The wonky shed is finished!
And the sulky solvi rinsed out without leaking printer ink.
I found using the hoop a little difficult with the sulky solvi as it kept peeling apart, I think I would tack it down if I used it again.
I also found the stitching a little hard going in places, working through 2 pieces of fabric essentially so it was a little stiffer. The needle didn't really get too gummed up, I just wiped it occasionally.
I soaked the embroidery in luke warm water, it took a little longer than I expected for it to dissolve but it's the first time I've used a stabilizer that dissolves. Little bits of gummy stuff floated to the top of the sink. I soaked it three times in fresh water to make sure that there was none left in the embroidery. It has all disappeared with no nasty ink bleeding. I used an ink jet printer so I am not sure whether it would be the same for a laser printer.
On the whole I still prefer to use my old pen/light box tracing method because I found the stitching experience wasn't quite what I would like. But if you hate tracing or have difficulty with tracing I think it's a very viable option.
