    I think that is what it is? I bought it to iron on to fabric to stiffen it up before I made some purses. Anyways my question is how well does it go through the wash? Will it separate from the fabric at all? I do not plan on quilting the purse. I have bought it several times off the bolt at Joanns and have never had a problem with but was curious about washing. Of course I threw the tissue paper away that came with it. Thanks :)

    depends on the fusable product being used- some are a permenent bond- some are water soluble and dissolve when wet- you need to check the label for the product being used to see if you have to quilt it- if it is permenent- or if it dissolves in water.

    It will wash very well. I would suggest pre-washing the fabric first to remove sizing. It will adhere better.

    I think it will do fine, too. If anything, you might have to press it when it comes out of the wash just in case any of the interfacing separates, but it really shouldn't.

    Yeah I was worried about it separating. Thanks!

    I use the lightweight fusible to line the front of my tee shirts/knit tops. It hides the bra outline that I always have. The fusible stays in wash after wash. I use Pellon brand.

    As ckcowl said, it all depends on the particular product you purchased. Not knowing what that was, no one's answer can be certain.
