E-Zee Cut® Extra Stable 2.5 ounce is a medium weight, Cut Away stabilizer. It is a low profile backing with grids within the core to provide extra stability without the extra bulk of a lofty backing. The softness of this backing makes it ideal for us on garments that will be worn against sensitive skin. Use for high stitch count designs with medium to heavy weight fabrics. Cut Away backings should be used for unstable and knit fabrics. Available in white and black.
Please note that E-Zee Cut® Extra Stable 2.5 ounce is made of 100% polyester. Applying direct heat from an iron may cause melting. Use a press clothe and low to medium heat if ironing is necessary. Always test with the lowest heat first.
How to use Cut Away Stabilizers Cut a piece from a roll or use a piece of pre-cut to fit your hoop size. Hoop by placing the backing underneath the garment.
Embroider the design and remove the embroidered item from the hoop. Trim the excess backing with a sharp pair of scissors or shears, leaving approximately ¼” around the outside of the design. Rounding the corners instead of leaving them square or pointed will avoid curling later on.
Helpful Hint To avoid nicking the fabric when trimming away the backing: Hold the backing while trimming and let the garment drape. Be sure to face it so you can see both the edge of the design and the fabric while you are trimming.
