Cutaway Medium Fusible 2oz
- Super soft feel for use on non-stable stretch fabrics
- Ideal for sweatshirts, fleece and sweater knits,
- A fusible version for even greater stability
The benefit of using this backing as an embroidery stabiliser is that it's not necessary to use multiple layers in random directions to support stitches. Cutaways are the best solution for fabrics that are considered un-stable such as sweatshirts, fleece, t-shirts, polo knit - stretchy items. Floriani Medium Cutaway Fusible has a light fusible coating, is very soft and yet solid stabiliser that will support medium to heavy stitch count designs, perfect for cutting close to the finished embroidery and leaving in place to support the stitches permanently.
By fusing (ironing), the stabiliser is attached to the entire area where the embroidery will be stitched unlike spray adhesives which only "spot" tack and allow shifting of the fabric. Floriani Medium Tearaway can be floated on the machine bed below the hoop before stitching if extra stability is required for larger/heavier designs above 14,000 stitches etc.
How to use Floriani Medium Cutaway:
Cut a piece of the stabiliser at least one inch larger than the hoop size you are planning to use.
Place the stabiliser to the wrong side of the fabric and hoop. Note! Use a low to medium temp, dry iron (260°F, silk setting) to adhere to stabiliser to the back side of the fabric. The surface of the iron should touch the fabric not the stabiliser. Use a pressing cloth if necessary.
Place the embroidery frame on the machine and complete the design. Note! If the design is denser than 14,000 stitches or if it is a poorly digitized design (too many stitches for the designs size), float an additional layer of Floriani Medium Tearaway between the hoop and the bed of the machine for each additional 10,000 stitches for added support.
Remove the hoop and garment from the machine and trim the stabiliser close to the design. You may need to apply heat and then pull it to the designs edge before trimming.
