How do I remove Pellon® Fusible Webs?


	

Pellon® Fusible Webs are intended to be permanent and there is no guarantee it will be able to be removed from your garment or ironing board cover. However, if the adhesive is not too deeply embedded into the fibers, you may be able to remove most, if not all, from your garment. Here are some tips that have worked for us:

  •  To remove the appliqué; heat it up with your iron without pressing. While it is still warm and being careful as the appliqué will be hot, gently remove the appliqué.
  • There is a product on the market called Carbona® for Glue and Adhesives. This is a spot remover that can be found in most supermarkets in the laundry aisle. Follow the directions on the bottle, being careful to pre-test first for colorfastness, etc. This product will cause the adhesive to “gum” up and then it can be removed.
  • If you have Wonder-Under on the bottom of your iron, you can purchase a product called “Hot Iron Cleaner”. This is sold in a tube and you can find it in most notions areas of your local fabric department. This works quite well in getting adhesive residue off your iron. We would suggest that if you use a lot of fusibles, that you purchase an Teflon® sole plate for the bottom of your iron such as Iron-Safe® which can also be purchased in your local fabric department. Adhesives wipe quickly and cleanly off your iron with this protector.

Batting Questions


	

What battings are available?

For an overview of all batting offerings, click here.

Do I need to pre-shrink my cotton or cotton blend batting before quilting?

Cotton and Cotton Blend battings can shrink up to 3-5%.   To avoid shrinkage prior to use, we suggest you soak the batting in hot water for 20 minutes.  DO NOT AGITATE WHEN WET.  Gently wring or press out excess water and lay flat to dry.  After your quilt is complete, you can machine wash cold on a gentle cycle and dry in dryer on low setting for best results.

Do I need to pre-shrink my 100% polyester batting or fleece?

No, these products do not need to be pre-shrunk.

What is a scrim binder?

Scrim binder is a thin sheet of polypropylene — very much like a dryer sheet — that is needle punched onto one or more sides of batting as it is processed. Not all scrim binders used today are alike. Pellon® batting uses only a very lightweight scrim. This adds strength and durability that is sought by machine workers yet allows softness and ease of stitch that everyone appreciates. Our scrim does not create heavy, dense and stiff results.  When quilting your project, there is no right or wrong side of the batting to have face up during stitching.

What is needle punching?

Cotton quilt batting in today’s marketplace is the most commonly known needle punched product. This process bonds together fibers of any type by ‘carding’ or repeatedly punching the fibers with barbed needles. The more a fiber is needled, the denser & stronger it becomes. No chemicals are needed when using this method of bonding fibers. Pellon® Cotton Battings are offered in both White and Natural, needle punched as well as needled onto scrim binder.

What should I use to stabilize my t-shirt quilt?

There are several different products which will work well in your T-Shirt Quilts.  Like many other questions, there is more than one answer to this one.  We suggest you check out one of our Tuesday Tips on our Blog here.

What is thermal bonding?

Thermal bonding is a process in which fibers are tossed in a large container and mixed with a very small percentage of ‘low-melt’ polyester. Once this is tumbled together, it is laid out onto a conveyor belt and passed through an oven. The poly fibers melt, surrounding the wool or polyester fibers. This is then passed through heated rollers that seal and compress the fibers to the desired height. The majority of ‘low-melt’ polyester is dissipated in the process leaving a small amount remaining. Thermal bonding provides a very soft and airy result

What is the best batting for machine quilters?

Pellon® Natural Blend 80/20 Batting with scrim binder is a favorite with all machine quilters whether using a home sewing machine or a long arm machine. The scrim binder holds together the soft fibers with a gentle strength preventing distortion. 100% Wool batting is another favorite as it is extremely soft and has wonderful drape.

What is the warmest batting?

Knowing the characteristics of certain fibers may help you come to your own conclusion. Polyester does not allow air to pass through which traps body heat inside, making for a very warm quilt. 100% Wool is a natural fiber and a natural insulator making it very warm and ideal for cold temperatures but is much more costly than polyester. A quilt made with 80/20 blend has 80% cotton and 20% polyester which offers good warmth retention and is substantial in weight without being stiff and heavy. If you live in an extremely cold climate, the answer may be to use more than one quilt as needed.

Interfacing Questions


	

Which side of product is fusible?

Most of our products have either a dot adhesive or a spray adhesive.  The dot adhesive is on the rough side, where you can usually see the dot.  The spray adhesive is the shiny side.  When in doubt, take a small sample and test it covering both sides with a paper towel or fabric so you can insure that you do not make any fusing mistakes.

How do I remove fusible web adhesive from irons, crafting tools, or fabric?

Pellon® Fusible Webs are intended to be permanent and there is no guarantee it will be able to be removed from your fabric or ironing board cover. However, if the adhesive is not too deeply embedded into the fibers, you may be able to remove most, if not all, from your fabric. Here are some tips that have worked for us:

  • To remove the appliqué; heat it up with your iron without pressing. While it is still warm and being careful as the appliqué will be hot, gently remove the appliqué.
  • There is a product on the market called Carbona® for Glue and Adhesives. This is a spot remover that can be found in most supermarkets in the laundry aisle. Follow the directions on the bottle, being careful to pre-test first for colorfastness, etc. This product will cause the adhesive to “gum” up and then it can be removed.

This is sold in a tube and you can find it in most notions areas of your local fabric department. This works quite well in getting adhesive residue off your iron. We would suggest that if you use a lot of fusibles, that you purchase an Teflon® sole plate for the bottom of your iron such as Iron-Safe® which can also be purchased in your local fabric department. Adhesives wipe quickly and cleanly off your iron with this protector.

Do I need to pre-shrink interfacing?

Generally the answer is no.  While we do suggest pre-washing or pre-steaming your fabric to remove any shrinkage or finish that might interfere with the fusing process, there are only a few interfacings that need to be pre-shrunk.  That would be listed on the interleaf (instructions).  For example, we recommend pre-shrinking our SF101 Shape-Flex® Cotton Fusible.  To pre-shrink this and any other fusibles, fill a sink with warm water.  Place interfacing in water for about ten minutes.   Do not put in washer or dryer by itself or you may loosen the adhesive.  Gentle squeeze out excess water and allow to dry.

Can I use a handheld steamer to fuse my interfacing?

No, you need to use a standard household iron or steam press if you can adjust the heat, time and pressure.  Keep in mind that with most fusibles, in order to get a full, permanent bond you need four things – heat, steam, time and pressure.  If you are missing any of these, you may not get the bond you expect.  Always follow the instructions that are included with your product purchase.

How do I remove paper backing from paper-backed fusible webs?

Start by peeling from corner or score the backing at narrow point from one side to the other of the appliqué.  Bend at this point to start the release process.

What do I do if my wash-away stabilizer does not completely dissolve?

We would recommend increasing the water temperature. The product should dissolve in any temperature water, but if you’re having troubles, warm-hot water might be best. Lightly agitate the project and brush along the back where the product is adhered with your fingers.

Can I sew through your fusibles; will it gum up my needle?

Yes, all Pellon® products are sewing needle friendly.  We recommend using a ball point needle.   If you run into a little stickiness, we suggest you place a drop of Sewers Aid® on your needle.  It works wonders!

Are wider widths of interfacing available?

Yes, some of our most popular products are available in 60″ on Overstock.com.

What is a press cloth?

A press cloth is a lightweight fabric (usually cotton or a cotton blend) that you use with most fusibles for several reasons.  First, it protects your iron from getting any adhesive on it.  Second, when fusing with steam, it helps insure that you are getting enough.  Plus, as an extra bonus, it helps determine if your iron is hot enough.  When you pick up your iron and move it to the next location, the spot you left should be almost dry.

How do I use Tru-Grid™?

When using a pattern, start by printing the project pdf for your reference. Copy the design from the smaller grid to the larger grid by filling in each square in the grid in the same way as the original. Don’t try to sketch the entire pattern at one time. Instead, look for the key points. It may be necessary to count squares in each grid to see where to begin, but it is not difficult to do. Use a pencil so that you can erase, if necessary. When you are satisfied with your drawing, go over the lines to darken them. If you are scaling up your own design, you’ll first need to draw a scaled grid on your original design for a reference in creating the Tru-Grid™ pattern.

What is the difference between the knit interfacings?

The 180 Knit-N-Stable™ is a circular weave and stretches in all directions. The 150 Easy-Knit™ is a tricot weave with cross stretch and little stretch up and down.
