Default Re: this is bugging me

this stiffener...its called stiffy



Stiffy Fabric Stiffener, 8 oz.

Item # 1550

Create permanent fabric projects quickly and easily using Stiffy Fabric Stiffener with most fabrics. Creates beautiful fabric bows, stiffens needlework. Add lace, ribbon and trims to craft projects or mold or drape dollies and lace.

put in a spray bottle that has a mist setting mix it with water about 60/40 (water/stiffy) shake well, spray on ribbon allow to dry... put foil or paper crumpled towels to prop limp or over sprayed area to hold bow form in place. allow to dry... DO not over spray... it does not need to be saturated.

This is PERMANENT... so if you spray your bows on a towel use a old one you dont care about cause the stiffener over spray wil make your towel hard as a rock over time

So you spray the fabric stiffener on your finished bow? I might have to try this stuff!
I spray my boutique bows with starch and bake in the oven
Thanks for the info!

I spray mine with Faultless Heavy Starch then bake between 225-250 for about 15 min. If spraying before baking becareful with lighter colors, if left in too long they will get a yellowish tint to them from the atarch.

I throw mine in the oven for a little while. I have some that I need to put on clips that my "darling" daughter took & I found them under her piles of stuff. I shook them out & they popped right back into shape.

I think it may also be the ribbon. I have some stiffer ribbon that holds beautifully. Not sure where I got it from. Ribbon like UB definitely has to be sprayed.
