Just learning your serger? This project is quick and easy using the flat lock stitch. It's easy peasy using a charm pack to make the tote!

Spring Location: Beginning Embroidery Working with Sheer Fabrics

Sheer material is a nice general term for anything you can see through or is opaque. When it comes to stabilizers and materials for sheer the materials are very different. The type of stabilizer though is very much the same. Sheer materials can be tricky. If you use too much stabilizer the material will become stiff, and if you use too little the material will pucker.
