Messy Shiny Threads
I've seen tutorials on making fabric out of thread and scraps of cloth using water soluble stabilizer. I decided to give it a try. I dumped the thread on a few pieces of scrap fabric, covered them with the stabilizer, then randomly stitched all over it. The two light-colored pieces still have the stabilizer on them, the darker square has it washed off. They all ended up as vibrant as the square piece when washed.
The stabilizer melted away under warm running water. Goopy, sticky stuff as it melted. Kinda gross. But the end result looks pretty awesome.
Now I have to figure out what to make with them. I've been looking at applique patterns. Should be fun.
