I recently got the Rock n Roll from sublime.  This is my first project after the stitch-it kit.  Anyway.  The way the pattern is folded, when it got to me some of the patterns had rubbed onto the others a tiny bit so when I transferred them to the fabric it also has the faint design of another pattern.  I'm new to this and wondering if this washes off or did I just ruin my fabric?

Someone said to use a Stain Stick or Clorox Bleach pen. I haven't had this problem, but I think those should work...

I've had success removing the ink by spray it with "Shout".  It was on a cotton knit fabric and it came out completely.  I don't know what kind of success you might have on other fabrics.

Awesome. It's cotton, AND I already have shout. I'll give it a try. Thanks for the tips.

D'oh! A stain stick should do the trick. Occasionally this happens with a pattern sheet- where the designs bleed onto itself while it's stored folded. This happens if the pattern pack was stored in a warm or humid environment, so you gotta keep 'em cool and dry! Also, once you get the patterns, if you can store the sheet in a way so that it's no longer folded on itself, this is ideal. But, really unless they're in a hot 'n humid environment, for a long period of time, this shouldn't be a problem.


But, if you got a defective pattern sheet from us- as in, you noticed as soon as you got your patterns and tore into them that something looked wrong, then we'll replace it. This happens sometimes, but not too terribly often. In every batch printed up there's inevitably the poo-poo sheet that got printed a little wonky!  Undecided

some of my stitch it iron-on designs are still visible on the tea towels and pillow cases i've stitched up. will that go away with washing over time? i just want people to notice the stitching and not see the black outlining so much

i can't use a clorox detergent or stainstick, because that might ruin the embroidery floss...?

NOT the BLEECH!  LOL, yeah you don't want to use the actual liquid in there or on it, but they make these sticks and gels now, if used carfeully, can remove the marks and safely be washed.

My understanding of the stain stick (which I have not had to use YET, lol) is that it is not bleach, but a concentrated detergent.

Embroidery floss should be bleed proof(esp if it is DMC, as many years I used it I have never had a bleed issue), so no worries there, however, I have no idea about any other floss crands as all I have ever used is DMC.

Good luck and I hope someone else may have an answer for you.  I found my stain stick in a quiters section of JoAnns.  As I said, I have not used it, but from what I have heard it is fabulous to remove the marks from the patterns (my big fear is going too thin one day, so I bought it knowing that day will come!)

I used Shout spray on my problem area and it worked, I also scrubbed it in a bit.  But the iron on transfer that was suppose to be there (not the run off that I didn't want there) didn't come out.  So I think the darker it is the less likely it will come out.

see, that is where I hear the stain stick rocks...it takes those out...all the dark stuff...

the just rubbed it in and tossed in the wash...as I have said, I have yet to try it, but I will give that my first go jsut because it has come so heavily reccommended....

you did not apply the shout to the darker lines from the pattern did you?
