I just finished a project that used fusible interfacing. It said to cut the fabric 9x12 and to cut the interfacing the same, then fuse. I cut the interfacing to 87/8x 117/8 (undersized by 1/8") I will be doing this all the time now. Less chance of the fusible getting on the iron and it will still be caught in the 1/4" seam.
Now that's using your noggin'. Thanks for letting us in on your secret.
when i didn't have a Teflon sheet, i did it that way. saved my iron! when using the sheet..i need to remember to turn off the steam setting, the steam has no where to go but out! Hot hot!
I have a press sheet but like you said, the steam is hot, hot, hot! That and I never remember to get it out. *sigh*
Hey, did you know that you can use baking parchment for an applique sheet?-another way to save that iron.
i have my sheet pinned to the ironing board..it is right in front of the handle to open the board up!
i know, i am just so dang clever! lol
Kim, my board is always set up, I'd have to pin it to my nose!
Karen, doesn't the parchment have some oils in it?
