by Amanda StephanWhen I’m test stitching a new 4×4 embroidery design for the first time, I hate to use up my expensive stabilizer on it.
Instead I recycle used fabric softener sheets that I’ve ironed out and saved just for this purpose. Just hoop as you would a regular swatch of material and stabilizer, stitch your design, trim the fabric softener sheet and you’re finished! It’s never given me a bit of trouble, and even washes well! Happy embroidering!
