Friends, I'm in trouble. I've used Heat and Bond Lite for years without any difficulties. But the last two times I've tried to use it, I've run into terrible problems
The first time I had applied the film to the back of the fabric, cut out the design, and when I tried to peel the film off, it wouldn't come off. It ruined the piece of fabric. Thinking that perhaps there was sizing on the fabric that was interfering with the process, I washed everything. I haven't tried again but I really want to. Soon.
Today I tried to bond a design using some actual genuine Liberty of London scraps. And the same blasted thing happened! The paper will not peel off and leave the stickum on the design. The stickum peels right off with the paper! Obviously I don't want to proceed any further with this without some help -- that Liberty is too precious.
Any ideas on what the problem might be? Anyone else ever have this happen? What did you do to remedy it? I JUST bought it a couple of weeks ago at the grand opening of the new Joann's near us. I wonder if they moved old stale stuff to the new store?
Here's a picture of a quilt I made eight years ago using blocks from a swap. We used only blue, gray and purple Civil War fabrics. I thought it turned out nicely and really appreciated the variety of baskets that the swappers produced.
I gave it to someone who likes to make actual baskets.
