This is one of my favorite products to use for preventing “show through” of dark colored fabric under light colored embroidery designs. It’s made of 100% Polypropylene and is washable and dry cleanable. Because it is soft and very pliable it does not add stiffness to the design nor cause the stitches to buckle. Simply place it over the fabric where the design will stitch and then stitch your design. Tear away as much as you can. Any tiny bits that remain may be melted away by gently touching them with the tip of a hot mini-iron!
This product is recommended for small fill or satin stitch areas only. It is sold by the yard and by the bolt at many fine sewing and craft stores. You can order a 9” x 20” piece here to give it a try! Price includes shipping to continental USA addresses.
