Free on Friday: Mystery Stuff

Hand painted by my little hands.
Can you guess what this is? It's called Lutradur. Lutradur is a non-woven textile that is sort of transparent, doesn't fray when cut, and can be painted like these sheets above.
So what do you do with it? I don't know, but it could be yours! Leave a comment today and you could be the lucky winner.

Lutradur is lovely! And versatile! I have used it for surface design and book pages,in charms and with machine embroidery. I would love to win!

Looks interesting.

Gene Black said...

Interesting, it almost sounds like a stabilizer (non-woven polyester) - It could be fun to paint on and then sew into an art quilt.

Cedar Ridge Studio said...

Like Gene interesting stuff. Would make interesting texture and accent to an art quilt. Have a nice day.

Jeanie said...

No, I've never heard of it but it sounds like it could have lots of applications. I'd love to give it a try. Thanks!

Edith Bieri said...

Lutradur is great!

Mimi said...

Sounds very interesting... I love to experiment with new things!

Debbie said...

I've never handled Lutradur before. I'd love to try it out. Those colors are great, too. Thanks, Laura. Have a good weekend.

ConundrumChum said...

It would be fun to try something new.

Lori said...

I have never heard of this product before, but can see lots of posibilites for using it creatively!

Anya said...

Looks intriguing!

Janelle said...

I have heard of Lutradur, but I have never used it. I would love a chance to play with it.

Nancy said...

These are interesting! Looks like fabric beads to me... that would be one fun use of it, and it would probably roll easily? I've been curious about this stuff.

Josie McRazie said...

I love that bright orange on the top!! Beautiful!!

Wabbit said...

For more on lovely Lutradur, check out Leslie Riley's book on it. It's fun stuff - for instance, you can burn holes or patterns in it with an iron!

Loved yesterday's class with you and just cannot wait for today's!

I love Lutradur, it is a great stabilizer for small items like ATC's and postcard sized pieces, and what is better, it can be painted and stitched and is self supporting so you can work with it dimensionally. Great stuff.

gill said...

I've never seen Lutradur but I'd love to try some!

Suztats said...

I've heard good things about Lutrador, but have yet to try it, so I'd love to win some! Thanks for the chance.

Pam said...

I had my "learners class" for my new sewing machine and lutradur came up in the conversation--they had never heard of it before so I sent a couple of blog links to them when I got home. It would be so cool to win this prize so I could take it in for show and tell!! Thanks for the chance!

Stephanie Forsyth said...

I would love to use these to create some votive covers - can you imagine some soft candlelight making these colors glow?? Yum!

Estie said...

Yes, I would love to win the Lutradur. I have seen projects/art quilts with this material. Looks like fun to create with it.

shawn said...

Looks like fun for a lot of different things- pick me!!!

Marybeth said...

I have Lutradur in my stash of products and have never used it. I would love to see what you have done!

Anonymous said...

The comments from people make Lutrador sound intriguing. I'm fumpfering over a 'tropical vacation' design and Lutrador could be just the solution! VermontPines at aol dot com

Jill said...

I wonder if it is like felt, but transparent. It sounds very interesting.

soren2go said...

I don't have a clue what to do with it either but it might inspire me if it arrived at my house.

Richard Healey said...

Laura said...

Locart said...

WOW, It must be mine!! LOL, I love your work, Laura. From Spain, Susana

Nancy L said...

I'd love to win them. I aactually have some Luzador that I haven't figured out where to use. So if I don't win I should get that out and paint and use it.

WoolenSails said...

I have seen a lot of people using it as a layer on art pieces. I haven't tried it, so no hints or tips.

Beth in IL said...

Looks like fun stuff. May have to talk my friends into getting some so we can play too.

Jan in AZ said...

I love the look of lutrador - and painting it is a ton of fun. I actually have a vision of making small quilts for the Alzheimer's Art Quilt initiative and overlaying lutrador to give the illusion of everything being foggy.

Thanks for the opportunity to win some!

Mrs. Sew and Sew - Karen said...

Oh yes, they are beautiful colors! I think it would be great to embellish art quilts. And yes, the first thing that popped in my mind was fabric beads! I would love to give it a try.

MarthaVA said...

I've read about it and heard about it, never tried it - but would love to and learn about it.
Love what YOU did with it!
Martha

Renate said...

Oh yummy! I've heard of Lutradur and used it in a recent art quilt. I would love to have those. The colours remind me of sky, leaves, desert fruit, dessert....yummy! Thanks for the chance.

Susan said...

oh oh something new to me! If I won it, I owuld play, I f I donlt win it, I will search it out then play. Love new things!!! Thanks for the chance

Marcia W. said...

This looks pretty - and it probably would look good in the crazy quilt my mother and I want to make. Thanks for the chance to see your Lutrador fabric in person.

Sewgirl said...

Oh...those are gorgeous..and perfect for adding that special je nais se quai to one's quilts...I hope I win!!

Faith said...

I've heard a lot about it, but have never seen it or used it. It seems like it would be a perfect fusible appliqué material.
