Soldering Iron Fun!

17th September 2013

Spent a couple of hours using some ideas from my book by Margaret Beal-New Ideas in Fusing Fabric.

I used templates to cut 3 layers of organza into a variety of shapes and batons/strips.

Then I fiddled and pondered and pinned onto a piece of my ice dyed linen....

next I stitched using a variety of programmed stitches and attached 2 squares with diagonally cut holes..

these squares were raised from the surface and attached with an organza baton...

I do enjoy making 3D shapes but I must make my holes free stitching samples tomorrow then move onto soluble fabrics. I must stay focussed!!


  1. Your work with the soldering iron is fab and I love the designs. The possibilities are endless.

  2. You are having so much fun. What difference does cutting material with a soldering iron rather than scissors make?
    Don't stay too focused as I am sure your creativity comes to the fore when you let yourself wander free.

  3. I am having fun although I have had the day catching up on housework!!
    The soldering Iron only works on polyester, organza, man made fibres and the heat of the fine point melts the layers to give a really neat edge, neater than a scissor cut so is much more versatile!
