Adhesive-Back Aqua-Melt Water Soluble Stabilizer

The ultimate wash-away stabilizer is now available with an adhesive back!

Combines all the best features of regular Aqua-Melt, plus the peel and stick adhesive backing makes this the perfect stabilizer for any small or hard to hoop projects. Simply hoop the stabilizer only, adhesive side up; score the protective paper around the edge of the hoop and peel it off, then adhere your item to the hooped stabilizer and you're ready to go. After embroidering, rinse the item in warm water or a gentle wash cycle and the stabilizer completely washes away!

Suitable for use as a backing or as a topping and, just like regular Aqua-Melt, it washes away completely in water!

NOTE: Adhesive-Back Aqua-Melt stabilizer is not recommended for use in "Fiber Lace" projects or in any application where another embroidery backing or topping film will be directly applied to the adhesive side of this AquaMelt product.

Product is 11" wide.
