We had talked about using/not using stabilizer on sweaters in another thread, and since I said I would post when I made my sweater, here it is. ^_^ I used Sulky's tear away, and I am SO glad I did, because this would have looked terrible without it. This loose acrylic really needed the stabilizer, especailly since the sweater is vintage and has had its share of stretching... One thing I would do differently is use stabilizer in the shape of a circle and a little bigger than my hoop. I had a rectangle shape here, and it was hard to get good tension with the parts around the design but still inside the hoop not being stabilized. This is a design I did myself, inspired by tattoo flash my guy had lying around from his days as a tattoo artist. A sweater for Ebay.  Cheesy Hope you like.

Where'd you find the Sulky tear-away?  I scoured my local Michaels Mega-Mart and found nothing similar.  Just the strips of fusable webbing used as hem tape...

I always advise people to use stabilizer........because it does exactly that, stabilize.  It helps to ensure even stitches on the fabric.  I like the Sulky water solubule stabilizer.  It is great and you put your design/pattern on the stabilizer!

Just my two cents.

Thanks. ^_^

I found the Tear-Away at Hancock's. They basically have all of the Sulky products. I think they had five different colors of the transfer markers/pencils last time I was there. I've used the tear away several times and really like it.

katie,

I've never tried tear away.  I think I like the water solubule b/c I can just toss my handiwork in the washer and froget about it.  But you can't wash everything so I am going to give the tear away a try on my next project.  Thanks for the tip!
