Ann, good tip, with all the purse sewing I know we PR people do ... Kathleen Fasanella mentioned this in one of her blog posts several weeks, but didn't give temp or pressing details, and I haven't yet got around to asking her. Now I don't have to -- Thanks!

Thanks for sharing this. I would never have considered fusing leather! I will take another look at my purse patterns.

I think the light bulb must have gone off in my head at the same moment! ealier oday I fused some interfacing onto the back of a leather strap because I didn't want it to stretch so much. The onlyl thing I noticed is that the skin retained heat much longer than fabric would.

Hey Gorgeous, I have just made my first and second leather jackets and it never occured to me that you couldn't fuse leather. I use Italian Lambskin that is just beuatiful, but my first jacket (black of course) I used fusible weft, and it was a little softer than I liked. On my second jacket I actually used fusible haircanvas which I at first thought was too stiff, now that I am wearing it, I wouldn't use anything else

Great review! I purchased a pelt at the Chantilly Sewing Expo - my first leather. I've been looking at it and finally started a purse last night. I fuse my pockets for stability - but wasn't sure about leather. Clair Shaffaer's book says no. But I did a scrap - and, as it turns out, Yes! Your review lets me know that I can now go with wild abandon!! Thanx! Vera

You know how you read a tip and then say, that's interesting, but I don't think I will ever use it? This was one of those tips. Guess what? My son asked me to make a leather case for his magical coins and I need to know this now. I'm so glad that it is here. Thanks, Ann.

I was very interested in the fact that you were able to fuse interfacing to the leather. I was thinking about doing this and I have some extra heavy stablizer and some stitch witchery. Do you think that would work? What is timetex? Is it a fuseable interfaceing? Please let me know what your thoughts are on this? I'm new to sewing. Bartley
