This is a beautiful soft stabiliser for behind your embroideries...it has a lovely luxurious feel to it... and helps 'hold' the warp & weft together (each in their 'correct' position - ...so you don't get any distortion or 'stretch' in your fabrics when embroidering on them).
This Weaveline has a lovely soft feel to it , and makes your Linen etc lovely to hold when doing your embroideries... it is sooo good to work with and is NOT stiff at all.
***This is my favourite stabiliser to use behind all of our embroideries*** I love it, and use it all the time.
It irons onto the back of your fabric that you are going to do your embroidery on.
$15 PER METRE (SOLD IN DIFFERENT SIZED QUANTITIES- simply select what quantity you'd like from the drop down menu).
I truly love this product and use it behind all of my own embroideries too!! 💖
Directions for using...
How to Iron your WEAVELINE STABILISER onto the back of your fabric-
1. Iron your FABRIC first so that it has no creases in it at all. ( The Fabric gets ironed, NOT the stabiliser!!)
2. Trace your chosen embroidery design onto the front of your embroidery fabric ...
3. Cut your weavelive so it is approx 1/4" less (All the way around) than what your top embroidery fabric is... that way when you iron the weavelive on the back of your FABRIC, it will "centre" and will have a 1/4" clearance all the way around it.
**Iron the FRONT OF YOUR FABRIC (with the stabiliser now being directly behind it- (with the WRONG SIDES of the fabric & the wrong side, the 'sticky' side of the stabiliser facing TOGETHER). Wrong sides together!!!
Then, with the FRONT of your embroidery design facing up... Iron the front of your FABRIC with high steam ...
make sure there are no bits of stabiliser sticking out from the edge of your fabric or you will have a sticky residue ... melted on your iron OR on your fabric (definitely something to avoid !!😂)
*Use your iron on high steam (so it melts the little gluey/grainy bits... thus adhering to THE BACK of your chosen fabric).
*Becareful not to get it wrong or you'll have sticky black glue all over your iron... and probably on your beautiful project too!! (I sell quality Applique Mats that help stop this from happening too.)
Team your beautiful weavelive stabiliser with one of our gorgeous packs of quality Linen or Cotton backgrounds for your embroideries.
*MY preferred method of 'tracing' the designs is with a Pigma Pen... (uni pin) these can be found on my site too... and are highly recommended.
If you have any questions at all, don't hesitate to ask.
HAPPY STITCHING to you ♡
