Kraft-tex - Washable Paper - 1/2 metre
Wait until you get your hands on this rugged paper that looks, feels, and wears like leather, but sews, cuts, and washes just like fabric. Kraft-tex is supple, yet strong enough to use for projects that get tough wear. It can be hand washed or put through the washing machine to soften and add texture to the fabric and also to clean the finished project.
This washable paper is ideal for sewists who want to sew rugged leather-like bags and wallets but are limited by their sewing machine's ability to handle thick fabrics. It also lends itself well to creative manipulation...here are just a few ideas!
- Play with it! Sew it, stamp it, draw on it, fold it, inkjet print it
- The fiber-based texture softens and crinkles with handling and washing - experiment with wrinkling it, ironing it and dying it to create depth and character
- Durable enough for totes, belts, wallets, book covers, luggage tags, and more. Pair with fabric such as canvas or cotton linings and bag making hardware to create very professional and polished projects.
Kraft-tex is comprised of wood pulp and synthetic rubber polymer. It is manufactured in Germany. It measures 20" (50.8 cm) wide. Your order of Kraft-tex will be loosely folded to fit into a box or padded shipping envelope. To remove creases, simply iron Kraft-tex flat.
Our wallet sewing patterns are an ideal project for Kraft-tex - view the wallet bundle here.
