I have had this for months and had not got round to using it. Well, to be honest I was nervous of using it as it's not cheap and I didn't want to mess it up. I looked at a few Youtube videos first then took the plunge. It really does make a huge improvement to my bag making. All the claims about making the bags look more professional are true and it's really easy to sew. For me the trickiest part is getting the foam onto the material without any creases but this is easily overcome with practice and you can peel it on and off while still hot from the iron until you get it right. I thought it might be a bulky to sew with but it glides through my machine. Bag making is my hobby and I will be using this for all my "special" bags, it's a bit expensive to use for every day shopping bags (but that's just my opinion). Just as a post note - it will arrive creased as its been folded but I found a tip on YouTube that tells you to just use your steam iron and hover it over the crease (obviously you can't place the iron on it) release the steam and the crease will dissappear.
This product is wonderful and was delivered before the expected date. The foam stabiliser is very easy to use and the difference it makes to handmade bags and other projects is amazing. The price when buying from USA is so much better and with free postage, so is a no brainier for me.
In my opinion, worth the money. Cheaper,fusibles are available,but for bag making this will give you a sturdy result so your bag won't "flop" when you put it down. I bought an on line class from Craftsy about bag making stabilizers, and this was recommended by the tutor (along with Pellon which is more expensive in the UK. The Amazon price for Bosal is very good, cheaper than some specialist on-site line sewing suppliers. Do try it.
Very nice stuff to work with, goes through the sewing machine seamlessly and I made a rather nice bag with it. However this stuff is expensive and impossible to get hold of. I would recommend a combination of interlining and wadding instead - it might take longer but my god it will be cheaper.
Lovely firm interfacing. Double sided fusible. I could have done with only one side being fusible for my project. It was awkward for me but would be great for other projects. I'll make sure I get one sided fusible for the project next time. I hadn't realised I had sent for double sided.
