Solubles

Washway Adhesive self adhesive water soluble fabric 102cm wide, £14.00 a metre.

Hot water soluble fabric @£14 a metre

Madeira Cold Water soluble (CWSF)
A product, with the appearance of ‘vilene’ easy to sew on and easily removed. Will take quite a lot of stitching.
£5.00 a metre

 

 


Clear plastic, work can be more easily seen during machining, the different types are:

Romeo £5.00 a metre
Dissolve in warm water, can be used without a frame.

Guliette £3.00 a metre
Half the thickness of Romeo.  Dissolve in cold water.

Hot Water Soluble Fabric £14 a metre
This is a properly woven fabric which will take a great deal more stitching into than the other types, it can also be moulded into shape during the dissolving process. Stitch as required then pin the piece onto a piece of polystyrene before immersing it into a bowl of boiling water.
This sample was made by sandwiching the Hot Water Soluble fabric between layers of fabric, stitching a grid, then pouring boiling water over the sample in a washing up bowl. The soluble fabric shrinks, but the base fabric doesn't,      giving a shirred effect.

Water Soluble Paper
£4.00 a piece, approx A1
Draw, print or photocopy your design onto the paper
Stitch as on the fabric. Paper washes away easily , though interesting effects can result if water is dropped over some areas and not completely dissolved away. Xpandaprint or other resist media can be used with good effect.
