Bond 'n Stitch 'n Dissolve
A new soluble fabric with a fusible surface. Ideal for free machine work.
Threads, yarns and fabric pieces can be arranged on the surface enabling a whole design structure to be built up in its entirety and then ironed to bond. A layer of clear soluble film eg Guliette can then be positioned on top of the surface making a sandwich for stitching onto. You can also iron fabric scraps, sari ribbon etc onto it and then stitch your design, then wash away the fabric.
Note; iron with a hot, DRY iron, otherwise it will start to dissolve!
Completely dissolves in cold water. Easy to use and comes with instructions.

The formula for the dissolvable plastic does vary and so do results when used for embroidery. Occasionally many rinses in very hot water are required.
