Mistyfuse Zips™ —Half Inch
Securing fabrics together is a ZIP with environmentally-friendly, solvent free, super-strong, never-gummy, ultra-sheer Mistyfuse Zips on our cheeky, 2-hand-free Bangle Dispenser!
Wear the bangle on the wrist of your non-dominate hand. Now both hands are free to roll off lengths of Mistyfuse, guide them into place, and even iron them down— all while wearing the very light, soft edged Bangle Dispenser™ the whole time!
There are non-ending ways to use Zips. Making cards? Secure your fabric (or paper!) art on there with a Zip. Taking some hand stitching with appliqué along with you on a trip? Secure that appliqué with a Zip instead of pinning. I hear that some people use our Zips instead of pins to hold binding on finished quilts while they handstitch the binding!!
Once you start Zipping with Mistyfuse you'll discover more and more ways to Zip!!!
Coming soon soon soon— rolls of 1¾" Zips for basting with Mistyfuse! But to get you ready.... here is some how-to information about Mistyfuse basting:
How to baste with Mistyfuse: Cut or tear sections off the Mistyfuse Zips™ to have bits of Mistyfuse® spaced evenly over the batting. (Not to worry if there is a wrinkle or fold! Weightless Mistyfuse is very forgiving and even if you had a kink in it, it would still be undetectable in your finished quilt.) Smooth your quilttop over the Mistyfuse Zips-dotted batting and iron just enough (with or without steam) for Mistyfuse to send its fine, engineered fingers into the layers to secure them together. Turn the assembly over and repeat for the quilt-back fabric. Alternately, apply the Mistyfuse bits-of-Zips to the back of your quilttop and quilt-back first. Once ironed, assemble your sandwich and iron just enough, front and back, to secure the layers together. That’s it!
Your sandwich is now perfectly secured and ready for the most successful stitching ever! Enough to baste (4) 36”x 48” sides or (2) 36”x48” quilts
