Embroidering a lot during the lockdown? There has never been
a better time to buy stabilizers
and adhesives. It is something you will use and has a good shelf life. Plus, Ann
the Gran is offering free U.S. delivery until May 6.
Here are some of the more unique items that also qualify for free
U.S. delivery, and how you use them.
Print and Stick
Print your design template on this magic paper
and place it on the item you are embroidering, right where you want the embroidery
to be. It has a sticky back to hold it in place. Line up the needle to the
center point and stitch. Perfect placement. That is especially helpful when
embroidering multiple designs on an item.
505 Temporary Spray
is my go-to spray adhesive. It holds well, especially with applique
and keeping batting in place when stitching in-the-hoop projects that involve
batting and other items on both the front and back of the hoop.
Often, making an embroidery patch is much easier than
embroidering directly on some items, like totes, jackets, or shoes. Fuse-n-bond
Patch Backing makes it easy to adhere the patch to an alternate surface.
applique is one of my favorite embroidery techniques and Stitch-n-Heat
Film from AllStitch is my absolute favorite stabilizer to use. This film
works like water-soluble in the fact that satin-stitched edges stitch cleanly.
Instead of rinsing water-soluble stabilizer away and letting the piece dry,
Stitch-n-heat tears cleanly away. You can also use an iron to remove it when
using it as a topper.
sheet is often overlooked as an essential item in your sewing and embroidery
room. They work really well at keeping adhesives from stitching to your fabric,
iron, and ironing surfaces. Whether you are fusing
vinyl, ironing adhesive stabilizer to the back of your fabric, or layering
applique fusable pieces, your ironing board will thank you for using this
Teflon fusing sheet.
