Question re: Decor Bond & Fusibles

User avatar
VKStitcher | Posted in Equipment and Supplies on

Hi Y’all! I purchased several yards of Decor Bond, and there are some long creases in it because it was not wound smoothly on the bolt. My question is…should I try and get the wrinkles out before I fuse it on to my fabric (quilting cotton), or will the fusing of it take care of the creases? I’m making placemats and don’t want to have visible creases or wrinkles when they’re finished.

If I need to smooth it out before fusing, how is the best way to do it? Obviously I can’t iron out the wrinkles!

Thanks in advance for your advice and expertise.

Vickie 🙂

    Vickie, why not cut a sample and try it on a scrap of fabric?  If the crease irons out, you will know that it is OK to use it as it is.  If not, then you can try to relax it by preshrinking it in a tub of cool water.

      Thanks for responding MaryMary. I tried your suggestions on a scrap, and found that the creases went away when I fused the Decor Bond to the fabric. I spread the wrinkles out carefully as I pressed over them, and it fused together nice and smooth. The placemats are all ready to stitch up now. Thanks again!

          Dinner is probably in about 30 minutes, come on over and have a burger with us!  :-)<!----><!----><!---->

          The placemats are a Christmas present for my in-laws.  They are four-sided placemats--four placemats that are sewn together so you can flip them like pages in a book to get four different looks.  I got the template from a local quilt shop, but <!----><!----><!---->Nancy<!----><!---->'s Notions also sells it.  It's called the "Several Settings" placemat tool.
