Hi wyo_rose! I have a question about heavy weight Pellon. Even though it is heavy weight, is it necessary to sandwich it with other material via fusing it together? Does fusing work out even when your beading is complete? I am working on completing my 2nd legging (one small corner left to go) & need to sandwich for stiffness. Thanks in advance for your help.

Well, I've seen heavyweight Pellon, and I've seen heavyweight STIFF Pellon, which I don't think is necessary to sandwich.

Some of the things I've been beading lately have just had the top part of the sandwich - the paper with the design on it basted to the Pellon and it works just fine. My favorite way to bead is with a complete sandwich tho, but not fused, but basted together.

And yes, you can fuse an interfacing to completed beadwork. A few times, I have fused WonderUnder to the wrong side of cotton material for lining and then fused that to the backside of the beadwork. Works fine and dandy.

You could also fuse some to just use as a stiffener too.

Hope my reply makes sense.

i ended up going to Hobby Lobby yesterday, to get more Pellon. What I bought was something like Pellon (interfacing, with double fusible sides)You have to put a pressing cloth or parchment paper down on your ironing board & have your fusing material cut a little larger. What I like is that it works with paper as well. I can put the graphed design for my belt on the interfacing.

Now, what do you do when you've done lazystitch beading on Pellon & after a while, the beading is a little loose, even though the stiching is intact? I haven't backed this beadwork yet.

Man, I wish I had read about that double fusing before I fused a piece of beadwork to my IRONING BOARD COVER. I tried steaming it off and tried peeling it off and NO WAY would it come off. The pellon I had must have had extra heavy duty glue on it. I ended up having to replace the cover.

The beadwork, I salvaged by cutting it out and then removing the fuzzy backing of the cover and then just sewed it into place. It is still holding...but if I look just right, I can see a tiny bit of blue stripe from the cover. sigh!!!

When I made my one little beaded piece long time ago I used soft leather for the backing and got it in a store in Germany for household cleaning items - some people use leather cloth for window cleaning in Germany. And it's a large piece of leather. What it looks like, here's a link
