Pellon Bag Making Goodies Giveaway!!

Pin It


How about we kick-off 2012 with a fantastic crafting giveaway?  Pellon, the maker of interfacing, batting & all the other "Magic In The Middle" materials, is featuring January as Bag Making Month on PellonProjects.com and to celebrate they have provided me with a super prize pack of their stabilizing products that are ideal for making bags.  Purses, totes, diaper bags, lunch sacks, any kind of bag you want to make, they have a product that helps make it marvelous.

Pellon

Here are a few examples of what you can do with Pellon items:

I used Décor Bond® in my Flaphappy backpack last fall.  This thin crisp fusible adds stability and support without extra weight.  Perfect for all the crazy (and heavy) things my little guy tosses in it.


To make this sturdy lunch tote, I used Peltex® I Ultra-Firm 1-Sided Fusible Stabilizer.  It's similar to the weight of cardboard so the bag really holds its boxy shape well. You can get my free pattern & tutorial for this bag on the PellonProjects.com site HERE.



And this drawstring bag is a new tutorial that is coming up here tomorrow.  It utilizes cotton Shape-Flex® to give slight firmness to light to medium weight fabrics without becoming crisp:


For the rest of the week I'll be sharing some new, easy bag tutorials (like the one pictured above) so you can see these products in action and be ready to make them yourself.

Another great sewing simplifier is their Tru-Grid® 100% polyester tracing cloth.  When I'm drafting up a new pattern of my own or don't want to deal with temperamental tissue paper patterns this is the stuff I use.  It's got a pre-printed 1” grid and big 45” wide size so it's great for creating, copying or scaling patterns.  Unlike paper no rips or tears!!


And if making bags isn't "your bag", these products have loads of other uses too.  Even if you have zero sewing skills, these products can be ironed onto fabric, cardboard or even wood, so the possibilities are endless.

~~~So are you ready for a chance to win?~~~

The giveaway winner will receive 2yds of each of the following products:


  1. SF101 Shape-Flex®.  100% cotton woven fusible interfacing.  20” wide.  
  2. 987F Pellon® Fusible Fleece.  100% polyester lightweight low-loft fusible fleece.  45” wide.  
  3. 71F Peltex® I Ultra-Firm 1-Sided Fusible.  100% polyester.  20” wide.  
  4. 809 Décor Bond®.  90% polyester/10% rayon fusible stabilizer.  45” wide.  
  5. 810 Tru-Grid®.  100% polyester tracing cloth with 1” grid.  45” wide.  
AND a box of 4 Odegon deodorizing patches!  

Want to keep a gym or laundry bag from being stinky?  Just iron or sew in one of these patches to keep odors neutralized.  Also great for clothing & entirely washable.  And I'll be sharing some other ideas for using these soon too!



This prize has a retail value of over $55!!  Holy mackerel is this a lot of crafting loot!
