Another Stitching Stabiliser…

Last year I wrote a tutorial on using waste canvas to
Waste canvas lookslike Aida cloth but
has adhesive that dissolves when wet
allowing it to be removed once you have finished stitching.
I had been using canvas that I bought years ago
but recently my little stash ran out.
I haven’t been able to find it in the stores locally
but I did find another product from DMC
called Soluble Canvas.
This canvas is like a thin plastic sheet with tiny holes punched in it.
Otherwise it works just like waste canvas – 
stitch your design on a small piece then dissolve with water.
I found it a little trickier to see the holes
but sitting in a spot with good natural light fixed that.
So you’ll be seeing more singlets in my Madeit store very soon!

    Thank you for the great idea! This would be a fun way to add a little label to a quilt, or really anything. I love the idea of a small, beautiful project, quickly completed.
