You can quickly and easily make inexpensive Patches and Emblems with Heavy-Solvy™. Embroidered badges and embroidered emblems can be produced quickly and efficiently in this manner. Then, use Gunold's Heat and Seal™, otherwise known as BSN™, to permanently affix this resulting applique' or patch to any garment, hat, bag, or virtually any embroidery blank.
Main Embroidery Applications - Heavy Solvy™
Topping: Use Heavy Solvy™ as a topping for soft pile fabrics, knitwear, terry cloth, or whenever highly-detailed embroideries would disappear in the material. Residual stabilizer simply tears away.
Backing: Use Heavy Solvy™ as a backing for embroidery blanks where both fabric sides are visible to the end user, and residual visual backing is undesirable.
Learn & Touch Embroidery Hints and Tips
Heavy Solvy™ for Embroidery Patches and Embroidery Emblems:
Firmly hoop Heavy Solvy™ Film without additional stabilizer. Embroider directly onto the film and then punch out the finished embroidery from the embroidery foil or embroidery film. Now you have free-standing embroidery with neatly finished edges.
An Embroidery Tip:
When sewing completely filled-in patches, the embroidery design should be digitized so that all segments and threads are interlinked. If not, the design will fall apart when you remove the Heavy Solvy™ water soluble film.
