This is a sample of one of the 5 Transparent Embroidery Stitch Templates. Each sheet measures 9 1/2" x 7". The printing on the templates is purple, making it easier to see on black and dark colors. While these templates can be used ‘as is’- -our recommendation is to cut them apart into individual seam/motif templates, which will take approximately 5 minutes. Dashed lines are included between the individual templates, so you can easily see where to cut them apart and a pair of utility scissors or a rotary cutter & mat is all you need. If you are using a rotary cutter to cut the templates apart- -scoring them and then folding/snapping them apart typically works great. When cut apart, these templates are compact and easily stored, each individual template also has a single, slightly larger hole punched out near the end, so that the entire set can be easily organized by placing on a key/binder ring or tied together with cording/ribbon, etc.
