Vlieseline Vliesofix 20mm transparent - 25m
Vlieseline Vliesofix is a two-sided, iron-on adhesive tape on transfer paper. Also known as 'Bondaweb T25'. Ideal for creative purposes such as bias tape appliqué or patchwork (stained glass patchwork/tiffany patchwork and celtic patterns) or Log Cabin quilt blocks, but also great for sewing precise hems on clothing and accessories. Suitable for all fabrics. Vliesofix is made from 100% polyester, is washable up to 60°C, transparent and 20mm wide. Vliesofix is available in packs of 5 metres (see item no. 236020) and in packs of 25 metres. Supplied per 25 metres.
Vlieseline Vliesofix is also available in larger sizes for large appliqués (see items no. 236010 and 236210).
PROCESSING VLIESELINE VLIESOFIX
Put the rough side of the Vliesofix on the wrong side of the fabric and iron the tape piece by piece on the fabric for about 5 seconds at a time (iron setting 2-3 dots); let it cool. Remove the transfer paper and place the appliqué on the right side of the fabric. Place a damp cloth over it and press (do not iron!) the appliqué piece by piece on the fabric for about 10 seconds. Finally sew the appliqué, for example with a zigzag stitch.
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).
