A couple of years ago, we began stocking this great product called Soft and Stable in packages here at Hamel’s. Soft and Stable is made by Annie’s. There is also an identical product from Bosal called In-r-form. We can’t get enough of these two products! They work virtually the same way as you sew them into bags, placemats and table runners, etc. It gives really nice stability to your bag.
Here’s a video from Annie, herself, the creator of this wonderful product:
Use Soft and Stable or In-r-Form in place of batting in your project. You can quilt right through this stuff or just sew around the edges. There is so much flexibility with these foam products that you will be creating fabulous creations quickly and with ease. This firm resilient foam might seem like sewing through a yoga mat, when you first begin your project, but with a fresh quilting needle in your machine you can sail right through it!
Right now we have a kit called the “Denny Bag” which includes Soft and Stable. This kit is a great way to get you started with using this foam. This kit is comprised of warm fall colours from Kansas Troubles’ “Sweet Pea” collection.
These foam products don’t mind a gentle wash in cool, but we suggest hanging to dry. Go ahead and press after washing if you want to smooth your project out a bit.
If you prefer a larger piece off the bolt, we have Bosal In-R-Form in 58″ width in either black or white.
