    Here is some Pellon I bought at Joanns on BF. My Bow Tuck pattern calls for Pellon 98F Fusuble Fleece. What do I have? I don't see any # on it.

    TIA

    for $1 a yd you didn't get much for sure.
    987 has the number on the bolt and the cheapest I've seen it 5-6 $ yd
    what you have is for a very lightweight job
    sorry

    My bow tuck calls for 987F fusable fleece. I couldn't find it so used 973F. Yours looks like 44F but I don't know for sure.

    What you have is a light weight fusible interfacing. I think the Bow tucks calls for a fusible fleece.

    Fusible fleece is almost like a lightweight batting that has fusible on one side only - the other side is a lightweight fleece.

    Maybe you could search for Pellon site and put the item no. in for a search? Have never seen it without a number.

    Ok, makes sense. I'll buy something that specifically says fusible fleece. What can I use this stuff for?

    without seeing it better, i guess you could use it like Eleanor Burns does. she makes sunbonnet sues and flowers and more by tracing the design on the non bumpy/fusible side and laying it on the right side of the fabric, stitching on the lines. and then turning, making a slit in the fusible if necessary to turn. then fusing to background fabric and stitching down permantely.

    Can also use when making t-shirt quilts, iron to the back of design to stabilize it.

    I use shape flex along with the fuseable fleece. It gives it a better shape to it, but I also use prequilted fabric for the outside of the purse and it wiorks realy well for me. fuseable fleece is expensive and $7. a yard is a bleep. So I try to use a 40% or a 50% coupon to buy it and that helps a lot. Have a great day, Huggies, Fay

    I've used it to stiffen up fabric for the interior pockets on a purse or the lining of a purse. It would work for the interior lining of the bowtuck and the pockets. But the outside of the bag you will need to get some fusible fleece. Go to joanns there are several brands of fusible fleece, ask the gal at cutting counter for fusible fleece, its usually about a 1/4 inch thick or just a little thinner. I suppose you could use it for applique but I think it would be to stiff for the finished quilt. Good luck with your bag!

    Sorry that is the wrong stuff. I use this to iron onto fabric that I am getting ready to embroider on. T shirt quilts, but it won't work for stabalizing a tote. I bought this at JoAnns for 2.99 for the bolt. I think it had 10 yds on it.
