I've completed the embroidery on 2 large pieces of fabric; one of which is shown is the picture. For this pattern, I'm using PerfectFuse LIGHT as my interfacing which also shows in the picture.
I don't remember if I've mentioned it, but I've been looking around the Internet for a steam press for block fusing. I finally found what I was looking for at a price I felt I could afford without saying ouch! LOL. I put this new
toy tool to use this weekend to fuse these large pieces. Wow! I love this thing! I really like my Reliable Iron so I started looking at Reliables other products. I found they produce 2 steam presses; the Empressa S330 and the S550. The difference between the two is size. The S330 is 25"X10" and the S550 is 34"X11". I started looking around on Ebay and found a company that sells factory reconditioned 550's with a one year warranty (same as a brand new 550) for half the MSRP. Yes...half the price!!! So I purchased the S550. It's a great machine. Love it, love it, love it. LOL.
Here's a pic of my new baby!
And this shows how large the pressing surface is.
Pretty cool, eh? I have constructed both pocket welts and cut out the front pieces from the embroidered fabric I created. Now I'm off to sew.
