Lay over Bo-Nash Ironing Sheet
and iron on hot to melt the powder

will bond together. Experiment using different amounts, to get a lacey or thick finish. Use with a medium iron for just a few
seconds. Check the fibers are bonded.
The amount of heat and length of heat applied will affect the color of the Angelina.
Too much heat will result in all the color
disappearing. Use as they are for fantasy
fabrics or cut into shapes. They do not
bond to anything else unless you use a
fusible. Fuse It the powdered fusible allows you to apply the fibers to your fabrics and because it stays soft and flexible,
there is no build up on your fabric. It is
washable on a delicate wash. The edges
will not fray. Angelina fibers can also be
used for your other embellishment projects on fabric, paper, tissue, and wood.
Use your imagination, the possibilities
are endless. If you find the fibers stick to
your iron, clean it with Bo-Nash Iron Clean
Cloths.

Surface Design & Embellishments
Using Bo-Nash Fuse It Powder
Bo-Nash Bonding Powder is a great
way to apply embellishments and ideal
for surface design. Use your imagination
and you can create your own masterpieces using your ‘stashes’, leftovers, foils,
tinsel, Angelina fibers, soy fibers, paper,
ribbons, etc.
The great thing is that there is no one
way. You can do it anyway you want.
The more abstract, sometimes is the
better. Experiment, play, and most of all,
have fun. YOU make the ordinary, extraordinary.

Fantasy Fabrics
Use base material as a ‘backdrop’ to
your art. Ideal materials; lame, or metallics, decide on a color scheme and put together bits of fabric, tinsel, threads, wool,
glitter, and whatever takes your fancy.
Sprinkle a layer of Bonding Powder over
area of base fabric and then arrange your
‘bits & pieces’ over the fabric area. Add
more powder. Cover with the Bo-Nash
Ironing Sheet and iron with hot iron. Lift
away ironing sheet very carefully (some
parts may stick). To capture your design
a layer of tulle or chiffon can be laid over
the top of your ‘bits & pieces’. This makes
it easier to free motion quilt or embroider
through your design.

Landscape Designs &
3-D Techniques
Decide on colors needed to make
design. Use backdrop fabric in the color
of your choice and chop up fabric into
small swatches or pieces of colors for
each area of design. Sprinkle powder
over area. Lay chopped pieces on top of

powder in whatever design you require.
Add a little more powder. Lay the BoNash Ironing Sheet over the area to fuse
and iron with hot iron. Remove ironing
sheet carefully. Free motion quilt through
design. You will not gum up needle.

Foiling

You can use stencils or work on abstract designs.
Stencils:
1. Lay down Stencil
2. Sprinkle powder over stencil area

5. Lay cellophane foil over melted
powder with color side up
6. Cover with Bo-Nash Ironing Sheet
and iron on medium heat over area
7. Gently remove sheet and cellophane and the metallic foil will stick
to the powder.

Soy fibers are a by-product of soybeans and tofu. The process is very fast
and easy to do. No pulling, tugging, or
rolling. Ultimate glue or Textile Medium
will fold the soy fibers together. Lay down
Bo-Nash Ironing Sheet to protect work sur-

face and have a non-stick surface to work
on. Lay soy fibers on top of the Bo-Nash
Ironing Sheet. Fluff out pieces by pulling
apart. Lay in different directions. Do as
many layers and colors as you wish to
make it as thick or as thin as you want.
Dribble Textile Meduim or glue along the
outside areas first then add some to the
middle section. Using another non-stick
sheet, cover the top, pat, and spread the
piqued into the fibers. (Using your hands
will cause it to stick and pull away) If you
have not used enough liquid it will not
stick together, but you can always add
more! Let it dry. After it is dry, remove from
the Bo-Nash Ironing Sheet. This can now
be used to do great embellishment projects. Use Fuse It, the powdered fusible to
apply to fabric, paper, cardboard, wood,
etc. Use your imagination to make the
most wonderful projects. Using the Bonding Powder allows the use without stiffness. It stays soft and pliable with the fabric, yet it allows for delicate washing. Use
the Bo-Nash ironing sheet to apply the soy
fiber felt so there is no damage and nothing sticks. If you find anything sticks to the
iron use the Bo-Nash Iron Cleaning Cloths
to remove any sticky residue.

Bo-Nash Fuse It Powder
Thank you for choosing The Bo-Nash
Fuse It Powder. To get the best results
from this product, please read the following
instructions.
Always test on a sample of the material first. Bo-Nash Fuse It Powder is suitable
for most fabrics. It is very quick and easy
to use. With Fuse It Powder you can turn
up hems, baste quilts, position or apply zippers, apply appliqués and motifs, invisibly
repair tears and cigarette burns to clothes
and upholstery. Bo-Nash Fuse It Powder is
strong enough for heavy canvas, denims,
tents, awnings and sails, but soft enough for
delicate silks and lace.
A DVD on all applications is available.

Always Remember
1) Test on a sample of similar material first.
2) Always use your iron on the hot setting
(cotton) and use without steam. Take care;
a hot iron can damage fabrics. When first
switching on the iron, allow time for the iron
to regulate to the proper temperature.
3) Use ONLY Bo-Nash Fiberglass Ironing
sheet on both sides of garment, if possible.
This will protect garment from the heat of
the iron, especially for delicate fabrics. Always clean the sheet before each use with
a wet or dry cloth.
4) Always blow away surface powder before applying heat.
5) Fuse It Powder can be washed, boiled,
or dry cleaned after bond has been allowed
to set fully- approximately 1 hour.
6) Amount of powder required depends on
thickness of fabric. The heavier the fabric,
the more powder and longer heat required
to make a suitable bond.

For Turning Up Hems
No need to pin, tack, or sew. No need
to double hem as Bo-Nash Fuse It Powder
stops fraying. Iron the hem to make a crease.
(Just fold over and apply heat.) Place Fiberglass Ironing sheet on work surface (use an
ironing board or protected table top), place
garment on top of Fiberglass Ironing sheet,
open the fold and sprinkle Fuse It Powder over the hem area. Use sparingly for
thin or delicate fabrics. Use more powder
for heavier fabrics. Cover with Fiberglass
Sheet; apply heat for a few seconds. The
amount of time depends on the thickness
of the fabric, test on sample of material first.
Turn garment over and iron the other side
of hem with Fiberglass Ironing sheet for a
few seconds. Now the hem is in place. Allow to cool.

Basting Zippers/Quilts
Always do one side of zipper first, then
the other. Place zipper on top of the Fiberglass Ironing sheet, moisten one side of
the zipper with water using a paint brush,
sprinkle that side of the zipper with Fuse It
Powder, lay edge of fabric over powdered
zipper edge (if you want concealed zipper,
cover half of the zipper as well), blow away
excessive powder off zipper teeth, cover
with Fiberglass Sheet and apply heat for a
few seconds to both sides of fabric being
bonded. Repeat process for the other side
of the zipper.
Quilt basting saves time, no pins required! Sprinkle sparingly over batting,
place fabric quilt back over the batting and
iron, using Fiberglass Ironing sheet. Repeat
process for the front of the quilt. Use the
Fuse It Powder for your quilt appliqué; for
any bits and pieces you want to keep stationary or for stacking. It is great for the

snippets technique and saves time and money when embellishing with laces and fragile
ribbons. Bo-Nash Fuse It Powder leaves the
fabric flat. It will not gum up a sewing needle
and stays soft and flexible. It is ideal for basting before sewing, either by machine or hand.
It is repositionable when used sparingly.

Applying Appliques, Motifs,
Lace & Ribbon
Using a wet paintbrush or spray bottle of
water, dampen the wrong side of the lace or
ribbon and sprinkle on the Fuse It Powder.
Shake off excess. The powder will cling to the
moisture and you are able to maneuver the
lace or ribbon onto the fabric. Hold lace or
ribbon in place and blow excess Fuse It
Powder from around the surrounding area.
Place the Fiberglass Ironing sheet over the
lace, ribbon or motif. Apply heat for a few
seconds; turn fabric over and apply heat tothe reverse side again with the Fiberglass
Ironing sheet. Using the Bo-Nash Fuse It
Powder is a fantastic way to apply motifs to
delicate fabrics so that no sewing marksshow. For fine or small areas, use a paint
brush damped in water to apply powder.
Remember you can sew through with
no problem. It does not harden or gum up
hand/machine needles. Perfect for delicate
lace. It stays soft. For badges, more heat will
be needed for longer because of the
thickness. For appliqué, pieces can be
prepared first, by making fused pieces.
Place appliqué face down(wrong side up)
on top of a Bo-Nash Fiberglass Sheet , sprinkle Powder over the pieces and cover with
another Fiberglass Sheet and iron. Remove
Fiberglass Sheet (make sure sheet is cleaned
before using again) The pieces are now fused
on the back(just like having fusible web applied) and can be reactivated by reapplying
heat once pieces are placed in position for the
design on the fabric.

Mending - Where No Fabric is Missing
(
I.E. Rips Or Tears)

Bo-Nash Fuse It Powder works on most fabrics to give an invisible repair. The end result
depends on the type of fabric; if it is a fabric
which will allow an invisible mend, it will do
so; if not, it will produce a neater and stronger repair than sewing could ever do! For
best results, work on the wrong side of the
garment for tears. On the wrong side (inside)
push back any loose threads of fiber, taking
care to place them back in the correct position, bringing the tear together completely. It
is important to note that the more time and
patience taken in this procedure, the better
the mend will look. Using the Fiberglass
Ironing sheet, sprinkle Fuse It Powder over
the tear area. Place a circular patch of fabric
(cotton works best) over the powdered tear,
brush away excess powder from around the
patch area if there is over-sprinkle. Cover
with Fiberglass Ironing sheet and apply heat
for a few seconds. Turn garment over. Make
sure Fiberglass Ironing sheet is clean of leftover powder (otherwise it will be transferred
to the front of the garment and may be visible); Place Fiberglass Ironing sheet over repair area on front of garment and apply heat
for a few seconds. As the patch is on the
wrong side of the garment, it should not be
seen. With lightweight colored fabrics, it is
better to patch with a piece of the similar or
same fabric. This can be cut from an area
where it will not be noticed, i.e. hem, seams.
Allow repair to set for 1 hour before wearing,
so that the fibers can bond together and cool
completely.

Moth & Burn Holes in Wool Blends
& Nap Fiber Fabrics Only
Cut away burnt edges from the holes. Cut
a small amount of fiber from seam or hem or
pull several threads from the fabric. Roll fiber

into a ball between your fingers. Using
scissors, cut fibers up as fine as possible,
almost fluff. The more time taken in preparation gives a better invisible mend. Put the
cut fibers into a small dish and mix with a
small amount of powder. Working on the
wrong side of the garment, use Fiberglass
Ironing sheet on both sides of the repair
when possible. Place sufficient amount of
fluff and powder mixture into the hole and
sprinkle extra powder over. Cover with
patch of fabric (cotton is best, cut into circle)
and cover with Fiberglass Ironing sheet. Apply heat for a few seconds, then turn onto
right side and apply heat for a few seconds
again. Leave for 1 HOUR for bond to set. All
repairs can be washed or dry-cleaned after
bond has fully set. The more textured the
fabric, the better the repair will blend into
the fabric.

Holes in Flat Fabric & Other
Fabric
Cut a clean hole and eliminate charred
or frayed edges. Cut an identical piece of
material, slightly larger than the hole, from a
concealed area of the garment (hem, waistband, etc). Take a paintbrush and moisten
the edges of hole with water on the wrong
side of fabric. Sprinkle the powder onto the
damped edge. The powder will cling to the
moisture. Place the damaged area of garment over the material patch, lining up the
pattern correctly. Blow away any excess
powder that may be showing. Apply heat
using the Fiberglass Ironing sheet to protect
garment. Turn over and heat again using Fiberglass Ironing sheet. Always remember
to blow away excess powder so it cannot
be transferred onto the right side of garment. For prints or designed fabrics, make
sure you match and align the print FIRST to
give a perfect match.

Upholstery, Quilts & Comforters
For any area where the wrong side
cannot be reached, this includes sleeve,
lapel, etc….where there is a double layer of
fabric. Work from right side only. On upholstery DO NOT USE ON OLEFIN OR SIMILAR
MATERIAL, that a hot iron can damage. Try
test on a sample or inconspicuous area first
on ALL FABRICS.
For a rip or tear where all fabric is left You
will need to make a fused patch first.
Sprinkle Bo-Nash Fuse It powder over
the patch , cover with the Fiberglass Sheet
and apply heat. Peel patch off sheet (remember to clean off any excess powder
residue before using again) You now have
a fused patch. Take the patch and put
through tear and rearrange fibers and fabric over the top (the more care taken in this
step, the better the finished repair.) Cover
with CLEAN Fiberglass Sheet and apply
heat to reactivate the fusing.
If a hole and fabric is missing,
You will need matching fabric for the
fused patch. Apply powder over just the
area that will be hidden under the original
fabric,make sure the area to show through
hole area does not have powder before
pushing through the hole, then match up
pattern, if any. Make sure all excess powder
is brushed away from front of the garment
or quilt before covering with Fiberglass Ironing sheet and applying the heat of an iron
for a few seconds. Time depends on fabric
thickness. Allow to fully bond before using.

Non-Stick Fiberglass
Ironing Sheet
Reusable. Non-stick. Transparent. Use
for appliqué & general purpose ironing
(starches, fusibles and interfacings) keeping
the iron clean. Use for craft projects. Glues,
paints, waxes peel easily away when dry or
cool. Clean by wiping with wet or dry cloth.
