It’s best to have a teflon sheet… or a piece of parchment paper, to fuse the fibers or textiva on.
Textiva is also fun to cut up! And it is what I began some of the embellishment on my quilt “Summer Shimmer.”
I hope you will try it!
I’ve cut it into simple, randomly cut strips, using the rotary cutter.
Make up your own recipe! Here I mixed three different colors of angelina fibers, and sprinkled the cut-up textiva pieces on top. Next, I laid over the corner of the teflon sheet, and pressed… for about FIVE SECONDS! It’s that fast! Leave your iron on it longer, and it will discolor… which may be a good or a bad thing, depending on your ideas… personal style, and intended use.
It is finished! Ready to embellish. Now you can just place it on your fabric, paper, or clothing item. I stitch right over it. I can also tear it, precision cut it into specific shapes… or not! Tomorrow’s post will show more about ANGELINA FIBERS. EnJOY!
I love your work and the fact that you share so much. Can you explain the difference between textiva film and angelina fibers. Thanks.
