Flannel Board Characters Tutorial

Holly made a new flannel board to sit at your machine when designing quilt blocks.  I took a look and got another idea for making it double duty!

There are so many fantastic fabrics with great juvenile characters that would make fun flannel board characters to play with. I know it's all about electronics but I like to occasionally take a step back to a simpler time when your imagination took you everywhere you could want to go....   maybe even on a trip to africa for safari!

To make flannel board characters you will need:
  • Print fabric (I used a fun Bongo Jungle Alexander Henry canvas)
  • Peltex (a very stiff fusible interfacing)
  • Heat N Bond (or other fusible web)
  • Flannel
Step 1:
From your print fabric cut individual shapes leaving adequate border.

Step 2:
Measure your shape. Use this measurement and cut 1 - peltex, 1 - heat-n-bond, and 1 - flannel.
Step 3:
Iron print fabric to fusible side of Peltex following manufactures instructions.
Step 4:
Iron Heat N Bond fusible web to back of peltex.

Step 5:
Remove paper backing from fusible web. Iron flannel to this unit.
Step 6:
Cut out shape!

Amazing new friXion fabric pen!

We have a new product in the store and you are going to HAVE TO HAVE IT!!!  The new friXion erasable gel pen writes on fabric, but when you heat it - it disappears.  No more worrying about whether you washed out your blue lines before you iron your project. With the FriXion pen you just iron or toss it in the dryer and your lines are gone.    Watch this demo and see if you don't just love it!

note:  marks disappear at a temperature of 140 degrees. 
Marks will reappear at a temperature of 14 degrees.
