    I don't have any fusible web. I'm making those criss cross coasters that seem to be as popular as the mug rugs right now. I have all the squares cut out. Each coaster requires 1 square of fusible web...all I have is heat and bond lite. Is this going to mess with anything? It looks like all it does is fuse the wrong sides of the inner and outer linings. Do you think I could just use the heat n bond? I know it's lightweight and sewable. I'll be needing 24 squares.

    What do you guys think?

    Oh...and while I think about it. Can you use a rotary cutter on either the heat n bond or on the web? I'd like to make as many squares at the same time as I can. The package I have of the heat n bond is 17" wide by 1 1/4 yards. Plenty enough for twenty four 4 " squares.

    Heat n Bond is fusible web and the type you have can be sewn over so use it and yes you can use a rotary cutter on it. I have a designated rotary for paper etc so I don't dull the blade as quickly on the ones I use for fabric. There are several brands of fusible web, heat n bond is my favorite affordable one.

    Oh I thought it was interfacing. Well, good. It means I got the right stuff. I press it to one piece of fabric at the beginning, then take the paper off and assemble everything else. I don't press it to activate the other side until they are done.

    I thought it would be easier to cut 24 squares of the web with a rotary cutter. If forgot about the paper....I might just do it with scissors.

    Thank you for such a quick response! I still have time tonight to get some cut!

    be sure its the light heat and bond. when i was making some appliques i used the heavier hat and bond and it played havoc with my machine sewing. gummed up the needle and kept skipping lots of stitches. i ended up having to scrap much of the project and redo it.

    it's definitely the lite. Also, the pieces are a little smaller, probably to not make the seams so bulky. The heat n bond pieces are smaller than the squares I'm using by 1/2".

    I made some and just used interfacing. I even washed them and they came out fine. I think you should be okay.
