Sulky 20″ by 5yd Tear-away Stabilizer

This is standard tearaway stabilizer. I use it to stabilize my sewing for lots of different applications, but particularly when sewing decorative machine stitches because it helps to support the stitching and they turn out beautiful every time.

Sulky Solvy Water Soluble Stabilizer

This is a clear type of water soluble stabilizer that looks like plastic. I use this for times when I need to trace a design onto the stabilizer before sewing machine lace. I just place the stabilizer over a copy of the design, trace it, then sew it.

Sulky Ultra Solvy Water Soluble Stabilizer

Similar to standard Solvy, but triple the thickness for applications where you need a lot of support for your stitching.

Pellon Wonder Under Fusible Web

I like using wonder under because it’s very thin and doesn’t stiffen your fabric too much and it really sticks things together when you need it to.

Warm & Natural Cotton Batting

Warm and Natural cotton batting is my favorite. It’s easy to work with, is very soft and has a nice drape, and it’s easy to sew on both by machine and hand.
