Fusible Flex-Foam™!

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.

FusibleFlexFoam-EBlast

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

Hancock Logo with H

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??

Ethel, A Swoon Sewing Pattern by Alicia Miller — Uses FF78F1 Flex Foam 1-Sided Fusible

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 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.

  2. Pam says:

    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!

  3. Lori Morton says:

    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!!

  4. Sandy says:

    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.

  5. Yan says:

    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.

  6. robynsewsthisandthat says:

    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.

  7. tasneem says:

    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

  8. diane beavers says:

    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.

  9. allisonsews says:

    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.

  10. Alma Lou Annab says:

    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.

  11. Catrina says:

    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

  12. Jacklynn Grimm says:

    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!!

  13. Glenda Spradling says:

    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.

  14. Mickey Louth says:

    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.

  15. Annette says:

    I want to make a set of carrying cases to take my rulers, mats and accessories to retreat and classes. Fusible flex foam by Pellon would be the perfect stabilizer and protection for these projects!
    Thank you Pellon!

  16. M. Mercado says:

    I will make a clam shell style satchel for field sketching! This material sound like the right firmness/lightness for what I have in mind.

  17. Susan says:

    I have been wanting to make my sister-in-law and my niece a purse, and this sounds like just the product I need! Thanks sew much for this opportunity.

  18. Deborah Reiske says:

    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.

  19. Jane says:

    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!

  20. Susan says:

    Yesterday, while sitting with my sewing friends, we discussed what would be good good for making a more sturdy tote bag! Ta da- this might be just what we need!

  21. Karen harrison says:

    My daughter-in-law is a teacher. I make her big totes to carry all her teacher stuff, water bottle, and lunch. She gets lots of comments. This new product will help the bag stand up in its own. Can’t wait.

  22. darlene macdonald says:

    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 🙂

  23. Betty Harden says:

    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.

  24. Linda Veach says:

    I would make a Ravens diaper bag for my daughter-in-law. Then, I’d make tote bags, beach bags… This will make my work so much quicker and neater!

  25. Carol Keller says:

    I would make a personal style laptop bag for work without having to pay a hundred dollars for a retail one. One that is sized for my laptop with the pockets I need for accessories. And it will have an adjustable strap to be carried multiple ways.

  26. Lucy Garvin says:

    Definitely would use this to create a bag (when will it be released in Canada?) but I’d also try it out with my stitched art dolls. Wonder how it works with twin needle?

  27. Janey Cook says:

    I have 7 daughter-in-laws and 5 granddaughters I would love to make bags and totes for their special occasions. Looking forward to the newest product.

  28. Kathleen Dalecio says:

    I would love to try this Fusible Flex-Foam in iPad cases for my husband, my sister and her son who’s in the Air Force overseas!
    Thanks for the real-life review and the giveaway opportunity!

  29. Louise Hooyer says:

    I would try out the two sided and see how it maked 3-dimesional appliques for a baby quilt. I’ve got a new grandbaby coming!

  30. Kathleen says:

    I have a new weekender tote pattern I think this new product would be great for. Would love to win this prize and then share with my friends how it works.

  31. Karon J. says:

    I make art quilts. Having a double sided fusible flex foam product would give my projects ompf! I look forward to trying it out.

  32. Sharon Lichter says:

    I am so thrilled that the fusible is finally here. I love making bags and this product is the perfect interfacing. The bags stand up like they are supposed to.

  33. Marjorie Cunningham says:

    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.

  34. Cynthia A. says:

    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!

  35. Nancy Lee says:

    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!!!

  36. Patricia Hall says:

    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
    Patty

  37. Jo Lanfear says:

    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!

  38. Aggiequilter says:

    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 !

  39. Gail says:

    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.

  40. Nel Thomas says:

    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.

  41. Rachel says:

    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!

  42. Lynne Williams says:

    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.
    Lynne Williams–KS

  43. Robyn Morris says:

    I will be making purse’s and tote bags…AND a broach as this will give it great dimension with the different layers.

  44. snausages22 says:

    Hi there,
    I would really like to try the double-sided Flex-foam for a new canvas bag I want to make!
    Thanks!
    Quilty Huggs,
    Jacqueline

  45. Kathy Kauth says:

    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.

  46. Terry says:

    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)

  47. Daryl says:

    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!!!

  48. Virginia says:

    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.

  49. Estie says:

    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.

  50. Janie says:

    I would use it for constructing totes, and purses. It looks as if it holds the shape of things great. Thank you for the inspiration, and the tour.

  51. Amy M says:

    I will make storage containers for my sewing room. Looks like it would really improve the structure in those types of containers.

  52. Karen Seitz says:

    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!
