|Rolling out the Mistyfuse on an Ikea paper roller, found in the children's section of the store. It is meant for paper, but works great for the 12" bolt of Mistyfuse.
|Covering the hand-dyed fabric with Mistyfuse on top with a Fat Goddess Sheet, which is also made by Mistyfuse. I will use a hot dry iron all over the top of this, bonding this Mistyfuse to the fabric.
|This is how the Mistyfuse should look after being bonded with the fabric, shiny.
|I cut the fabric a certain size, and if I could remember, I would tell you. But, really the size is insignificant in the big scheme of things. Might be around 12x13
|I backed it with a piece of pink felt
|I was given this pen - Frixon. You write with it on fabric, and then the ink disappears when you iron it. I should give it a try. Just imagine the detailed designs that you could get with free motion machine quilting, if this works.
|So, I decided to draw a house, from my sketchbook. It is quite similar to a house that I designed for StencilGirl, and I used some of the same design elements. If you click on StencilGirl above, you can see the stencil. I am thinking that this is pretty great to draw out my design. But, where will the pen residue go, when you iron it?

|The house is done! I cleaned my iron completely before I used is to erase the pen drawing. Feeling a little apprehensive about this.
|As I was ironing this, I found out where the pen residue goes. My answer was on my fabric. So disappointed.
|So, into the trash it goes! Too bad, so sad. This started an excellent discussion on Social Media, and Jenny K. Lyon did a great blog post about this pen. Click here to view her blog.
|This is the back on pink wool blended felt. I think I will finished it and sell it as is - the back side.
