Vlieseline Vliesofilm self-adhesive 37.5cm white - 25m
Use the self-adhesive Vlieseline Vliesofilm embroidery stabiliser for all sorts of needlework techniques, such as embroidery or appliqué - ideal as a base for stretch fabrics or embroidery that is too small to be stretched in an embroidery frame. With (machine) embroidery, this embroidery stabiliser prevents the fabric from stretching during embroidery. With appliqué, this stabiliser gives the fabric strength, so that the appliqué can be sewn neatly to the base. It is made from 100% polyester. Vlieseline Vliesofilm is 37.5cm wide and is available in white. Supplied per roll of 25 metres.
PROCESSING VLIESELINE VLIESOFILM
Remove the paper layer and place the embroidery stabiliser on the wrong side of the fabric. Then embroider the design or sew the appliqué. For small items that need to be embroidered: tense a piece of Vliesofilm in the embroidery frame, remove a piece of paper the size of the fabric that needs to be embroidered with a hobby cutter and place the fabric in that spot on the embroidery stabiliser.
WHICH REINFORCEMENT TO CHOOSE?
We have a huge choice of reinforcements in our webshop: iron-on and sew-in, woven and non-woven, suitable for DIY fashion and for hobby purposes and from both brands and our private label. The most important thing is to choose a reinforcement material that suits the fabric and purpose:
For handmade fashion we have iron-on and sew-in interlining in our range. Cotton wadding and fusible interfacing are provided with an adhesive layer and are permanently attached to the fabric with a hot iron. Ideal for small parts of clothing to give shape or support to the fabric, such as collars and cuffs, or to make them stronger - think buttonholes. They are often also suitable for reinforcing home accessories (pelmets or tiebacks) and fashion accessories (bags or belts). They can also be used to make fabric less see-through (for the bodice of a dress, for instance). Choose smooth, thin reinforcement for lightweight fabrics and firm and thicker for heavier fabrics. For stretch fabric, elastic fusible reinforcement is the best option; for heat-sensitive fabrics (such as leather or faux leather) there is a choice between sew-in interlining and iron-on adhesive reinforcement that can be applied on a low iron setting. With cotton woven interlining, the direction of the thread should be taken into account.
For neat and sharp hems or for strong seams, we have all kinds of iron-on and sew-in tapes in our range, with or without pre-punched folding edge. Ideal for beautiful hems, round and straight seams, skirt and trouser bands or belts.
Batting or wadding is a thick, soft and insulating layer that is applied between two layers of fabric such as quilts or jackets. Can be made of artificial or natural fibres (such as wool, bamboo or cotton). There are thin as well as thick options (quilters speak of low loft and high loft).
For hobby purposes and needlework we have various special types of reinforcement in our webshop. Think of very sturdy reinforcement for making baskets, bags or other large textile objects, for example. For patchwork and quilting there is reinforcement available with a handy printed quilt grid and for embroidery there is embroidery stabiliser. This non-woven material is usually used to temporarily reinforce a delicate or stretchy fabric so that the fabric can be embroidered or appliquéd more easily on the sewing machine. Embroidery stabiliser is available in various options, such as solufleece (water-soluble), stitch-and-tear or vliesofilm (self-adhesive, for small patches that do not fit into an embroidery frame).
