Hi everyone, I am just reminding you to have a look at QUILTsocial.com next week June 24-28 when I will be guest blogging and discussing 4 different crafty/quilty uses for Sulky Stabilizers. Check out my picture below of basket making, creating your own textiles, english paper piecing and help with appliquéing circles all with Sulky Stabilizers. Who knew?, they are not just for embroidery.
These are free tutorials with lots of fun tips and ideas. Some experimentation on my part, but these stabilizers worked great!
I hope you are having a great week ❤️
