There is a thread on the Papertrey Forum, started by Erin here, that showed a fusible vinyl material from an online source. Someone else on the thread thought they had seen a similar product at theiir local Joann's. I was out and about in town today and had some time to kill, and stopped at our Joann's to check it out. Sure enough, they carried a similar product made by Pellon - a company that makes all kind of stabilizers. I bought a yard and a half, using my 40% off coupon - regular price was $5.89 per yard. Here is what the product looks like:
And this is how the little purse turned out. My little granddaughter loves owls, so this will go to her. I love the fact that it's easy to wipe clean and sturdy enough to take a beating.
