The Dash print is a great stash builder on it’s own and the more subtle print in our selection.

Want to embroider on a t-shirt or babygro? Not without this stuff, you don’t! Iron it onto your fabric to avoid it from stretching while you stitch. Then, simply tear it away when finished embroidering. Don’t worry, it comes with full instructions telling you exactly what to do with it. TOP TIP: Can also be used topside on dark or difficult fabrics – apply patterns onto the stabiliser instead of the fabric. Find it in the shop here.
