Sulky Sticky Fabri-Solvy is a printable water-soluble stabilizer with a light adhesive backing. Simply print or draw your embroidery design onto the Fabri-Solvy, peel and stick it to your fabric, then stitch right through it. The adhesive is light enough that it will not adhere to your needle. When you’re finished you can rinse the stabilizer away using plain water.
Fabri-Solvy is especially helpful for situations where design transferring is difficult, such as on dark or thick fabrics, or for stitching on fabric that needs extra stability, such as with lighter or looser weave fabrics.
Make sure to trace/draw only with waterproof pens/pencils, otherwise the ink will bleed into your threads when you rinse the stabilizer away.
Available in single sheets or packages of 12 sheets. Each sheet measures 8.5 x 11 in. /21.6 x 27.9 cm.
