As a new embroiderer, I’ve spent some time trying to get all the the tools necessary, like needles, floss, fabric and transfer pens.
Of course, there’s also the tools that are super nice to have, like a light box. A light box allows you to see the pattern your tracing easily because the light shines from the light box through the pattern.
The one I want is $60. I haven’t even made $60 so it’s not a purchase I can justify. But, there had to be a way to get the same quality of a light box without paying for it, yet.
Lo and behold, there’s an app called Light Box! If you just have a smartphone you can use it to trace smaller patterns onto fabric like the ornaments I’m working on.
I literally placed the pattern on my phone, used the light box app and traced this smaller pattern easily. I have yet to try a larger pattern on my tablet, but I suspect it would work just fine.
I’m still looking for a good stitches dictionary app but have yet to find one. Still looking though!
Anyone use apps for embroidery? Share them in the comments!!
