Yep, you read that right;). Flex-Foam™ 1-Sided and 2-Sided Fusible Interfacing is coming! If you love our Flex-Foam Sew-in, we’re pretty sure you’ll be head over heels for the fusibles.
Our Flex-Foam has been on the market as a sew-in since earlier this year. It’s quickly become a go-to favorite for projects like handbags, storage totes, and accessories. We loved the sew-in so much that we decided to take it a step further and add the fusibles! The same fabulous product with a handful of different application options — what could be better?
Here are the details:
FF78F1 – Flex-Foam 1-Sided Fusible, 20″ x 10 yard board
FF78F1R – Flex-Foam 1-Sided Fusible, 60″ x 10 yard roll
FF79F2 – Flex-Foam 2-Sided Fusible, 20″ x 10 yard board
FF79F2R – Flex-Foam 2-Sided Fusible, 60″ x 10 yard roll
Both the 1-Sided & the 2-Sided will be available via Hancockfabrics.com starting Monday, September 14. The 1-Sided will also be available in all Hancock stores — the 2-Sided in select Hancock stores.
Product will be available via Joann.com & our wholesale distributors (if you are a business and need a distributor directory, please contact us) on September 15 and via Overstock.com & Amazon.com shortly thereafter. Are you excited yet??
A few of our beloved designers had a chance to test out some advance samples and here is what they have to say:
“I LOVE the one sided fusible flex foam! It blows everyone else’s product away. The adhesive on the product is fantastic and sticks so well throughout the construction process. I even had an oops where I had to pull off a part of the fabric to fix something else and the foam re-stuck like it was brand new. I am also really impressed with the lack of crinkle, even after turning a bag to finish it. You all have done a great job with this product.” – Kay Whitt, Sew Serendipity
“I’m very excited for your launch of the fusible Flex Foam! I absolutely LOVE the fusible!” – Nancy Spaulding, Baby Rozen Designs
“I did my ‘balling it up and ironing it flat’ test and it irons flat again like a dream! Looks great! It also fuses really fast too. This will be great to make bags with!!” – Sara Lawson, Sew Sweetness
“I just used the fusible FF for the first time, and I am in LOVE!!!“ – Bree Wernimont, My Crafty Crap
“The best part is that it fuses faster than Shape-flex (no, really, it does). A few seconds and bam, fused. The fusible Flex-Foam is now my favorite fusible interfacing. I am sure you will love it as much as I do.” – Alicia Miller, Swoon Sewing Patterns

I have some awesome tote bag patterns that would work well with the two-sided foam!
I’m planning on making some handbags for Christmas gifts and I’d love using the FF for them.
I would make Amy Butler’s Weekender Bag. If I give up on that, I would make some storage containers for my daughter’s dorm room! Thanks for the wonderful giveaway.
This would be great for baskets that you want to stand up on their own.
I love making purses and pouches for gifts, and I’ve used two layers of fusible fleece up to now. But fusible flex foam sounds fantastic! It will add more body to the purses. Thanks for the chance to win, and for the great blog tour!
For a minute I was not exactly sure how I might use Fusible Flex-Foam, but placemats seem like an excellent idea!!!!!
I’d make some fabric baskets. Looks like a great product.
Ooooh!!! would make a great Tote for hauling my Projects everywhere I go! lol Plus a Zippy Pouch to stick scissors, threads etc in my new tote! Thanks so much for chance to win your Give-a-way!!! This stuff sounds Amazing!!
I would use it make a knitting bag and a laptop computer bag. The one I use for carrying my work computer is so dull.
The first thing that came to mind was of course a purse or handbag. But, I am thinking that this product is so versatile that there will be many times it could be used. Placemats, box headers for curtains, hats, and lightweight quilted rugs or dog beds come to mind. The more I think about it, the more décor items come to mind. Thank you for thinking of us when you make a great product.
I would try the one-hour basket. I wonder if it will be easy to turn the basket the right side out through the hole in the lining with the fusible flex foam. I always worry about the whole bag/basket falling apart trying to turn the bag.
I would use fusible foam for tote bags, placemats, storage boxes and I can imagine some wonderful possibilities in constructing some toys like busy books and doll furnishings. Oh fun. Can’t wait to try this product.
The list is endless, bags,totes,pouches, pencil boxes, flower apppliques, carttoon appliques, apliques on my dresses , bags and the list goes on and on.
justwaiting for it to be available. thankyou
Would love test this product out by making a zipper pouch
Thank you Pellon for creating Fusible Flex-Foam! I just bought the 2 sided today (9/10/15) and literally am pressing it to my tote bag that I just cut. I love that it didn’t crinkle! Maybe it’s me not fusing correctly w/other products but this FLex Foam is a beauty!!!
So I’m sewing my tote now, and am using i the “Gingham Tote” from Anna Graham of Noodle-head.com.
Thank you so much for sharing and I’d love to try 1 yard of the one sided and the Sew-In.
I’d make a new shopping tote similar to what your posted! Love this! Thansk for sharing!
I can’t wait to try this! I really want to use some in bags and especially look forward to trying a pouch and maybe even a coffee sleeve with it.

I promised our granddaughter a new tote bag, will be using fusible foam in it.
I promised our Granddaughter a new bag, will be using fusible foam on hers.
I like that it is fusible. I make bags of all sizes, and especially for travel. I want to make a carry on duffle, and this product would be perfect for such a project. I made one with batting, and though useable, it didn’t look as nice as if I had used a better support. And—the scraps make great little zipper bags, and document (passport) holders. I think for Christmas it would make really nice stockings as well. Too many ways to use it. Gotta have this product.
I would make a bag and and iPad case. It’s perfect for these projects.
I would make a nice tote that stands on its own.
I would love to make a weekender-type duffle bag to travel with. Can’t wait to try the fusible! Many thanks!
There are a few bag patterns I have been wanting to try and the Flex-Foam would be great for that!
I would make baby accessories since I’m soon to be expecting my second child. A diaper changing pad would be perfect for this along with stroller straps and a car seat cushion or headrests
Either one I will it to make a nice bag.
I would definitely make tote bags and purses with it. Thanks!
A gym bag I need a new one with more room
Certainly I would make a bag and a basket, and zippy pouches with what ever is left over. Can’t wait to try this. Thanks for the chance to win some!!
with just one yard of either or both pellon, I would make padded high chair pads and padded umbrella stroller pads. There’s enough in one yard for both. My granddaughter needs comfort.
I would make a tote bag or a fabric bucket.
I can’t wait to use Flex-Foam in my next bag project.!
I’ve been planning to make the Weekender bag for awhile now, I think I’m glad I waited so I can try out this new product from Pellon!
I’ve sewn bags for one of my daughters who was a fashionista; now I have granddaughters who getting old enough to appreciate the unique style the Oma made bags have 🙂 I would be sewing for them.

I have made bags for everyone but me. I have 2 bags I want to make and this would be wonderful and easier than other things I have used.
I am planning to use it to make a sewing machine cover.. And then a cover for my longarm. I like the idea of flip and fold quilting as I go and creating a cover that is decorative and holds its shape!

There is some fabric I have been saving for totes and bags, I would enjoy trying the Fusible Flex Foam on them…thanks!
I would make placemats and table runners.
I’d love to try them both! I can see their advantages in different types of projects! Thanks to the creative minds of Flex Foam!!!!! Such geniuses 🙂
I love Pellon products and can hardly wait to try it on a backpack purse pattern I have. Also, I love the Ethel bag, and would love to use the 1-sided fusible on it. Thanks for the opportunity to win. I can see so many projects for it, a sewing machine cover, etc. ohhhhhh, pick me, peck me, please.

I think I would use it for a tote bag.

I love making all kinds of bags & purses and i cant wait to try out the new fusibles on my next one.
Definitely bags, baby’s items and wall-hanging art.
I am so anxious to try this product, both the one sided and the 2 sided.I have used several other products and haven’t found just the “right” one that is easy to work with. I have used many Pellon products both in apparel and crafting and they are far superior to anything else on the market.
Thank you for the generous give-away! I would make a couple of purses and totes with it.
Bags, bags, and more bags.
I would proably do bags for me and gifts for others
I need a new bag, and would love to try this.
I’ve been wanting to make a duffle bag.
I would make a handbag to try it.
Place mats for my kitchen island seating. I need to get rid of the scratched up cork-backed mats.
Oh my gosh…where do I begin??? What would I use the new Pellon foam for?
I’d start by making Bendy bags for my daughter’s volleyball team. Girls have lots of stuff to bring to tournaments, & can always use zippered pouches. My daughters (2) each need a duffle bag for overnight trips…thinking Amy Butler’s pattern. My husband can use some zippered pouches for cell phone stuff – cables, electric cubes, & the like. & I can definitely use a new zippered pouch for my stuff, & a new tote for travel. I could go on. But at least that’s a start!
I would definitely make bags! One of the previous comments was about placemats though, and I’d probably make those, too!!
I would use the Flex Foam for the sides of a large round toy container for my grandchildren! I would also love to use it on bags, bags, and more bags!!!
I would love to try the new fusible for a new purse.
I love this for a lot of things I made a large tote using a similar product. It is so nice and i did ask JA if they had any was told they may be gettign it in by Pellon. YAY!!! I am sew excited to see them carry it w
but more so I am excited that you Pellon Products will be making and producing it. thanks
I have bags in mind for holiday gifts this year and this would be great.
No doubt, I would be making an awesome bag with it!
I would make the “Improv Tote” which is a quilt-as-you-go bag using Flex Foam. The tutorial is from Missouri Star Quilt Co.
Bags! Like the Ethel by Swoon. ❤ Thanks for the chance!
I have SO many bags I’d like to make for friends and relatives — everyone can always use a new bag. This fusible Flex-Foam sounds like it will make the bags so much easier to complete!
I’d make some lots of bags. 🙂
Looking forward to trying this new project for handbag construction!
I guess if I was making a large tote or purse. Maybe a gift for a friend..
Bags, for sure. If Sara Lawson recommends it (I so admire her bags!) it’s got to be good!
This would be great to use for place mats! There are also some circular boxes that this would work in beautifully too.
I would make tote bags for friends for our quilt show trips this fall. If I had any left over, I’d make little zip bags to match. Thanks for the chance to win !
I would use it to make tote bags for the teachers at school!
I think this would be great under split applique designs or applique designs like footballs, basketballs or volleyballs ( partial to these sports as they are my grandkids sports) or under any applique design to give it a 3D effect. I need to make a sewing machine cover for my D1 and either one would be great to give it just the right amount of stiffness.
Bags, and the inserts for my store-bought soft-sided bags!
I would use it to make insulated window covers for my camper. If I attach it to Reflectix it will be useful both winter and summer.
Have some baskets I want to try sounds like this is want I need to use.
I would love to try this in my larger hand bags! I love the structure that the sew in provides, and using the fusible will mean that I don’t have to buy fusible web to attach the pieces! There’s nothing like foam to give bags a firm shape without weighing them down!
Can’t hardy wait to use this new produce. I want a new purse and want to try this Thanks
This sounds like the perfect product to make covers for my 3 sewing machines and for the longarm. The iron on should give just the right body to keep them looking good for years.
I will be making purse’s and tote bags…AND a broach as this will give it great dimension with the different layers.
I would really like to try the double-sided Flex-foam for a new canvas bag I want to make!
I too would make a purse I like to machine embroider on quilted fabric for bags and purses and I think this would be just the thing for them.
I think I would finally try making a bag. They look so cute but it always seemed like a hassle.
I’ve been making a lot of purses and zip bags for gifts recently and this would be great to try out as I create more of them!! Thanks for the sweet giveaway :o)
I would make bags, bags, and more bags!!! As a bag pattern tester for a few bag designers, I always need interfacing and stabilizers and would love to try new kinds to see how well they work. The fact that it’s fusible is a huge plus!!!
My first thought is to use it for bags, but I am certain other uses will come to mind rapidly!
I need a new tote bag that can “stand up” to all of my daily tasks.
This is the first I’ve heard of this product. Will be anxious to try it compared to others for making purses
I would sure like to try this product. Can’t wait for the stores to get it. Also, would love to win some to make a tot bag and see how I like it. Need to make several for Christmas presents.
I want to make Stella by Swoon Sewing Patterns with it!
I’m making another of Joanna Figueroa’s bags with 6 fat quarters. They are really cute! Can hardly wait to use the new product.
Tote bags for my sewing projects, for sure!

I just bought some. I’m making a tote bag. I love it

I would use it for a tote bag I have my eye on making !!
I would make bags, of course. 🙂 I am getting ready to make 2 wide mouth zipper bags and Jen Fox’s Zippy Bag in the next couple of weeks. Sounds like the perfect time to try out the new fusible product!
