    I have been looking for heat n bond light cant find it. Went to Dumas and went to the LQS and walmart nope both had the ultra which I know you cant sew through :roll:
    Well at Walmart they had wonder under I hope its the same thing? Am I right or did I mess up again???????? It is very thin and very easy to tear. The instructions say to fuse it to one piece then peel paper then fuse onto another piece of fabric. So is it easy to machine stitch over?

    Wonder Under doesn't change the hand of the fabric. Also, when you sew thru it you will not get goo build up on your needle.

    I use both...Wonder Under and the Heat N Bond Lite. Just all depends on what Ben Franklin is selling at the moment.

    I use Wonder Under all the time, on t-shirts, on applique, on patches for clothes, anything and everything. It's wonderful stuff and no gummy mess! Woohoo!

    Thanks yall I am glad I did good this time LOL
    I dont get into Dumas that often and when the LQS here and there didnt have the heat n bond and walmart only had the ultra heat n bond I thought I was out of luck. The lady who works at the fabric area asked if I ever tried the stuff they have on the bolts.....nope but the instructions said it bonded on both sides I took the whole bolt. Hey at $1 a yard and messured out to 19 yards I am set for a good while.
    I am glad when things work out :D :D :D :D

    I love wonder under. Wish I had known about it before I did my first T shirt quilt. Oh well, we learn in time.

    I use wonderunder alll the time. There is some stuff called steam to a seam, I dont like it. The paper kept coming off before you want it to & it is very expensive. I think there must be a shortage of Heatbond because before christmas my Walmart was out & they continue to stay out. I had to get husband on work trip stop & look for me out of town for it.

    Why not contact the manufacturer??? They are in Illinois. I think Wheeling. I have talked to them way back when the product was new and they were very accomadating.

    I was referring to Heat N Bond...My preferance is the Heat N Bond over the Wonder under. I worked better for me.
