Angelina Fiber Play

Played for a few hours yesterday with Angelina fibers, polyester fibers that can heat bond to themselves producing a sheet of polyester film, also called fantasy film by some. After perusing the ye olde Internet for a while I had come across a product called BoNash bonding power (aka 007), basically fusing medium in a powder form. The nifty thing is you can sprinkle your Angelina pieces with it and then bond them to fabric, netting etc. Here are the basic ingredients of yesterdays work....


Angelina fibers in assorted colors, some are not heat fusible and therefore must be sandwiched between the heat fusible variety, iron, Teflon sheet, and the 007 and a variety of sequins, decorative fibers and fabric. You can embed flat things in the Angelina, hence the sequins and decorative fibers.

Sheets with inclusions and bonded to fabric or netting....

Sheets not bonded to fabric....

Bonded to some black spider web netting, with sequin inclusions.....

You can stamp the fibers by placing the loose strands on a inked rubber stamp, Teflon sheet over that and then iron.

These samples will be cut into decorative shapes, edging and embellishments for other projects. 

Messed around in the garden this morning, finally got the beans planted and erected the netting over the bed to keep the birds from plucking them from the ground as soon as they come up. The rhubarb is a happy camper right now, probably all of the rain....


And of course Dana wants everyone to know that It's Good To Be A Spoiled Princess.
