Fabric Fusion

I've been experimenting fusing different fabrics with bondaweb.  I say fabric, but I've used lace, feathers, sweet wrappers, flowers and lots of other things too.

I decided to firm this piece up by machine stitching round the outside first then stitching round a 'window' which I cut open and stitched back with beads.

Still lots of granny squaring going on!

Anther fusion with window as above, using dried flowers.

To fuse the fabrics I placed a piece of sheeting on the bottom, followed by a piece of bondaweb, followed by scraps (any bits you want to put in) then either sheer fabric or netting.  It's fun and almost instantaneous, which I like.  My patience for big craft projects is limited.
