For your pillows.
Use an iron on vilene that is used for facings in dressmaking. I use it for all my pillowcase decoration.
I stabilize my satin like I do my organza... in vilene liquid goo!. place your scraps in a taller narrow bowl (ice cream carton), add hot water, stir(chop stick) until completely dissolved, remove anything that will not dissolve... add fabric (fat quarter size) remove from bucket and drip dry. It will drip, so I do mine outside and hang on clothes line. Remember vilene is polyester, so you do not want it to go down your pipes. Live Laugh Download Stitch!
wow. I have to try this. xx
Floriani has a website that tells you whta atabiliser of theirs to use with different fabrics. Look Here.
oops... my fingers are going nuts tonight! "what stabilizer" = "whta atabiliser" sorry
I can't help you but I'm interested too. I have embroidered satin fabric without hooping it, hooping two layers of Vilene only and using pins and a bit of UHU glue outside the placement stitches. This method is good for doilies. Hugs, Lidia
I really don't want to pin, because satin will have holes if you pin it, and I am making a pillow for daughters wedding. Thanks for the suggestion. Lets go check out emb library together.
