Economizing your stabilizer

Zig Zag Sewing - Newcastle Patchwork Quilting ShopTo economise on Wet N Gone, cut a sheet of Stitch N Wash [or some other less expensive stabilizer] big enough to fit whichever size hoop you plan to use. [I stitched a ‘basting frame’ design the size of my embroiderable area as a guide.]

Cut a ‘window’ in that sheet large enough for your design (or lace motif) but a little smaller than your ‘basting frame’ and lay a piece of Wet N Gone over the Window. Then tack this piece in place & Voila! Ready to sew, using half the quantity of Wet N Gone! The Window Frame can be re-used.

Thanks to Jennifer Sterland for this tip.
