Stabilizer? Yes or No?

13 Jul

I’ve had a few people ask me about stabilizer for fabric the past few weeks. I decided to dip my toe in the water and ask everyone who reads this!

I’ve never used it, but every now and then, I think to myself, it would be nice for some projects, but I also hear it makes the fabric not as soft and makes it rather rigid and uncomfortable. I know people say to use it for wall hangings because you won’t be touching them, and it helps get you those perfect corners! I just don;t know, so I’m hoping one of the readers will help me out here, and help everyone else out as well by letting me know what they think.

    Don’t get stabilizer you leave on. Get a tear-away kind or a kind that will dissolve when it gets wet (washed) the first time.

      I could see where one that would wash off could be very nice!

    I agree with Maria, I use washable when quilting appliqué pieces. Easy to sew with, and love that it washes away.
