IHAN's 30 Days of Giveaways
Day 13 Giveaway
I am so surprised every time I hear someone say that they have not heard about Mistyfuse. If this is the first time you are hearing about Mistyfuse, boy are you going to thank me.
The official description for Mistyfuse:
Use paper-less Mistyfuse® for all weights of fabric from velvets and cottons to delicate tulles and organzas. It's a dream to work with—it handles well, is incredibly sheer, doesn't add bulk to your fused piece and bonds firmly once cooled. And since there is no added adhesive, it will never gum up your scissors or quilting needles.
"My" description of Mistyfuse:
I met Iris Karp (Owner of Attached Inc.) in Pittsburgh last May. She demonstrated how Mistyfuse works and I was fascinated. I'm sure she thought I was absolutely nuts because I carried the sample she gave to me all around for the duration of market asking people if they were familiar with it. I sent everyone I spoke with over to Iris so she could show them how cool it is. I'm surprised Iris did not call the police and report a nutcase on the loose. (No one here will be surprised because all of you know when I learn about something that is really neat and works like it says it will.....I tell everyone I know. )Use it...trust me...you won't be sorry....excellent fusible that is light and does not make your fabrics or papers hard or stiff....they stay nice and soft...(stop thinking about Charmin Toilet Paper will ya.....it is soft but not nice and thin like Mistyfuse)

Here are some of my customers e-mails with their thoughts on Mistyfuse:
Mistyfuse and I have gotten to be great friends, and it is definitely my preferred fusible. I had avoided using fusibles because they made my quilts stiffer than I liked, but Mistyfuse converted me. It is so light I have even used it under organza. My latest project involved small narrow circles and ovals of fabric, and Mistyfuse made it possible to easily translate my vision into fabric; if I had had to pull paper off all those narrow pieces of fabric, I would have gotten very frustrated with the process. It gets an enthusiastic recommendation from me.

Mistyfuse is a great product. Recently I made ATCs using layers of candy wrappers and Misty Fuse was so easy to work with to get the look I was hoping for.
MJE's Bag Tag Tutorial is posted on the sidebar of my blog. I make fun Bag Tags using Mistyfuse. They make great gifts and I love them to put on all my bags including my co-workers backpacks.
Mistyfuse comes in :
In accelerated aging studies, exposure to UV rays have been shown to cause fusibles to tan (darken). Especially on light colors, sheers or other light weight fabrics, and surface use, tanning may read as a color shift or dark spots. But now there’s Mistyfuse Ultraviolet! Mistyfuse Ultraviolet is specially formulated with an effective retardant to protect against the tanning effect of UV rays - without sacrificing any of the inherent Mistyfuse qualities you expect and trust. Mistyfuse Ultraviolet is white and fuses clear.
Use Mistyfuse Black with any fabric or with tulles and sheers to create shadow and other special effects.To have a package of White Mistyfuse shipped to the address of your choice, you need to leave a comment here telling us about your experiences using Mistyfuse and if you have not used Mistyfuse please tell us what you intend to make using Mistyfuse.
