How to Use Lite Steam-A-Seam 2 fusible web:
Trace your shape on the grid side of the fusible web.
New! You can also now print directly on the grid side of the fusible web using a ink-jet printer!
Cut out the shapes roughly, leaving around 1/4-inch of extra web and paper all around the shape. Remove the plain paper on the back side of the web and stick it to your fabric.
Press with a hot, steam iron for 3 seconds, then cut out the shape exactly on the the traced lines.
Remove the grid paper and place the applique where you want it. Press again with a hot, steam iron for 10-15 seconds for cotton fabrics. Adjust temperature and pressing time to suit your fabric. Repeat, slightly overlapping pressed areas until complete.
Machine wash and dry at low heat or dry-clean.
Lite Steam-a-Seam 2 is the best fusible web for applique because it's lightweight, fuses securely, and won't gum up your needle as you quilt over your applique shapes!
