Embroidery design from Das Neue Modelbuch
Pressmark 95.O. Box 1
This embroidery design was to be transferred by pouncing.
Pouncing was a technique which involved pricking out the outline of the pattern with a pin, attaching the page to a piece of fabric, then rubbing soot or charcoal through the pin holes so that when the page was removed, the pigment would be left in place.
