You May Already Have Some of This in Your Sewing Room or Kitchen!
One of the drawbacks of fusible applique is that it’s all too easy to get residue from the fusible web on your ironing board. Over time the adhesive can turn your board cover into a stained mess.
A teflon pressing sheet, such as the June Tailor Non Stick Pressing Sheet, is a great solution. You can place it on the ironing board, then fold it over the pieces you’re fusing and protect the iron too. Any residue that adheres to the sheet can be easily removed.
But what if you don’t have a pressing sheet, or want to use fusible web with a larger project?
The following video shows how to use freezer paper instead (no, the wax from the paper will not build up on your ironing board cover).
It’s a quick and easy way to protect your ironing board and can create a large protected surface. Watch the quick video to see how it’s done.
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!
