Do you want to sew fabric cases that really protect your electronic gadgets? Do you want your fabrics to be as firm as canvas, but still feel like supple leather?
Than this is the stuff for you!
This superior quality specialist fusible interfacing will give your fabrics a leather-like feel. You'll get fabric which is firm yet supple - like leather, but not hard - like cardboard.
It's also crease resistant - just like leather (should you accidentally fold it, creases iron out easily). Use it on quilt weight to heavy weight fabrics to make your projects look and feel professional and be highly durable. Just the job for making laptop sleeves/wallets/bags or large size duffel/travel/overnighter bags, firm clutches or any bag that you want have a leather-like feel.
Also great for stabilising for heavier weight metal closures, belt/bowl/hat making. Easy to hand or machine sew, try it, it's incredible! Please note this product will arrive folded - when you are ready to use it, the creases will iron out just fine!
Method of use:
First iron the fabrics at length with steam to avoid any shrinkage later on. Allow the fabrics to dry completely. Place the interfacing with the coated side on the wrong side of the fabric. Then cover with a damp cloth and press the iron carefully for about 6 seconds, step by step each area; iron setting: wool. Allow the pieces to cool flat for about 30 minutes, so that the adhesive can set properly.
We strongly recommend that you attach a small piece of interfacing to a fabric remnant with your iron first to make sure that the hold and the adhesion meet your expectations.
