    Do you all machine applique the ones that are applique die cuts or do you just use the fusible. I am always afraid they will not stay when washed. Just want your experienced opinions.

    If you plan to wash you do need to sew them down. At least that's my packages of steam a seam say. I usually use the fancy double stitch that looks like hand embroidery.

    I'm pretty bad about just putting my fabric any which way it fits. So far it's not been a problem.

    I think this would mostly apply to strip cutters when you are cutting folded fabric.
    What I do is put a piece of painter's tape on the die and run it thru the machine. now you can see exactly where the blades are. Using a ruler and a sharpie marker (use a metallic one for black foam) carefully mark a perpendicular line on the foam near the end of the blades. Do this on the other end too. now when you cut a strip from folded fabric, you know that the fold is perpendicular and your strips will come out straight, not "V" shaped.
