Saving face(ing)

So, um, yeah. Interfacing. Kind of a pain in my ass. But I think perhaps I'm using the wrong kind.

I made this today:

I used Pellon 808 Craft Fuse, which is apparently meant for industrial and military applications, and not, you know little sissy Hello Kitty purses. The good news is that my babysitter, for whom this is intended, will be able to deflect bullets, should any come her way.

It is cute. The stuff you want to use is Pellon 987f Fusible fleece. I use either one layer or one layer on the outer fabric and a second layer on the lining.

BTW, wore my Don't drink & Quilt t-shirt to a quilt show today and got lots of comments.

It's very cute, and really, you never know when you might need to deflect bullets.
