Pellon has just launched a fusible version of their Flex Foam. They asked me if I was interested in trying it out, and let me tell you--the timing was perfect--I knew just what I wanted to make!
My third son just turned one. Which means I've had a lot of years of diapers and lugging around a diaper bag. Whenever I can, I'd rather just grab a few supplies (diaper, wipes, changing pad) and bring them along instead of an entire bag. I threw my last changing pad out when the fabric separated from the padding and the padding balled up inside--so frustrating! When I heard about fusible Flex-Foam, I knew exactly what I was going to do with it!
This Grab-n-Go Changing Pad folds up to hold a diaper and a travel case of wipes, and then unfolds to be used. Compact. Cushioned. Easy. I like it!

The Flex-Foam adhered to the fabric so smoothly--not wrinkles, no pulling. And it stayed adhered! It's such a nice layer of cushiony softness!
I can't wait to make something else with it. (And I have something in mind...which I will share as a tutorial...as soon as I find time to make it!)
Here's a little bit more information about the Flex-Foam, and then at the bottom of this post are a few additional photos of my project, links to the rest of the Flex-Foam blog hop, and details about a giveaway so you can try Flex-Foam yourself!
Pellon® Flex-Foam™ is a lightweight stabilizer consisting of a layer of foam sandwiched between two layers of soft fabric. It is excellent for use in crafts, accessories, and home décor projects for an elegant finished look. It can be used in place of or in addition to other stabilizers. Flex-Foam is a breeze to sew through and adds shape and body to projects such as computer cases, eyeglass cases, purses, tote bags, cup holders, diaper bags, and more! It is compatible with a wide variety of fabrics. It is available as a sew-in, a 1-sided fusible or a 2-sided fusible. Available 20” on the board and 60” on the roll*.
*60” roll isn’t as readily available as the board at the moment, but that should change soon!
See the various Flex-Foam products here:
And the outside is this neat circle print--something that doesn't scream "baby" for when I'm carrying it around. (I can almost pretend it's a clutch, right?!)
Comment here for a chance to win a yard each of each variety of Flex Foam: sew-in, 1-sided fusible, and 2-sided fusible. Leave a comment letting me know what you'd make with Flex-Foam. One random winner will be chosen (US & Canadian residents only). The giveaway is open through Sunday, September 20th at 11:59 pm EST. Please make sure I have a way to contact you!
