It's from whitelodge, the most horrible stuff since tissue lame! It doesn't stick to stabilizer, it's see thru, and bubbles wierd. This project is taking 3 times longer than it should. Dis like!!

Because it's cheap. (NT)..Saturday, June 22, 01:01:24am

It gives a nice sheen. Use a temporary spray adhesive to back with your fabric choice. (NT)No problemSaturday, June 22, 01:49:44am

It comes in a good range of colours that are good on stage, it is tough, cheap and very easy to work with (NT)Unless you try to stabilise it, which it doesn't need!Saturday, June 22, 04:59:46am

I agree with the op. i think it is difficult to work with. (NT).Saturday, June 22, 08:36:19am

I use it as an overlay--so there is always satin under it, a layer of tearaway for embroidery, and then just cotton lining. (NT)It's fine once you work with it a bit...no adhesive and no HOT ironSaturday, June 22, 09:36:16am

Try making a sequin dress with lots of embroidery on the sequins. Then you'll think twinkle satin is the best fabric ever invented (NT)!Monday, June 24, 04:52:55am

I serged my pieces together-2 layers of the twinkle one of the cotton backing-had no trouble at all. I did a huge appliqué, fused parts together and then stitched onto dress. Again, no problem. You need to watch the heat on you iron. I did a 3 tiered 1" pleated skirt. Worked great, couldn't be happier. I would use it again in a heartbeat! (NT)Love the stuffMonday, June 24, 07:17:24pm

I like working with it as well. It embroiders beautifully too. (NT).Tuesday, July 16, 05:20:27pm
