    fusible fleeece

    I am at the point in life where I have a lot of fabric and some fusible fleece. I would like suggestions on what I could do with it. There is no place I can give quilts, etc. I don't have a car now and no one seems to want anything. does the Pelon fleece work on place mats? I need to make smaller projects can find place for. I don't belong to groups or have friends to share with.....nor a lot of money

    Yes the fleece will work on place-mats and small wall hangings. I fuse it to the backing fabric and then quilt with the top layer. The fusing helps keeps all the layers together.

    Do you have local guild or quilt shop that you can call to arrange pick-up. Perhaps even a local charity or hospital could arrange pick up directly from you. Reach out and make a few phone call to inquire of needs.

    Best wishes with your fabrics! It's always fun to see the end results!

    Placemats are perfect for fusible fleece. My bee makes placemats for Meals on Wheels to give to their clients. I don't think it's called that anymore but I'm sure there is something like that in your area. The terrific thing is that they don't have to be matching placemats. Often only one is needed per household. Just a happy to brighten up someone's day.

    The fleece works well for placemats, mug rugs, table toppers, tote bags, small fabric baskets, even rugs, bath mats, there are many small projects to choose from the fusible fleece is nice to work with for many of them

    Placemats work great with fusible fleece. I make placemats and donate them to a local project, meals on wheels and mug rugs too. They give them to the people that receive the meals. You could look into an organization similar in your area to donate to.
    To many quilts, not enough wine.
