"I always use Sulky Cut-Away Plus to stabilize this type of project because it adds a lot of body and stability to the finished item. I also love to trace my patterns onto Sulky Totally Stable Iron-On Stabilizer and iron the pattern right onto the fabric. It's nice to be able to use the same pattern over and over again. I also iron Totally Stable onto slippery fabrics to keep the fabric from sliding away from the scissors as I'm cutting. While I didn't use Heat-Away Disintegrating Stabilizer for this project, it is my very favorite stabilizer to use in my personal clothing for embroidry" - Jamie
This project is a great showcase for embroideries, appliqué, printer fabric sheets (photos) and more. Your imagination will go into overdrive on this one! It's a great shower gift, housewarming or hostess gift; perfect for teenagers expressing their sentiments, a great gag gift for one of those milestone birthdays. Using the printer fabric sheets you can print out a funny card or cartoon, a child's drawing for a grandparent. I could go on and on, but I'm sure you've already thought of 20 other things.
