NOTE: Always test on
a sample of the material first. 007 is suitable for most fabrics.
Test 007 on sample of similar material first.
Always use your iron on hot setting (cotton/linens) and use
without steam. Take care, a hot iron can damage fabrics. When
first switching on the iron allow time to regulate.
Use ONLY Bo-Nash fiberglass Ironing Sheet on both sides of garment
if possible. This will protect garment from heat of iron, especially
for delicate fabrics. Always clean sheet before each use with
wet or dry cloth. Greaseproof paper can also be used.
Always blow away surface powder before applying heat.
Can be washed, boiled or dry cleaned after bond has been allowed
to set fully, approximately 1 hour.
Amount of powder required depends on thickness of fabrics. The
heavier the fabric, the more powder and longer heat required to
make a suitable bond.
Saves time and money when embellishing with laces and fragile
HOLES IN FLAT FABRIC/OTHER FABRIC
Cut a clean hole and eliminate charred or frayed edges.
Cut an identical piece of material, slightly larger than the
hole, from a concealed area of the garment (hem, waistband, etc.)
NOTE: For prints or designed fabrics, make sure you match
and align print first to give a perfect match.
Take a paintbrush and moisten the edges of the patch material
on the right side and apply the powder.
The powder will cling to the moisture while you place the damaged
area of garment over the material patch, lining up the pattern
Blow away any excess powder that may be showing.
Apply heat using Ironing Sheet to protect garment.
Turn over and heat again using Ironing Sheet.
NOTE: Always remember to blow away excess powder so it cannot
be transferred onto the right side of garment.

sleeve area, lapel etc., where there is a double layer of fabric.
Work from right side only.
On upholstery DO NOT USE ON OLEFIN OR SIMILAR MATERIAL, a hot
iron can damage.
Please try on a sample or inconspicuous area first, on all fabrics.
You will need a patch of the same material for a hole.
Moisten edges on right side of patch material and apply powder.
The powder will cling to moisture to enable you to push the
patch through hole so that the patch is now underneath.
Blow away powder that shows through hole.
If a tear, apply powder over whole area of patch material, before
pushing through tear or rip, then match up pattern, if any, and
pull sides together.

MOTH HOLES AND BURN HOLES IN WOOL BLENDS
& NAP FIBER FABRICS
Cut away any burnt edges from the holes.
Cut a small amount of fiber from seam or hem, or pull several
threads from fabric. Roll fiber into a ball between your fingers.
Using scissors, cut fibers up as fine as possible, almost fluff.
The more time taken in preparation gives a better invisible mend.
Put the cut fibers into a small dish and mix with a small amount
of powder. Working on the wrong side of the garment, use Ironing
Sheet on both sides of the repair when possible. Place sufficient
amount of fluff and powder mixture into the hole and sprinkle
powder over. Cover with patch of fabric (cotton is best, cut in
circle) and Ironing Sheet. Apply heat for a few seconds, then
turn on to the right side and apply heat for a few seconds again.
Leave for 1 hour for bond to set. All repairs can be washed or
dry cleaned after bond has fully set. The more textured the fabric
the better the repair.

A creative fiber medium. These come in lots of colors to choose
from, made of polyester and acrylic. When heat is applied, they
"bond" together. Place some of the fibers in between the Bo-Nash
Nonstick. Ironing and Craft Sheet and apply heat. They will bond
together. Experiment using different amounts, to get a lacy or thick
finish. Use with a medium iron for just a few seconds. Check the
fibers are bonded. The amount of heat and length of heat applied
will affect the color of the Angelina. Too much heat will result
in all the color disappearing. Use as they are for making fantasy
fabrics or cut into shapes. They do not bond to anything else unless
you use a fusible. Bonding Agent 007, the powdered fusible allows
you to apply the fibers to your fabrics and because it stays soft

tissue and wood. Use your imagination, the possibilities are endless.
