Can you use Stitch Witchery on Organza?

Recommended Posts

I'd rather not bother with trying to sew organza, but I've been trying to come up with ideas for my centerpieces and table overlays. A fabric store by my house is closing and they have the perfect organza on markdown, has anyone used heat on this type of fabric? I'm not sure if it would melt or something. Also wondering if the stuff would get melty-gunky thru the organza, since it's not a tightly woven type of fabric.

 

Thanks for any info!

you could also try the glue type of stich witchery, some of my students used that last year on the quilt we made.

I agree I wouldn't want to sew organza.

I would think you can, but you'd have to be careful on the amount - and when you iron it, put something over it - like a tea towel, pillowcase, etc. just enough to keep the direct heat off.

 

Can you go and buy a quarter yard just to test it?

well, don't hold your breath, as with most of my planning so far, it's gonna be a while until i have the money for all my projects. i'm having a feeling the last month of my timeline will be not so much filled with BDW playtime, but more so much filled with mad crazy bridezilla flurries sad.gif i'll re-post if i do end up getting this project together, i'm wishing i could just find what i want, premade. sad.gif sad.gif worried2.gif

Abbie, what kind of runners & size are you making? I was trying to decide if I wanted to do them.

 

I know I will be buying fabric for my arch and chair sashes. We have similar colors and my wedding is before yours...see where I'm going with this?

 

If I have anything you can use I'll be more than happy to pass it along.

great idea!
our tables (15 of them, plus a rectangle head table) are kind of oblong, big enough for 10 people at each. i have NO idea what size runners, i'm thinking at least 90" long, since the tables are about 60" long, and that would give some room for them to hang a bit off each side??

what kind?? well, also they dont have to be long rectangle shape, i guess i was thinking along the lines to make big squares or something i could actually just place the centerpiece on top of or something. a runner would work just swell, tho.

i'm so fried for ideas. i end up playing around on BDW instead of searching for inspiration sad.gif

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
