Stitch Witchery

I came across this stuff tonight at AC Moore and thought what a great idea! (I somehow vaguely remember my mother using this stuff when I was about 5. On what, I don’t remember). Anyhow, I bought some thinking it would be an easy way to line my bag (the July challenge that I am still working on). Has anyone used this stuff to line bags? Does it work? Is it safe on felted wool?

In my experience, Stitch Witchery is used to “glue” two fabrics together, say for putting up a hem or to keep an armhole facing in place.

I don’t understand why you’d want to use it to line a purse…do you want the actual lining fabric to be glued to the purse?

What is it?
Stitch Witchery is a polyamide fusible web that permanently bonds two layers of fabric together.


Well, I don’t sew. So I thought it would be a great way to get a lining in the bag. I wasn’t planning on using it under the entire lining. Just enough to have it sit without pulling or moving.

I think I know what you mean…rather than sewing the lining in, you want to attach it with stitch witchery, right?
I’m sorry, i’m not a sewer either, so I can’t answer your question, but it sounds like a good solution for those of us who don’t sew!

Hmmm. Well, I’m not sure if the Stitch Witchery would work because of the uneven texture of the knitting. You could try it out on a swatch or something to find out.

Good luck and let us know if it works!!
