    If you're using Ultra Solvy, you could try an experiment with one sheet and see how it holds up. The hoop needs to be the smallest one for the design and the Solvy needs to be hooped taut. The reason 2 layers is recommended is because of the possibility of it stretching and distorting the design. I have made many FSL designs with the Solvy using one layer. With the Vilene, I usually use two. It depends on the design, hoop, and which type of stabilizer (film-like or fabric-like).

    I use two layers of Vilene Water Soluble stabilizer whenever I do FSL. Another good brand is AquaMelt sold by All Threads: www.allthreads.com. I use a double layer of this also.

    Vilene, which is the more fabric type. I found one layer was enough without any problems.

    They are on a rosemary plant. lol

    I've never seen a tutorial that used two layers. And don't always listen to clerks. My dd went to buy stabilizer and she sold her a sticky fusible when my dd was clear what she was making.

    I tried this on my embroidery machine tonight and was happy with how it turned out - I did an angel Christmas ornament. For those of you who have done this before, what kind of stabilizer do you use? Do you use a single layer, or do you double it? I used Ultra Solvy (I think that's what it is called) and used two layers, but I'm not sure if I need two layers.

    Just looking for some advice from those of you who have more experience with this. Thanks for sharing your ideas.
