E-Zee Cut®Hefty 2.0 oz. is a medium weight, Cut Away stabilizer. A high quality backing, it has a lofty, soft hand that is great for use with medium stitch counts and medium density designs. It is a backing that hoops well, helps to provide clarity in designs, and will maintain its shape after repeated washing. Use with medium weight fleece, knits and stretchy fabrics. Cut Away backings should be used for unstable and knit fabrics. Available in black and white.
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.
