Hi All,

A friend of mine has just asked if I know of any interfacing that fuses two layers of material together.  I know that vilene/wundaweb does one in long strips for hemming, but is there any in sheet form?  It doesn't need to be a particularly strong or long lasting bond, she just wants to see if there is an alternative to tacking.

Thanks

Heather.

There are a lot of products to consider:

  Wonder Under is fusible on both sides,  is intended for permanent fusing. 
 
  Wonder Tape is made for temporary hold - it washes away.  It's also widely used for papercrafts.

  Steam-A-Seam is also permanent, comes in strips for hems, etc.

  Sulky makesTemporary Spray Adhesive

  I've seen a fabric adhesive stick that looks like a glue stick.  In fact glue stick is okay if you just want to stop things from slipping around.  It washes out. 

Martha Pullen has a whole page of these products:

And if you go to any fabric store, you'll find some of them.  Look at the fusibles sold by the yard and at the notions wall, especially in the quilting notions section.

Wunder Under, Stitch Witchery, and Heat and Bond all come in sheets.  I use Heat and Bond, and for a permanent hold you must use the Ultra stuff.

I just found some double sided fusible interfacing here: http://www.ctpub.com/showproducts.cfm?Step=1&CrossCatID=8

I hope that helps.

Have you used Fast2Fuse yet?   (Note to others, Bobolots' link connected to a description of Fast2Fuse.)  I love this stuff!  It's very thick.  I use it to make fabric bowls like these
and this one
 
and it gives a lot of shape to purses.  

There are some other sites where you can buy it by the yard without getting a full bolt.  And sometimes the fabric stores carry this or Peltex - which is very similar.  (Timtex is the same thing, but is not fusible.)  
    www.timtexstore.com
    http://www.fabricdepot.com/product.aspx?ItemKey=7777
    http://softexpressions.com/software/notions/Fast2Fuse.php
             . . .  and plenty more.
