Steam-A-Seam 2®


steam2a.jpg (7833 bytes)The Fasturn® tool can be used to make your own bias tubing for stained glass projects. By making your own bias tube you can make it any color you wish. Use batiste fabric, wash it first, make your tube and then apply 1/4" Steam-A-Seam 2® to the back side. You can position the tube exactly where you want it and steam it for a permanent bond. If you prefer to sew it down use either a twin needle or a single needle to sew the tube. The Steam-A-Seam 2® does not gum up your needle. You can make your own bias tubing for pennies instead of dollars!!

Why top designers choose Steam-A-Seam 2®:

  • Temporary hold permits complete project assembly before bonding

  • Iron only once for a permanent bond

  • Edges stay down without painting or sewing or sew through without gumming needle

  • Machine washable and dry cleanable
