Tips for Handwork
You’ll learn why using Sulky 12 wt. cotton Petites for hand embroidery is a game changer! It’s easy enough to sew that little kid fingers can negotiate the stitching, unlike floss that tangles each time you try to grab a strand. Plus, it’s stored on a snap spool, so the thread end is always contained and never unravels! Bonus!
The Sticky Fabri-Solvy, also known as Stick ‘n Stitch, is printable in your home printer. So it’s never been easier to transfer the cute Beaver design. Simply print on the fabric-like side and place the sticky side of the stabilizer facing your project. Stitch through all layers, and then rinse it under running water to remove! Let dry flat, and then press from the wrong side using a press cloth.
