Cover-A-Stitch is a polyester weave fusible backing that is used to cover finished embroidery stitches on the inside of the garment. By covering the back of the embroidery, it prevents thread ends from coming in contact with skin and causing irritation. Cover-A-Stitch is ideal for infant and children's clothing as it protects sensitive skin from scratching that can be a result of the embroidery thread ends.
Cover-A-Stitch should be fused on back of garment with a press or iron at temperatures between 250-270 degrees F. (for about 15 seconds). Make sure the side with the fusible is facing the garment. To determine fusible side, hold the Cover-A-Stitch up to the light, the fusible side will have a glimmer.
