Floriani Stitch N Shape

Floriani Stitch N Shape® Stabilizer

Use for adding shape, form and/or dimension to tote bags, placemats, fabric bowls/boxes, hat brims, ornaments, paper dolls and more. This remarkable product will hold its shape after it is inserted between two layers of fabric. You can stitch or embroider directly through it. Items constructed with Stitch N Shape® can be laundered and then reshaped by steaming. Create unique picture frame mats by painting, stitching or embellishing directly on it.

Stitch N Shape® is available in regular non-fused, single side fusible and double side fusible.

Floriani Stitch N Shape® Stabilizer

*To fuse fabric to Stitch N Shape® Double or Single Side Fusible:

  1. Begin by laying a heat resistant product such as a Teflon pressing sheet or parchment paper on your ironing board. If using the Double Side Fusible version of Stitch N Shape®, this will prevent the heat from the iron coming through the product and fusing the Stitch N Shape® to your ironing board cover.
  2. Place decorative fabric on top of the Stitch N Shape® (wrong side to the fusible side) and press it in place using a small amount of steam and a medium temperature on your iron. Remember to press, don't "iron"!
    *Tip - Since you are using steam to set the bond between the fabric and the Stitch N Shape®, it is necessary to pre-shrink your fabric for optimal results.
  3. For Double Side Fusible, turn the Stitch N Shape® over and cover the exposed fusible side with the wrong side of the decorative fabric. Press using a small amount of steam once again.
  4. Begin construction of your project, with both fabrics permanently fused in place! Remember to stitch slowly for the best results. If doing embroidery, set your machine speed to 600 stitches per minute or less.

I'm new to machine embroidery so sometimes I make mistakes. I used Stich N Shape to make a 3x3 Sleeping Beauty design for my granddaughter. When my machine said "Bobbin Thread Low" I changed the bobbin and only then did I realize that I had forgotten to put 60 wt. bobbin thread in the machine before stitching. The majority of the design was stitched out using regular old poly cotton thread, probably 40 wt., in the bobbin. The design stitched out so well that I had no idea that the bobbin thread was wrong. Stich N Shape saved the day by holding all that heavy stitching and saved me ruining my project.
