Anyone tried this?

Hi everyone.  Having a good day?   I saw something at Walmart and wanted to ask if anyone has used this product. 
Alene's fabric tape.
This may be easier to use than glue to close seams but I'm wondering how it would work on coarse linen.  The tape would need a smooth finish to bond to and I doubt that it would work on the type I stitch with.  The backing fabric would stick, but I thought I would ask if anyone used this product on a linen.  I guess it comes in sheets too that you can cut to accommodate your projects.  Yes, I'm always looking for ways to close a seam without having to stitch it.  For some reason, it never looks as good or crisp as using fabric glue, especially on the pear bottoms.  Smalls like needlebooks can be hemmed by pressing and then completely finished by using something like this.  Or adding applique or pockets.  I like that it doesn't have to be pressed with a hot iron like the fusibles.  I'm getting a few ideas.

I've been working on the unit for the remodeled room and pulled a large kitchen cabinet up the stairs from the basement.  I do stupid things.  But then I lifted it onto the 36" high drawer unit.  Stupid times 2.  I can't bend, but I can bow my head today which I couldn't do yesterday.  Advil is helping and as soon as I can get in a car, my chiro will help too, shaking his head as always.   

 Anyway, I think I have a plan to utilize the two units that were in mom's little area, add the shelves from the corner, which will run into another solid tall cabinet.  This is really rough but the best I can do in Paint.  I love these full extension deep drawers but don't like them here.  In fact, the more I look at this, I don't like it at all.
   The drawer fronts and cabinet doors will be replaced with custom flush panels and rattail hinges.  Nope.  I still don't like it - something isn't right. 
Some of you mentioned how gardening is getting more difficult, so I thought I'd post about this seat/kneeler in case you don't have a large garden center near you and never saw them.  It has an available pouch for tools and is found on Amazon and even Walmart, a deeper seat model is on Gardeners.com and some even rock. I use the adjustable aluminum shower seat on the lowest notch too. 
  An aid for those chores that make us groan like a moose in heat.  Today, after that cupboard moving, I could call in the whole herd along with a few elk. 

Tomorrow I will post the chart pack for sale if anyone is interested. 

Thanks for visiting!  Have a safe and happy day.

Yes Marly, those Moose calls have been heard even here to the great Mojave and since no moose reside here the coyotes responded ... a lot of howling ... yikes.
I too am notorious for doing stupid stuff...but since my back surgery it is limited. I am sure you will find a spot that pleases you for those wonderful cabinets ... just hope you do not attempt to haul them down the stairs this time.
Have a Great day,

I like the cabinets, but I think they are a bit overpowering or overwhelming to that corner.

Hope you are feeling less sore!

I use that kneeler and it is wonderful!! Sometimes I just have to live with things and then I can figure out why I don't like the way it looks.

Marly, We are women hear us roar !
We really do some things that we shouldn't but I hate to ask for help. You too ?

I've been known to move large pieces of furniture myself. I hope the back pain gets better quickly.

Margaret said...

Yikes! Not a good idea to move big pieces of furniture on your own! Hope you're feeling better by now.

Really? You did that in Paint? Oh, I am so technologically impaired. I kinda like them there....but, then again, when you have a house as small as I do, you sort of get acclimated to "overwhelming" if you know what I mean.... ;o) That kneeler thing looks intriguing....just trying to figure out how I'd manage to seriously hurt myself with it.....
