Re: Backing Fabric....

Hi Marilyn-
I have used the fusible web that is paper backed and it has worked fine.
Follow directions well to get a decent bond though.  It really expands the
possibilities.....sky is the limit.  I've never chosen a very bulky fabric
but it has worked well with raw silk, cotton batiks, etc.

Good luck,
