    I am looking for the name of the interfacing used for appliqueing that I have seen here somewhere on the board. It is supposed to be like wonder under but stays soft after it is ironed on. Can someone please help me on this one? :roll:

    Heatn' Bond definitely does not stay soft! Unless I'm doing it wrong. Would like to know which one it is, too.

    Misty fuse or heat and steam a seam will work :D:D:D

    Also there is a new spray that is permanent. It is put out by the same company that makes 505, 515? or something like that...

    I don't know if it is the same one that I seen on here before but I looked up Misty Fuse and it sounds like it would be good to work with. Guess I won't know 'til I try it. Thanks everyone.

    Thanks for that information. I have a package that I haven't opened yet. I now know not to expect much. Thanks again.

    When I was doing a applique quilt years ago, I bought a real thin pellon that they said was for appliquing on quilts. It was strong enough for the cutting out and stopped fraying, and it didn't seem to add any stiffness. It wasn't a double sided fusible.

    Use Steam-a-Seam Lite--not regular Steam-a-Seam.

    I also like to use used dryer sheets for needle turn applique & invisible machine applique. Place your fabric face down on on the dryer sheet & sew around on the seam line. Cut a slit in the dryer sheet and turn piece right side out. Press & clip curves/points as needed to get it to lay flat. Lightweight non-woven interfacing would work also and I know a person that uses tulle the same way.
