.

• Slip dressmaker’s carbon paper with carbon side down between the pattern and fabric.

• Using the tracing wheel of your choice, copy the design lines of the pattern.

Q. 4. You have selected a design of a butterfly to be used on a bedcover and pillow cover. Explain the method by which the same motif can be used on both the articles. Show it using a graph paper.

Ans: Enlarging:

Step-1: Reverse the math if you are enlarging a pattern.

Step-2: Draw your second grid, making the squares as many times larger as the amount by which you wish to enlarge the pattern. For example, if the grid over the original pattern consists of 1/8-inch squares and you are doubling the pattern size, squares in the second grid will be 1/4 inch.

Reducing

Step-1: Trace the pattern.

Step-2: Draw a grid (like graph paper) to mark small squares across the pattern.

Step-3: Draw a second grid, making the squares as many times smaller as the amount by which you wish to reduce the pattern. For example, if the grid over the original pattern consists of 1/4- inch squares and you are halving the pattern size, squares in the second grid will be 1/8 inch.

Step-4: Square by square, copy the pattern. by drawing it on the new grid.

Pillow Cases: The embroidery should be centered between the edge of the open end and the stitching on the hem or the border pattern.

Sheets: The bottom of the embroidery should be centered about 2″ above the wide hem line on the top side of the sheet.
