Project Description

What are you most proud of? I'm using a soldering iron to create fabric collages. This piece used scraps of more than 20 different fabrics. What advice would you give someone starting this project? You'd need a professional fine-tipped soldering iron in order to get the details.

What you will need

  • Synthetic fabrics

Q&A with Playing Hooky

Absolutely gorgeous! Have never seen soldered fabric, would really be interested in how this is done.
Playing Hooky answered:
I found a book by a British author at JoAnn's a few years ago: Fusing Fabric: Creative Cutting, Bonding and Mark-Making with the Soldering Iron. I work on it outdoors in the summer to deal with ventilation, but find it much easier than sewing otherwise.
