Misty Fuse

Misty Fuse

I had a lovely morning last week trying out MistyFuse with my friend Hilary Tyreman.

This is the description on Amazon of MistyFuse:

Misty Fuse is an environmentally friendly fusible that is solvent-free and recyclable. It's been extruded to a very fine web to create a lasting bond without adding bulk. No extra adhesive to gum up your needles. It is suitable for a wide variety of fabrics from velvets and cottons to delicate tulles and silk organzas. The fusible is made from 100% thermoplastic adhesive polymer resin. Misty Fuse is a dream to work with - it handles well, is sheer and doesn't add bulk to your fused piece and bonds firmly once cooled.

I played with it in different ways, firstly just sandwiching threads etc. between two pieces of MistyFuse and then ironing between two sheets of baking parchment, then I placed threads, sequins etc., onto a piece of silk paper I had made previously to see what effect that had.  I used it in the same way as Bondaweb, the difference being that there is no stickiness and I am looking forward to trying it in the sewing machine and then using it for 3d projects.

Thanks for a fun and instructive morning Hilary!
