I have yet to try embroidery (although I really really want to; my project list is just humongous at the moment), so I checked with Rachael from Imagine Gnats to find the low-down on embroidery stabilizer. Not only will you find a blog on Racheal’s site, but she has some beautiful free graphic downloads and embroidery patterns in her Etsy shop! Here is one of Rachael’s embroidery patterns, which is just adorable!
This is what Rachael had to say about Pellon embroidery stabilizers:
“My first real project with hand embroidery was when I started using it for the faces of rag dolls. The only real hand stitching I had done before was cross-stitch with my grandma, which I found to have been completely different… especially when I decided to try to hand embroider faces on upcycled cotton t-shirts. Pellon Tear-Away stabilizer was a life saver, and remains the only way I can hope to accurately embroider on stretchy and somewhat unpredictable fabrics.”
So there you go! If you are a seasoned embroiderer, please enter to win some great prizes! If you are like me and have grand plans to embroider someday soon, please enter as well! You have until Friday, February 24 at 11pm CT! Good luck!
