Creative Textile Art – Bondaweb with Kim Thittichai
Bondaweb is just like a double sided sticky tape for fabric. Iron it and it sticks. It’s great for applique, but that’s not all. Join Kim in her YouTube video on some alternative ideas for using this great product.
An iron-on stiff interlining with a leather-like feel. Suitable for bag, hat and belt making and general crafting. It is tear and crease resistant and non-fray. Cool iron-on. Wash up to 30 degrees and dry cleanable. Check out Kim’s YouTube video on Decovil. She refers to Decovil Light and standard.
Lamifix Glossy (Our Favorite!)
We are regularly asked for PVC, suitable for table cloths, wash bags, play mats, but not everybody likes the same designs and the designs available are quite limited. Vilene have helped us out here! Lamifix Glossy and Lamifix Matt are very similar, just giving a matt or glossy finish. Simply iron onto your favorite fabric, and voila, you have your fabric plastic covered fabric, that you can easily stitch through to make up your newly inspired projects! Check out Vilene’s YouTube video for a quick demonstration of how to use it!
