Pls test with iron before using in clothing. My experience gave me stiff scratchy feel on backside. I loved mine for stabilizer when making stuffed animals, for sure...and a few other uses__ but I used to emb on back of shirt & it scratched like crazy!
I came across your post just now online. I just looked at a white and a black roll of this stuff at a store called Rural King---kind of a catch all store in the country for animals, country wear, kind of a hardware, tool store etc. I just mentioned this to my husband about looking like mesh cutaway stabilizer. I think next time I am there I will buy a roll since it is inexpensive and try it---what will it hurt. Maybe wash it first and make sure any chemical might be out of it but I am sure there are chemicals in the ones we buy for embroidery anyways. Just want to make sure really that it doesn't shrink up. Glad I found your post even though it is years old.
I buy queen or king bedskirts at the textile outlet for under $4, cut away the beautiful fabric for another project and then use the part that covers the mattress for stabilizer. Again, cheap.
I will check this out - great pics, I know exectly what you are talking bout - and use this as cutaway! christine LLDS!
Is that the stuff that you put down to keep the weeds down? I have a roll of it and didn't know what to do with it. The deer and raccoons just pull it up here so I'm not going to waste my time in putting any more down. I'll have to give that a try. How does it wash? I'm curious now. I've used the used-up dryer sheets as a stabilizer, and it works great for small projects. I get the unscented kind or would be overwhelmed with the smell.
You can use new unsecented dryer sheets as stabilizer? I never would have known! Thanks christine LLDS!
Yes it is to keep the weeds down, I HAVE SOAKED IT IN HOT WATER TO SEE IF IT FADED AND IT DIDN'T. it is soft and is a cut away.
Never heard if ut before. We have a dollar geneeral store here so I'll be sure to check that out What a great price. thanks for the heads up.
I think this is what gardeners in the UK call "fleece". They use it to pretect seedlings against the frost.
Where we live it is used to keep weeds down in the spring.
mine was wrapped with green label
sorry the pictures didn't up load
