    I have a stencil question: I have been slowly cutting out Angie’s Fall in clear vinyl. I bought some spray adhesive that quilters use for when I eventually put it on fabric and paint. I am a little terrified of the spray adhesive…any advice? I’m worried it will stick too much and damage the fabric or leave some sort of film.

    I am working on the Inked and Quilted Camisole Dress from book #2 although it’s hard not to dive into the new projects!

    Thank you,
    Jessica

      Jessica:
      I’m not sure if anyone answered you yet but what I have done is made some quick & dirty stencils (using transparency film & a hot knife) and did some tests using the adhesive I was able to find locally. Do the tests on some scraps that are similar to the fabric you’ll be using in your garment so you’ll be able to get a feel for how much to spray and if you need to let it dry for a while so you don’t get a big tacky mess. If your test samples come out well, you get the bonus of having some pieces that you can use as a quilt, or a pillow or an applique on another garment. :-)
      Good luck!
