Stabilizer for blanket and clothing edges

giasgrammieJune 17, 2006

I am new to machine embroidery. I understand the need for stabilizer etc. I embroider on fleece and have had great results so far. But I don't know what kind of stabilizer to use to embroider and finish the edges ( blanket/ other decorative stitches). Is stabilizer made in thin rolls that can be pinned to the edges? Or is there another method to assure that the embroidery doesn't sink into fabrics like fleece? Cutting strips long enough to attach to blankets seems like a great deal of work. Is there an easier way? If anyone can help I'd appreciate it.

Check eBay. I was just looking for embroidery cards and found lots of listings for large rolls of stabilizer. Hope you find what you need.

E bay really has the best prices for large quantities of stabilizers. However, I don't know if they have the thin rolls that you need for a blanket edge. In a pinch,you might try adding machine tape.
Good luck!

I usually cut strips of solvy. It's kind of a pain, but the good thing is you don't have to tear it out - it comes out in the wash. Just get it wet and it disappears!
