Project and Content Creation Ideas:

Works inside and out and is very economical, so it’s a great alternative for PARTY CRAFTING – and can be used instead of paper or tissue for many projects. It’s more durable than papers – wont crease, wrinkle or tear quickly in wind or from hyper kids – and it won’t disintegrate when in contact with water.

CREATIVE GIFT WRAPPING – To sew or not to sew – that is your question – use basic folding and wrapping techniques or more complicated origami to create beautiful, unique and durable gift wrapping. Vibrant colors can be used as is, or can be stamped, stenciled, or painted on with a variety of materials. If you can make it in Felt, you can make it in Oly*Fun – but it will be more weather and water resistant with a more tailored look and feel.
Easy to die cut for Bulletin Board art, school projects, and all sorts of teacher / student projects.

Easy to sew – this is a great material for beginner sewing – there is no grain, no selvedge, no sizing, no fraying…. Just so easy.
Essentially all school spirit color combinations are included in the 18 color palette of Oly*Fun – make spirit pom-poms, spirit cuff bracelets, bleacher cushions, ponchos, etc for your students and community. Can make a great fundraiser – easy to make by kids and families – reasonable cost and lots of value when sold before a big game!

    Is it food safe? I want to line my shelves on kitchen with it so I wonder if it safe to use near food, plates etc

    1. Niki Meiners says:

      Lanny, The material is used to make reusable grocery bags to carry items home from the store. It would be considered safe to use but not to directly serve food from. We would love to see how your shelves turn out. It sounds like a great idea.

  3. Cindy says:

    Can I use fusible webbing to adhere fabric to it?

    1. Niki Meiners says:

      Our recommendation is no. If you decide to, you have to be extremely careful. Olyfun will melt. You can glue stick baste it to your project.

    1. Niki Meiners says:

      Absolutely. It is great forcounted cross stitch too.

  5. Linda Lilly says:

    can I dry clean it?

    1. Niki Meiners says:

      You can wash with soap and water. We do not recommend dry-cleaning.

  6. Can I use as a small quilt backing?

    1. Niki Meiners says:

      Carlea,
      You could use it as a quilt backing- but we would not recommend it. It is not soft and cuddly.

  7. Sher says:

    I purchased metallic olyfun to use as a table runner. How do I get the folds to lie flat from being on the fabric bolt.

    1. Niki Meiners says:

      You can place a book on the fold over night.

  8. beth says:

    can you machine embroidery on this? what kind of stabilizer would you recommend

    1. Robin Dann says:

      You can machine embroider on Olyfun. As Oly*fun is a non woven material made from plastics, you should not need a stabilizer. You can double the sheets if you feel that it is too thin for your liking.
