Getting Creative with Kreinik Iron-On Thread
Check this out! Here is something a little different, Iron-On Thread by Kreinik.
You can’t sew with it, but you sure can embellish with it. This thread is an awesome option for a “fusible, no-glitter, no-mess embellishment”. You can use it on fabric, paper and card stock so it it is extremely versatile and the uses are endless. Think sewing, scrapbooking, card-making, quilting, etc.
It comes in a variety of colors either sold separately or in assortment packs.
I used it to make this personalized pillow. It added some nice sparkle and flair.
It was quite easy to use too. The directions that come with the recommend using a craft iron and placing the on your drawn design as you go using a teflon press cloth to prevent the thread from sticking to the iron. I applied this a bit differently since I didn’t have a craft iron, nor did I have a teflon press cloth. Here is what I did:
- I appliqued the letter “N” onto the fabric.
- Using some temporary adhesive, I stuck the iron-on thread around the letter working with 4-5″ of thread at a time.
- I used some kitchen parchment paper in place of the teflon press cloth and it worked like a charm.
- I used my regular iron on a cotton setting (without steam) to adhere the thread to the fabric.
This was super easy and fun. If you are looking for a n0-sew way to embellish your projects this is absolutely worth giving a try.
