This pattern comes printed on two sheets of self-stick, water-soluble stabilizer: one for the cover design, and one listing the four most common types of hand needles, to title the inner pages of your needle book. Each pattern sheet measures 4.5 in (11.4 cm) x 2.75 in (7 cm).

Trim, peel, and stick the stabilizer to your fabric, then stitch right through it. When you’re finished, the stabilizer dissolves in water, leaving only your stitches behind. The stabilizer is completely non-toxic and safe to wash down drains.
