Since I have been working a lot with scraps lately, I thought I would show you a new product I am experimenting with. It is a fusible tape used to join your scraps of batting together to make a quilt size batt. I accumulate a lot of batting scraps and many of them I use up for miniature quilts. But I still have way more batting scraps than my minis will ever use up. I always say "You paid for the whole piece (of fabric or batting) so why not use the whole piece"?!
In the past I have hand stitched and/or machine zigzagged batting scraps together and have not been happy with either the look of it, or the waste of time working on batting prep.
This new product is called "Heat Press Batting Together". You can watch the video of how to use it at their website - click here. No instructions come with the little package, so the video was helpful. The little piece of plastic around the tape was annoying to remove...you have to cut it off (don't spend precious minutes looking for the end to peel it off like I did!) but be careful not to cut into the tape!
This product is just like having strips of fusible interfacing all perfectly cut for you. It worked great and I have constructed 2 baby quilt sized batts from small bits. Next I'm going to try using larger chunks to construct a twin size batt and see how that works out.
