I am learning to do fsl bowls and such. The problem I am having is that as the machine is stitching out each piece it gets to a point when the wss starts to tear around the edges of the design and it is no longer supported. I am using three layers of 3 layers of Pellon Sol-u-film lite and coats and clark poly thread. How can I prevent this from happening?

You need a heavier film. There is a heavy one by Sulky that I always use I forget the name of it.

Thank you, I thought as much, but didn't know if anyone had any ideas that I could try without purchasing more stabilizer, budgets a little tight right now, lol....I will wait till Friday and see what JoAnn's has for heavier one.

I love Aqua Magic, it's medium weight, and looks like paper. Just use 2 or 3 layers and you shouldn't have any problems.

I'm keeping the plastic film stuff just for toppers in future.

I concur. I ordered some and used it to make another batch of snowflakes. It is great!

Sewing machines make me happy. I like sewing with them, cleaning them, petting them, gazing longingly at them.

Problem is with layers it's quite possible to tear away one layer etc. A single layer would work best. It really depends on the designs and how much satin stitching it has like around the edges etc.

Isn't it terrific! It was what my Pfaff dealer was using when she was making the lace snowflakes; I asked her why she was embroidering on naked stabilizer, lol!

She uses 2 layers for smaller designs and 3 for larger ones.

I never would have guessed it was the dissolvable kind, love love love it!

It does look like paper. Washed out super easily, too.

I used this stabilizer. It worked very well for my free standing lace projects.
