Vlieseline Fuse-n-tear backing 45cm white - 25m
Use iron-on Vlieseline Fuse-and-Tear embroidery backing as a temporary stabiliser for all sorts of needlework techniques, such as embroidery, appliqué, quilting or patchwork patterns - the backing can be removed afterwards. Also suitable for elastic fabrics. With (machine) embroidery, this embroidery backing prevents the fabric from stretching. The backing can also be stretched in an embroidery frame. With appliqué, the embroidery stabiliser gives the fabric strength, so that the appliqué can be sewn neatly to the base. Furthermore, this backing is excellent for patchwork techniques such as foundation piecing to accurately assemble intricate blocks such as Mariner's Compass, Storm at Sea or Virginia Reel. Also ideal for crazy patchwork. The patchwork design is drawn on the backing, after which the various patches are sewn on via the drawn pattern lines. Also suitable for printing on textiles with an ink-jet printer. This backing is made of 80% cellulose and 20% thermoplastic polyester (PES), is washable up to 30°C and has a weight of 48g/m2. Vlieseline Fuse-and-Tear is 45cm wide and available in white and black. Supplied per roll of 25 metres.
PROCESSING VLIESELINE FUSE AND TEAR
For quilting, appliqué and patchwork, first draw the pattern on the backing. Iron the embroidery backing onto the fabric for about 8 seconds and then embroider the design or sew the appliqué, quilting or patchwork pattern. Tear off the embroidery backing afterwards.
WHICH REINFORCEMENT TO CHOOSE?
We have a huge choice of reinforcements in our webshop: iron-on and sew-in, woven and non-woven, suitable for DIY fashion and for hobby purposes and from both brands and our private label. The most important thing is to choose a reinforcement material that suits the fabric and purpose:
For handmade fashion we have iron-on and sew-in interlining in our range. Cotton wadding and fusible interfacing are provided with an adhesive layer and are permanently attached to the fabric with a hot iron. Ideal for small parts of clothing to give shape or support to the fabric, such as collars and cuffs, or to make them stronger - think buttonholes. They are often also suitable for reinforcing home accessories (pelmets or tiebacks) and fashion accessories (bags or belts). They can also be used to make fabric less see-through (for the bodice of a dress, for instance). Choose smooth, thin reinforcement for lightweight fabrics and firm and thicker for heavier fabrics. For stretch fabric, elastic fusible reinforcement is the best option; for heat-sensitive fabrics (such as leather or faux leather) there is a choice between sew-in interlining and iron-on adhesive reinforcement that can be applied on a low iron setting. With cotton woven interlining, the direction of the thread should be taken into account.
For neat and sharp hems or for strong seams, we have all kinds of iron-on and sew-in tapes in our range, with or without pre-punched folding edge. Ideal for beautiful hems, round and straight seams, skirt and trouser bands or belts.
Batting or wadding is a thick, soft and insulating layer that is applied between two layers of fabric such as quilts or jackets. Can be made of artificial or natural fibres (such as wool, bamboo or cotton). There are thin as well as thick options (quilters speak of low loft and high loft).
For hobby purposes and needlework we have various special types of reinforcement in our webshop. Think of very sturdy reinforcement for making baskets, bags or other large textile objects, for example. For patchwork and quilting there is reinforcement available with a handy printed quilt grid and for embroidery there is embroidery stabiliser. This non-woven material is usually used to temporarily reinforce a delicate or stretchy fabric so that the fabric can be embroidered or appliquéd more easily on the sewing machine. Embroidery stabiliser is available in various options, such as solufleece (water-soluble), stitch-and-tear or vliesofilm (self-adhesive, for small patches that do not fit into an embroidery frame).
