I was pretty excited when I first heard about Lazy Girl Designs’ new line of Sew Lazy interfacing products. Easy names that fit the product. What a clever idea! Slicker is waiting and, as soon as the right project shows up, we’ll put it to the test. Stiff Stuff found its way into an ornament already, but it needs some tweeking – the ornament that is; the Stiff Stuff performed exactly as was hoped!
Sew Lazy Fusi-Bond Lite made its way into the first finished project.
Here the tree has been drawn on the smooth side of the interfacing and the interfacing has been fused to the fabric.
After cutting the tree, it was time to peel off the backing. It was a delight! Maybe I don’t do it correctly, but with other fusible I find that the paper tears and it’s necessary to keep scratching and pulling. With the Sew Lazy product, after scratching the surface with a pin to get a place to grab and start pulling, it all came off easily and in one piece! Pretty suprising considering all the curves and different parts to the design of the applique.
Every bit of the applique piece was covered in the fusible. It doesn’t make any difference and won’t show, but I loved how shiny and pretty it was.
The piece fused to the background fabric nicely, and sewing through the applique to add dimension went smoothly.
Overall I was tickled pink with the product and know that I will use it again and again.
Nice work, Lazy Girl Designs!
