Crazy Wool

Coats Crafts (vilene) produce this fantastic disolvable fabric called solufleece. A few Design Consultants and myself were lucky enough to be treated to a workshop on Tuesday this week to be shown how to use it.
Using spray glue we laid lengths of yarn out onto the fabric. Once we were happy with our designs we bonded another piece of solufleece to the top of the design and then using a sewing machine created a mesh design in stitching to trap the yarn fibres.
This is the magic bit.... once we were happy that we had trapped all yarn we plunged our pieces into cold water and 'hey presto' the solufleece disapeared!
I decided to bond my piece to a background fabric, but the other girls created lovely see through pieces.
