    Has anyone ever been brave enough to try running steam a seam through a printer to get the design you want without having to trace it onto the fusible? It seems like an inkjet type of printer would work but I'm a little chicken to try it.

    I wouldn't try it with Steam-a-Seam, but this stuff says it's made for ink jet printing. http://www.esticker.com/zoomnotion.c...oductid=086913

    I've used a couple of these types of papers/fusibles, but not this particular brand. They work really well...I love 'em! It's so much better than tracing onto the web, etc. I copy it with my All-In-One printer, onto this paper, then cut out and fuse onto my fabric. This is what I've started using for applique. I'm still testing out a couple of brands I got at the Houston Quilt Festival, but so far, it's scoring 100% in my book!

    I have never even seen these so now I'm excited about trying them out. Thanks to both of you for advising me about them.

    Iron freezer paper or copy paper to the edge of the fusible and then run it through... worse case scenario? it will stick to the paper :D:D:D

    I absolutely do this all the time. Don't know if I use the same brand. But, If I can skip a step I will. I will print directly onto my iron on stabilizer (for appliques - for example). I can then cut out the pieces and affix to the different fabrics. Remember to print the mirror image though if your design requires a right or left. Works great. Also run through muslin to make my labels. Ironing them afterwards sets the ink and I'm good to go.
