For most applique work, you usually use water-soluble fabric glue to get your desired effect. But what if you didn’t need to use that at all?
Laura from SewVeryEasy has come up with so many intriguing ideas over the years, but this applique technique has to be one of my favorites.
She uses something called “Charlotte’s Fusible Web.” It’s a thread that is fusible fabric glue and thread in one. It speeds up the process of machine applique, and it’ll become your best friend in no time.
To use this thread for a lightweight project, you don’t even need to use it in the bobbin. You can just lay the thread down, and put your applique piece on top, iron it, and it’s done!
You just need to remember to take the thread out of the bobbin if you do choose to use it. If you iron another project and forget that the thread is in there, it will glue.
Check out Laura’s applique tutorial below and give this a try yourself. I love how easy this is and I’ll definitely be using this trick for my next wall hanging!
