Great question and answers....I wonder was the sticky back easy to peel off the neoprene????
Hi it came off just fine. The kind I used was like paper and was no problem, Carol
Wine bottle koozies are available at Sewphisticatedstitcher.com. They make super gifts but I found out the shape will only fit a chardonnay type bottle which is wider at the bottom and narrows at the top sooner, in contrast to a cabernet bottle that is narrower but does not narrow closer to the top. Wow what a description from a non-wine drinker. these koozies have a zipper in the back and fit very snuggly. Koozies are fun to embroider and everyone loves them as gifts. Give them a try, Carol
thanks for the visual
No I haven't but would like to. Where is the best place to purchase these?
I hope carolym rechecks this post! So glad you asked the question, this looks like a fun gift to make for Christmas
interesting facts on this thank you *4 u all
Hi I hooped peel & stick type stabilizer and trimmed inside the hoop and put the neoprene on the sticky side. Everything went really well without any changes to thread or needle or tension. It was fun embroidering can koozies and zippered wine bottle koozies with funny designs. I loved them so have fun, Carol
How on earth did you hoop these? I sure would love to see a picture of a hooped one.
pssst...me too! I can't imagine how you could keep the back of the koozie out of the way on a typical flat style hoop...the only way I can invision doing this is with a cylindrical hoop. I'm stumped, I need VISUALS please!!! LOL, ~Rita
Oooh Carolvm...I love your work and design selections. A+++. ~Rita
Sorry I don't have any more blanks or I would take a picture for you. It's really easy- just hoop the peel & stick stabilizer. Then cut a slit in the paper that covers the sticky back and pull the covering off.That leaves a whole surface of stickyness and you just put the koozie where you want it and press it down gently and you are ready to go. It's really fun and easy since the koozies are a flat piece that is sewn up the 2 sides after embroidery is done. Try it. Koozies cost about $1.00 to $1.25. They make great personalized gifts. Purchase them at koozielady.com, sewphisticatedstitcher.com, embroiderthis.com or google " blank koozies." Have fun, Carol
ah hah now I understand, I just could not imagine how you hooped a round koozie but I didn't think that they were sewn up each side after you embroidered on them! No picture needed now hahaha
thanks carolyn for the pics...i have to see things first...much easier for me...i ordered some blanks koozies ...cant wait till they come in....
Sounds great. All the people who received them from me as gifts just loved them. Great as stocking stuffers too for Christmas. Enjoy them and good luck, Carol
Oops silly me for got that tearaway stabilizer can be used with spray adhesive to hold the koozie. It should be a tearaway that leaves very little fuzz behind so that the inside looks nice and clean. Thanks, Carol
Put it on some sticky stabilizer and stitch away! Not sure if you are talking about one that velcros down the back, but if it is a cylinderical shape, you stick the inside down to the stabilizer at the place where you want the embroidery to be. I didn't use any additional stabilizer or special needle or anything.;)
