Directions for Use:

  • Place one sheet of Perfect Stick Cutaway within the embroidery frame with the paper side facing up.
  • Using a sharp tip such as a “T” pin, lightly score the release paper.
  • Peel the release paper to the edge of the frame which exposes the stabilizers sticky surface. 
  • Press fabric or item in place and smooth out any wrinkles.
  • If possible, use your machines baste feature for an extra secure hold. 
  • Embroider the design.  *Note - If the design is poorly digitized, large in size or overly dense, it may be necessary to float additional fiber support such as Floriani Medium Tearaway under the hoop. 
  • Once embroidery is complete, remove the item from the frame and trim the stabilizer as close as possible to the design. 
**Tip for embroidery on lycra/spandex blend knits or extremely stretchy fabrics – Before sticking the fabric to Perfect Stick Cutaway, prep the fabric by fusing one layer of Floriani No Show Nylon Mesh Fusible on the back of the fabric.  Be sure to use a piece of Mesh at least one inch larger than the embroidery design.
