I'm not a gadget gal.....of course I appreciate good tools but I def. don't try every new 'must have' product. And, I'm not especially a fan of raw edge appliqué. Bascially, I'm old school but there are times when raw edge appliqué makes sense.This product certainly swayed my thinking and it's one you must have in your sewing room. My friend Linda Cantrell introduced me to Fray Block, made by June Tailor. (I purchased it online via JoAnne Fabrics).
This is FAR superior to Fray Check and the other products most of us are already familiar with. It truly works, it's clear, DOES NOT stain your fabric or change its hand. Amazing!!
Linda suggested squirting some into a small container and applying with a tiny brush because it comes out of the tube way too quickly. The instructions call for placing the tube under hot running water for 3 mins. before using....Linda doesn't.
Though today was a bit chilly and I could see tiny particles in the liquid that normally aren't there. So I did as instructed, heating this product will assure it's clear when it's applied (and I assume also stain free!) Look how clean the fabric edge is after machine appliqueing.
