You can do whatever you want! lol, in my opinion I couldn't see how this would make a very stable stabilizer.

let us know how it worked for you... I also think it would not hold the fabric enough to be worth the cutting time or the number of layers needed. But after testing let us know. thanks.

For years we have used the cardboard inserts that come inside hats as stabilizer.. it really helps control the low profile 6 panel hats.

Robert, do you find you need to change needles more often when using the cardboard? I have heard of others using it but have never tried it myself. I am always scared to stray away from more traditional methods. You use the cardboard often? Does it tear away easily? What if the customer washes it?

We have done it accidentally and it tore away just fine.

I schedule needles to be replaced on a more frequent interval than most shops would so I would be a good judge of whether the cardboard had much effect on them. Most of what we do is higher priced fabrics and art pieces so to me it is worth the added expense just to remove needles from any quality equation. To me the cardboard is already there.. nothing to cut down to size, just seemed easier and it really works to firm up the hat sewing area.
