No More Picking at Edges to Get the Paper to Release!
Fusible web makes applique so much easier. Simply trace the desired shape onto the paper side of the web, press it to the back of fabric and cut out around the traced line. Then remove the paper backing.
That’s where things can get tricky because it can sometimes be difficult to get an edge to lift up so you can neatly remove the paper. Picking at the edges can cause the fabric to fray, which you don’t want happening.
Instead, try this trick from Susan of Quilt Fabrication. It’s quick, easy and practically foolproof. She explains how it works in the following article.

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
