Cutaway is a fibrous material and does not tear. As its name implies, you have to trim the excess stabilizer away with scissors. Use cut-away on stretchy fabrics like t-shirts and other knits, or for any project where the stabilizer needs to remain behind to give continued reinforcement. When choosing your cut-away weight, take a look at your design’s stitch count. The higher the stitch count, the heavier your backing should be.
