Thanks for popping in.
It’s been an elf of a day ’ere!
Dark when you go to work – dark when you get home. Honestly. Next Friday’s the shortest day of the year – and we are definitely headed in its direction !!
So I came upstairs to blog, and our little elf caught my eye again. He needs a little bling, don’t you agree?
Then it occurred to me – Fusible Fibre. Absolutely spot on for this little fella !!
We’ve got a great little kit and a load of different coloured fibre (and film), so I called up one of the head elves at work -Little Steve (he’s not little at all! He’s just not as big as Big Steve!!), and got him to sprinkle a little magic over the prices on the website.
While he’s doing that, let’s have a play… there’s a Megamount in the kit, so stick Elvis to the mount. Front or back – you pick!
Ink up the stamp with Archival Black, place enough fibre directly on the stamp to cover it, cover the fibre with baking parchment,
then iron with a hot iron, until you see Elvis peeping through the parchment.
While the fibre’s still hot, it is mallible. Use a No.6 ball tool to push the fibre into the stamp create a depth.
When you peel the fibre off the stamp, look! Magic! And the hat is 3-D. See?
Cut him out.
Don’t bin the scraps though. That will do very nicely as padding on the next one. The only fresh fibre has to be the thin layer at the front -ie the layer nearest the stamp.
Do the same on with the other stamp….
Did you know you can colour the set fibre with Promarkers or with our Perga Colours? I’m just about red and greened out though, so let’s hit the teal! Silver white fibre and teal. Winning combination!
We’ve got choices now. Shall we stick the front and back together, and make a tree decoration?
Mmmm. I could even add an initial on the hat….
… or, we could get them to link arms… cut the hand as I have done here, down the side of the body where it is straight.
Let’s make a little card then. Out with the Word Chain ABC. I’m telling you! I would be lost with out my ready-mounted Alphabet in a box!
Sorry! Couldn’t stop myself!
Ok. Stop larking about , Gray. Let’s make an arty background. Just sandwich a mix of coloured fibres between to sheets of baking parchment and iron.
Add a set word from the Word Chain Set – done. This is a cool card for a cool friend. I must finish and send! That’ll be the first one I have done! Yikes.
So back to the fibres. I love Angelina Fibre, or fusible fibre as it’s also called. I have a very healthy stash too. It makes super motifs and badges, is washable, can be sewn onto tops and jeans, doesn’t shrink, doesn’t fade. An all round excellent and fun product.
I really ought to get that sexy corset out again. Oooh! Did I say that out loud?!? What I meant was the corset stamp you can see in the basket above! Looks fabulous in fibre – all colours.
Check out the saving on the website. Available for one week at this price. Have fun xx

You add a white and we will add another white.
You add a green we add an extra green. And so on. In other words, we’ll double the quantity, which is a good thing, because when you get into it, you chomp through this gear. I feel a revival coming on in the New Year too. I have an idea….
Simply add it to your basket and we’ll send you an extra.
Time to stop for the day.
