DMC water soluble canvas for mending and darning - 8 x 8.5 inch sheet


This listing is for one, 8 x 8.5 inch (20 x 22 cm) sheet of DMC water soluble canvas.

This DMC water soluble canvas was created for cross-stitching patterns onto fabrics however, it works wonderfully for stabilizing holes in wovens and knits during darning.

The canvas is clear and flexible but sturdy enough to not crush or fold when in use. Photos 4 through 8 show how I use this canvas for weaving a patch over small holes. First, I tack the canvas over the hole with some stitching. Then I begin to weave over the hole, using the canvas as a guide. It is important to make sure to go well past the edges of the hole so that the finished patch will be stable. When finished weaving my patch I trim the edges of the canvas and dissolve it away in hot water. The last photo shows the patch after it was machine washed and dried.

I used short pitch sashiko thread in the midnight color for my patch. This thread can be seen here:
