Dotless Pattern Tracing Fabric


Use this fabric to transfer your custom pattern from paper to rug hooking backing. Sometimes called pattern tracing paper or pattern tracing cloth. This one is extremely thin and you can easily see your design underneath.

36″ wide (same width as the old red dot) but much cheaper!

Product Description

No dots, but this works as well as the new red dot which costs a lot more!

Really want the dots? You can get them here.

This 36″ wide cloth is my current standard for tracing patterns to rug hooking backings. It is dimensionally stable, meaning it does not rack and warp like wedding tulle or other netting. This is the super thin red dot. There is another red dot tracing material out there that is much thicker, making it hard to see your pattern and even harder for the ink to penetrate it to get to your rug hooking backing causing you to have to re-trace all your lines!

The design you see in the photo is drawn on paper and is BENEATH a layer of red dot. First trace what is on the paper pattern with a pen, pencil or Flair marker. If you use a Sharpie at this point, the ink will bleed through and damage your original pattern. Later after you place the red dot over the backing and use a Sharpie Industrial* you will be able to see where you have already traced.

*Industrial Sharpies are rated to stay permanent at higher temperatures. Read the package on a regular Sharpie. They are permanent only at room temperature. Later when you steam your project, the heat could bleed the ink.

*Sharpie Industrials are now called Sharpie PRO

These are the Sharpies you want.

They have a round barrel and red ink on the the barrel.

Do NOT buy this one!
