Anyone ever use this stuff?
I am about to cry because I used it on satin that I spent forEVER cutting out for my skirt and it looks like it ruined the material.  Cry

I suppose I have to re-cut it? Sad

I used it on cotton blends and it seemed to work fine, but then again it's pretty much a plastic so it hardened the edges like glue.  how much did you put on the satin/where?

I put it along the edges and it spread- A LOT! I did exactly what the bottle said to do and it spread over my seam allowance. I have a feeling I am going to have to re-cut the fabric. I think it's ruined.

It always stained whatever fabric I try to use it on. One dab and it just seeps everywhere, I definitely understand where you are coming from. 
Sorry it ruined your skirt Sad
