    Fusible Bias tape...yes or no

    Has anyone used this for applique work? I have many stems and vines in an upcoming project and wonder if the Clover brand is good.

    Thanks!

    I use fusible tape for Stained Glass quilting and I have had much better success with Clover than Dritz. Compare prices for Clover on the internet - I found the best price on Amazon. Hope it works for you!

    Thanks, "sew"! Clover has it for 7.90 and a place called Scrapbook Alley for 5.90. Have you used the Hunter Green? Want a green that is not IN YOUR FACE for vines, etc.

    Good prices. I bought the 11 yard package and some colors were more expensive than others. I have not used the Hunter Green. I used the black on my picture posted here and loved making it. I used the metallic gold on a Christmas table runner - a Brenda Henning Bear Paw book. I did have to use a small craft iron with this tape so I could get the curves and points just right. Happy New Year and New Project.

    I use it quite a bit. It's the only time I use my mini clover iron. the mini iron makes it alot easier , with no burned fingers. The hunter green is a almost a pine green ( if that helps). I used to get it at JoAnns with a coupon , but I don't think they carry much in the way of colors anymore.
    Do check the yardage on the roll. Many of the colors have smaller yardage than the black , or the metalics.

    Yeah, I did notice that Lori. Thanks! Will have to see if Fabric Depot has it. The pine green is about what I'm looking for.

    Just wondered if it were as good as hand made bias tape.

    Enjoy your day!
