I've noticed that when I stitchout a design that my fabric shrinks the WOF but not length. Not a lot, but enough to throw a frame off. I do use a basting stitch, but does not help. I've tried different kinds of stabilizers but so far none fixes the prob
I'm making my first tote...and I swear this project is jinxed. The worst thing I did was grab my rotary cutter instead of the marking pen. Anyhow, I want to put somethink in the bottom of the tote to make it firm. I was thinking cardboard, but that'll g
I'm looking for suggestion as to what fsl can be used for. I have a ton of them that I haven't stitched out, but when I give them to people my suggestions are limited...bookmarks, insert in a card, stitch on clothing...I was thinking about gluing onto a
