Default What is French Fuse interfacing ?

I read an article where someone mentioned this interfacing to use on stretchy fleece but I can not find it listed anywhere. I have some bubble fleece that I think I would like to use it on but would like to know more about it. Just unable to find any info on it. Is it a Pellon product ? Thanks for any help.

I've never heard of French Fuse. What are you doing with the minky? We might be able to help you better if we understood the application.
I've used minky as a backing and not needed to fuse anything to it. I *have* talked to people who used it as a backing without any batting and had problems with fuzzies being pulled from the back to the top of the quilt. So when I quilted mine, I used a batting and had no issues at all. Is this why you're interested in the interfacing?

I use French Fuse Interfacing for tshirt quilts, in fact I just purchased some this week at a LQS. It stabilizes the tshirts…

I have suggested it before on this forum, it may have been me. I used it on a minky back to a quilt. Google it on you tube, there are several great videos. It worked like a charm on my quilt. I don't know how it would work on the "bubbles". It's used in clothing construction. It's not pellon, though pellon might have a tricot fusible interfacing. I just ironed it onto the back of the minky and it stopped the stretch. The interfacing stretches one way so iron it the opposite way from the stretch in the minky. What was neat about it is it can't be felt. The minky is still soft not stiff.

Default French Fuse

Floriani Dream Weave is what weve always used on knits, minky, any stretch fabric. Its perfect for just the right amount stabilization.
