    Soluble (washout) Fusible Web

    I would like to know is there such athing as wash away fusible web that I can use? I googled but I'm not sure of some of the products out there. Thanks in advance for advice.

    Fusible web is an adhesive. That's all it is, a hardened glue substance that is softened by the heat of an iron and adheres to the surfaces on either side of it. When it cools, it again turns solid and holds the two things together. It does not wash out, nor is it intended to. That would defeat the purpose.

    Are you thinking of water soluble stabilizer perhaps?

    if you are thinking of a temporary glue type product, you can use Elmer's glue... that washes away. some glue sticks wash away as well,.

    OESD Aqua Mesh is a wash away stabilizer. Sulky also sells a water soluble stabilizer. Both brands are available online and/or at your LQS. Most Joann's sell Sulky stabilizers too.

    steam a seam lite, heat N bond lite, wonder under- all wash away when you launder your finished quilt- the fusables are made to keep everything secure for stitching- then they wash away.

    Walmart here has wash away fusible. I don't remember the brand name but it works the same as the wash away fusible stabilizer from Sulky. I have several yards of it so I'll look to see if there is a name brand anywhere. I may have kept the plastic instructions with it but I usually throw that out.
    Got fabric?

    Wonder Under most certainly does not wash away, nor do the other two you mentioned, at least in my years of experience.

    You are right that those fusibles don't wash away--they soften in the wash, but they are still there. Floriani FSWF is a Stitch N W Wash Fusible Water Soluble stabilizer. You can buy it in a 12" by 10 yard roll. I have used it and it works well.

    I wondered about this also.

    I want it for applique. I think I'm using the wrong term though.

    I'm not sure what you are using it for but yes, there is a water soluable stabilizer. You can get it at most fabric stores; my Walmarts doesn't keep it. There is Sulky which has a regular and heavy duty, Florani has one; I just bought a roll this weekend; a 12 x 25ft roll was 35 but you can get smaller ones. You can even get it in tape form sometimes if you just want to do like a seam. Steam a seam and those types don't wash away. You can even get one that uses heat to disolve it. I use lots of stabilizers for embroidery.

    JoAnns sells washable INTERFACING or stabilizer that I use for quilting.
    Trace quilt pattern, pin to quilt, quilt, and when done toss the whole thing into the washer. Just love that stuff.
    I buy it by the bolt when interfacing is on sale.
    If you don't work on it you'll never finish it.
