Stitchy Crush: Sulky Sticky Fabri-Solvy
Whenever I post a photo on Instagram of the crane embroideries I'm working on, someone inevitably asks me what the white stuff on my fabric is. I always end up gushing over how much I love it, it's called Sulky Sticky-Fabri Solvy. I first learned about it from a post by Wendi at Shiny Happy World, and once I tried it, I never looked back.
You can either buy it in printer sized sheets or on a roll and you can draw or trace a design onto it or print directly onto it. For the cranes I print a sheet with about 20 cranes and cut them out. I love using it because I need so many of the same pattern, drawing them all out would be tedious. But it's also fantastic for using on a dark fabric or something that would normally be hard to trace or mark on. It also works great for felt.
Once you're done you soak it in water and it just dissolves away, it's amazing.
Have you tried Sulky Sticky Fabri-Solvy?
