Entries in heat n bond (2)
A twist on those paper snowflakes we made when we were small. You remember, the ones that our mothers Scotch taped in the window.
-2 different fabrics cut to any size as long as it’s square
-Heat n Bond cut .5” smaller on all sides, this way it doesn’t transer on your iron.
There’s an easier way to use Heat n Bond than the directions explain. Cut it to size.
Peel the glue away from the paper.
Place the Heat n Bond between the two fabrics with the wrong sides together.
Press. I like to use a press cloth just to be sure glue doesn’t get on my iron.
Cut all around except for the folded tip. If you cut this, everything will fall apart. Now unfold it and see how it looks!
We have some lovely metallic prints in that would be perfect for these holiday snowflakes! Come by soon!
I wanted to share a some info about a great product called heat n bond, a paper backed iron on glue. It is technically a bonding web, or fusible web. There are many products out there that do the same thing, heat n bond is the no sew variety that is great for crafting. It’s name is pretty self explanatory but here is the process for it’s use. Simple steps: Press, Cut, Peel, Fuse.
This product is versatile, it can be used with fabric of all types, felt, suede, leather, wood and cardboard.
The first step iron on the glue.
Cut out the paper backing to fit your shape now peel back the paper.
This next photo is showing the glue you can see it has stuck to the cardboard.
Now you want to attach your fabric. Place the piece of fabric over your areas with glue and iron.
The shape on the left is showing the fabric attached. The last step is to cut your fabric to fit the shape.
Osnaburg is the background fabric.
The letters are a wool blend felt.
Heat n Bond the adhesive used in this project.
The banner disks are hanging from twill tape.
All of these products are available here in the shop.
Little clothes pins available at Collage.
There is a banner hanging in the window right now. Stop by and see what it says.
Stay tuned for future posts on other types of bonding webs and their uses.
