"No Show" Nylon Mesh is designed for a single layer application, and features the most stable no show mesh on the market.
It is a 1.5 oz sheer cutaway. This product is beige and unlike traditional cutaway, it will not shadow through on light colored fabrics, such as knits. Its softness makes it ideal for children's clothing and baby garments. This product is fusible so there is no need for basting or messy spray adhesives which leave a residue on the needle and machine. By fusing the stabilizer to the back of the garment, we are more successful in hooping and do not stretch the garment out of shape. The stabilizer is temporarily attached to the entire area where embroidery will be stitched unlike spray adhesives which only "spot" tack and allow shifting of the fabric.
- Will support around six to eight thousand stitches on an average size, well-digitized embroidery design (4" x 4").
- Can use to cover up scratchy stitches on the back of the embroidery.
- Will not shadow through on light weight cottons and knits.
To use Floriani No show Nylon Mesh Fusible:
- Cut a piece of the stabilizer at least one inch larger than the hoop size you are planning to use.
- Fuse the entire piece of the stabilizer on to the back of the garment using a low to medium temp, dry iron. (260°F, silk setting). When pressing the stabilizer on to the garment, the iron surface should touch the fabric, not the stabilizer. Use a press cloth or sheet if necessary.
- Hoop the garment and place the embroidery frame on to the machine. Complete the layout and centering of the design.
- Important! If the design is denser than 6,000 stitches or if it is a poorly digitized design (too many stitches for design's size), "float" one layer of Floriani Medium Tearaway between the hoop and the bed of the machine for each additional 8,000 stitches for added support! After the design is complete the tear away can be removed leaving just the soft mesh against the skin.
After the design is complete, remove the garment from the machine and embroidery hoop. To remove the No Show Mesh Fusible, re-heat the stabilizer and peel it back gently to the design and trim.
*Tip! If embroidering knit, don't forget to use topping!
*Tip! To get extra support on large or problem designs without adding bulk, try crossing two layers of the fusible mesh, one at 90°and the other at 45°. This will offer a tremendous amount of stabilization without stiffness.
**Note: All irons heat differently. The iron temperature given above is a starting point. If you find that you are not getting a good fuse, slowly increase your iron's temperature until you achieve a good bond between the fabric and stabilizer.
