What Fabric to Cover Reverse Side of Embroidery?
It's a Knit -- what is it?

My son likes machine embroidery on his clothes but hates the feel of machine embroidery next to his skin. On certain brands of children's clothing (for example, Gymboree) the reverse side of machine embroidery is covered by a very thin, usually white-colored knit that is glued over the embroidery. Does anyone know where I can buy this fabric? Thanks.

I've been using Sulky Tender Touch with good results.

Any Joann's has it. It looks like a mesh just smaller than window screen. You iron it on with a wet washcloth between it and the iron and it pretty much comes invisible. What I'm describing is what I use. It came from a bolt that you have to have cut over where all the bulk stabilizer and interfacing is. Here's a link to pretty much what I'm talking about.

OESD makes one too, maybe called Soft Touch. All these products are fusibles and work very well.

I have been checking Joanne off-and-on looking for the Sulky Tender Touch product, and I cannot find it. I checked the Joann's website, and it isn't sold there. Can I use the Sulky embroidery stabilizer in the same way as the Tender Touch -- that is, can I iron the stabilizer to cover the reverse side of the embroidery so the embroider doesn't touch my children's skin? Thanks.

Fusible Nylon Tricot works just as well as any of the packaged stabilizers mentioned above and is available at Joann's. Comes in white and black and great price especially when you use a coupon. Can be found in their interfacings section.

Hi Laura:

I followed Laura's advice and purchased the tricot interfacing sold at Joann's using a 50% off coupon. I purchased a yard for $6 or $7 (regular price was $13 or $14) so the price was cheaper than the Sulky Tender Touch, which I couldn't find in any event. The tricot interfacing worked so well -- soft to the touch and adhered very quickly to the embroidery. Thank you!

I have no idea what Apple thought I was saying so be a Peach and credit anything bizarre to auto correct.
