No Sew DecoratingBook - 1997
"This appealing book outlines myriad fusible webs, battings, backings, tapes and trims, plus liquid fabric glue, and explains briefly how to use fusibles for numerous crafting techniques. Seven project chapters provide more detail as step-by-step instructions guide you in creating no-sew decorator accents and gifts-from kitchen and desk accessories to window treatments. Along the way, you'll learn about basting and binding, seaming and hemming, appliqueing and attaching trims-all with fusibles instead of stitches."--Sew News. Published in hardcover as Fast, Fun & Fusible.
Have you tried sewing with no needles and no thread? Introduce yourself to fusible sewing--the stitchless, press-on way to make clothes, decorations, and gifts. Simply place adhesives between two layers of fabric and secure them with a touch of your iron. With fusibles, once difficult, time-consuming tasks are finished quickly, easily, and with professional results. Some adhesives iron directly onto cloth, others come with a paper backing that protects it and the fabric from your iron. You'll find lots of situations where fusibles are better than sewing, including seaming two layers of fabric, hemming a raw edge, binding a cut edge, and applying trim, fringe, or tassels. And, for times when you don't want a seam to show, fusibles are the perfect solution. With fusibles you can also create no-sew appliques, make perfect covered cording, and laminate a fabric. Projects featured here include pillows, place mats, shower curtains, box covers, desk sets, reversible curtains, sofa throws, and many imaginative gifts. 128 pages (all in color), 8 1/2 x 10.
