I used the following fusibles from left to right:
1. Heat and Bond Featherlite
2. Soft Fuse
3.Steam a Seam 2 Lite
4. Wonder Under
5. Steam a Seam 2 Regular
6. Heat and Bond Lite
|I had such a fun time using this brown batik as a basket/planter box. I love fussy cutting geometric prints.|
I also did the big brown planter in Wonder Under and ripped the stabilizer away from the back to see if that made a difference. It was thinner, but still stiff.
If you look carefully at he right flower above, you can see that I have the pattern underneath my background fabric. I've traced the pattern in a thin black sharpie so I could see the pattern through the fabric. This worked great....until I added the stabilizer underneath! Then I couldn't see through anymore and had to use a lightbox to place my pieces.
I have had many problems with Heat and Bond Lite and Featherlite not sticking well or coming off the tips of the pieces. It's not something I plan to use a lot of. I do like Wonder Under and have had much success with it, However, I do a lot of symmetrical applique and I want to know my pieces are going to stay put. So I plan to stick with Steam a Seam for now.
The next step will be to quilt this little table runner and see what happens and how the fusibles differ.
