In the Frame

Vintage-Patch Iron on Fabric Frame Trims for cardmaking and needlecrafts  smallThese nifty fabric frames are a by-product of our  elbow patch manufacture, and we’ve found they work brilliantly as card toppers or for fabric crafts and applique. Simply remove backing paper, iron into position carefully (over stitch if a washable bond on fabric is needed)

Packs are Lucky Dip style, with a variety of designs and shapes (photos are a guide only, packs may differ in fabric designs). Aperture shapes are mainly oval, with occasional hearts or flowers in small and large sizes depending on stock.

Fabrics are a selection of mainly cotton print with some denim / faux suede fabrics dependent on what we have available.

Approximate sizing:

Large (fits A5 size card) 13cm x 17cm approx outside edge of rectangle. Oval aperture 15cm x 10.5cm, Heart aperture 14cm x 10cm

Small (15cm x 11cm) approx at outside edge of rectangle. Oval aperture 13cm x 9cm, Heart aperture 11cm x 8cm

We try to be generous with margins when cutting, but no guarantee on exact sizing or trim areas and widths can be given.

We have a Bond; the Results!

Vintage-Patch New adhesive test patchesYou may remember in February this year we started trialling a new adhesive for our patches which would provide a no sew option for those of you who don't enjoy stitching and embellishing your repairs.

Here's a link to the original post.

We applied various fabrics, including one denim, one woven cotton, and one cotton jersey t shirting to a scrap of old jeans material, and scheduled them for several machine washes.

We're thrilled to report that.the adhesive has stood up to laundering really well, and we're going to be using it in the manufacture of all our products once existing stocks have run out.

We're so impressed with the product that we're also going to be supplying the adhesive sheets on their own, so they can be used wiith your own fabrics to create motifs and carry out repairs.   Click here for more information on the Adhesive Sheets.
