    Do any of you use the Press 'n Seal stuff with your Applique' work? Someone was talking about it yesterday at all day sew--I had forgotten about that technique. Is there a method of applique' you prefer?

    I think you just lay it over and trace your pattern. Lay it on your fabric and press with your hand again. Then cut out your applique' and place it. You can even sew through the press and seal and it tears away easily. I am sure this is the way it is done.

    I don't even like Press & Seal for food storage! It leaves a residue on the edge of any dish or container it's used on - doesn't even come off in the dishwasher:( That said, I would not use it for applique simply because I would not want any my fabric. Any benefit it may have in the applique process is to me useless since it's not worth potential damage to the fabric.

    I traced a quilting pattern on it and pressed it on my border and quilted through it. Everything worked great til I tried to remove it. It was a pain and left a little sticky residue on the fabric. Thank goodness the quilt was for me. I'll never use it again.

    Wow, thanks for this thread, glad to read what not to use. I could see myself ruining something trying to remove the residue. I appreciate the advice.

    Good to know about the sticky residue! LOL!! It seems like if anything will happen or go wrong it will happen to my projects - Murphy's Law! Thanks for the info!
