Craft Tip of the Day ~~~ Heat n Bond

16 Mar

Heat n Bond Lite is my BFF (Best Friend Forever) when it comes to appliqueing with an embroidery machine.  Why?  When I first started embroidering I didn’t use it under my appliques.  It would never fail that I would cut the fabric to close to the tack down line and then my applique fabric would shift and not get covered in the final satin stitch.    Another reason I like using this is because it fuses the applique fabric right to the item that you are stitching on.  So you don’t get a bulge under your applique pieces.  Heat  N Bond gives you a professional finish to your item.

Check back tomorrow as I will give you a  step by step tutorial on how to use Heat n Bond Lite when you are appliqueing.
