71f Peltex Ultra Firm 1-sided Fusible is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from New bonding system I have frequently purchased this product and today I purchased a yard from my local Joann's. To my surprise when I got it home the backside had a metallic look to it similar to Insulbright and not the glue dots I've been accustomed to. Almost certain I had purchased the sew in version I reviewed my receipt and it did say peltex 71F so I decided to try it out and see if it would actually fuse to my fabrics. It does however I don't feel like it bonded as well as the prior version with the "glue dots". Just a heads up if you purchase this product on a frequent basis.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Contradictory Application Instructions The application video shown here for this product contradicts the application instructions that actually come with the Peltex 71 one-sided fusible, which instructions state to use a 'hot steam iron at wool setting. Use a gliding motion and slight pressure to iron Peltex 71 F to fabric'. The second step in the instructions then say to 'cover with a damp press cloth and press firmly for 10-15 seconds. Then in bold font it states to 'ALWAYS USE A DAMP PRESS CLOTH AND PRESS DOWN FIRMLY.' The last step states to 'Repeat lifting and overlapping until all fabric is fused. Remove press cloth and iron fabric to eliminate excess moisture.' I make fabric handbags, usually with cotton fabric which this Peltex 71 fuses to very well, when applied as per the instructions that come with it, using a press cloth and a STEAM iron on wool settings. Because I want my handbags to be machine washable, I did a test run on a 8" x 10" piece of cotton fabric fused with this Peltex 71 and ran it through the washer and dryer on normal settings in hot water to see if the Peltex would STAY fused to the fabric. I washed and dried this sample piece 3 times and the Peltex firmly stayed put. I was very impressed with its adhesion capabilities through repeated washings. However, when sewing two layers of fabric with Peltex fused to the back, by putting the right sides of the fabric together, the Peltex fuzzy side is down and does not slide very easily across your pressure plate. I've found using regular tissue paper placed underneath makes it much easier to slide the Peltex fused fabric across your pressure plate as you sew and then just tear it away afterwards. The needle goes through these two layers of it just fine though, no problem there. The other issue I had with it is both a pro and a con. It is very stiff, doesn't DISTORT and holds its shape well in the finished sewn project which is a big plus. But this also means you cannot press your seams open. Even with a steam setting, you can't get that seam allowance to stay pressed open or closed, because the Peltex fused fabric would be bending back on itself and it just won't do that. The only thing that works for getting a really nice flat seam is gluing those seam allowances one way or the other, open or closed. Fabric glue works but its a little messy. 'Wonder Tape' works really well for this. Even though Peltex 71 has its little quirks, once you've used it and see what they are and how to work around them, you'll love it. The secret to being happy with the final results is making sure it is fused onto the fabric really well first.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for totes and handbags I make totes and handbags from old blue jeans and use the Peltex on the bottoms. It fuses well, does not shift, is washable and provides a stable base for the bags. I no longer have to use removable plastic or craftboard that has to be encased in fabric.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Heavyweight Hold I love this ultra firm Peltex. I make structured bags that need to hold their shape and stand up to the abuse of daily life. This product does the trick. I'd love for it to be a little cheaper but - you get what you pay for!
