Jenny Haskins Cutaway Magic 20" x 10 yds (50.8cm x 9.14M) - Sheer Fusible Cutaway Stabilizer
Give your delicate knits and stretch fabrics a secure foundation without adding bulk when embellishing with embroidery or needlework. Cutaway Magic is a non-stretch, fusible cutaway stabilizer with a unique embossing pattern that provides a light yet solid foundation for most types of embroidery designs. The temporary fusible coating keeps your fabric from shifting during the embroidery and hooping process and eliminates the need for messy spray adhesives. Because of the stabilizer's sheerness, you will enjoy soft results with no ugly square shadowing through the front of the garment along with a flexible embroidery design.
Will support around six to eight thousand stitches on an average size, well-digitized embroidery design (4" x 4").
Will not shadow through on light weight cottons and knits
To use Cutaway Magic:
Cut a piece of the stabilizer at least one inch larger than the hoop size you are planning to use.
Fuse the entire piece of the stabilizer on to the back of the garment using a low to medium temp, dry iron (260°F (120°C) Silk Setting). When pressing the stabilizer on to the garment, the iron surface should touch the fabric, NOT the stabilizer. Use a press cloth or sheet if necessary.
Hoop the garment and place the embroidery frame on to the machine. Complete the layout and centering of the design.
Important! If the design is denser than 6,000 stitches or if it is a poorly digitized design (too many stitches for design size),"float" one layer of Tearaway Magic between the hoop and the bed of the machine for each additional 8,000 stitches for added support! After the design is complete the tearaway can be torn away leaving just the soft mesh against the skin.
After the design is complete, remove the garment from the machine and embroidery hoop. To remove Cutaway Magic it may be necessary to re-heat the stabilizer and peel it back gently to the design and trim.
*Tip! If embroidering knit, don't forget to use topping!
*Tip! To get extra support on large or problem designs without adding bulk, try crossing two layers of the fusible mesh, one at 90°and the other at 45°. This will offer a tremendous amount of stabilization without stiffness.
**NOTE: All irons heat differently. The iron temperature given above is a starting point. If you find that you are not getting a good fuse, slowly increase your irons temperature until you achieve a good bond between the fabric and stabilizer.
