Has anyone tried Pellon Clear Fuse?
I bought some last year and just got around to trying it. It’s a lot like paper backed fusible web, except the backing is clear.
I’m not sure if I like it or not. I think I need to give it more of a trial. I learned fast that you have to mark on it with Sharpie or something similar. Pencil didn’t work, and I was concerned that ink pen might end up where I didn’t want it.
I can see the beauty of using it to fussy cut your fused pieces. It’s not something I do regularly, but other quilters might.
There’s also a bit of a trick to it. You have to melt the fusible side into the fabric really well, or the backing doesn’t come off. I found pressing from the fabric side rather than the fusible side worked best. Can you see where I mangled the edge of one of the circles trying to get the backing off?
I’m using the Clear Fuse to appliqué on the curved piecing background. I plan to stick with it through the entire project top give it a fair test. If you’ve ever used it, I’d love to hear your opinion.
