We’ve introduced you to the new Wonder Fuse and now it’s time to see it in action and see what it can do for you!
Art. No 4090
To use the Wonder Fuse first reverse and trace your appliqué design creating a mirror image on the release paper side of Wonder Fuse. Cut fusible web slightly larger than your traced design.
Next, place fusible web (rough side) on the wrong side of the fabric. Use a hot, dry iron and press for 5-8 seconds.
Note: always check your iron temperature with the fusible before you begin your work. Heavier fabrics will require more time.
After the temperature cools down, cut appliqué to size, following outlines drawn on paper backing, Then peel off paper backing.
Finally, place the appliqué with the fusible web side down onto project. Use a dry iron to fuse appliqué to background fabric with pressing sheet.
