  • Seeking info about material

    I just bought some confetti material and wanted to know what to use to appliqué it. Do I use Heat-n-bond and/or WonderUnder, and do I cover the material with a separate cloth that way I don't melt the actual confetti? Please email me your info to: [email protected]

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO no wonder under, no heat and bond, no IRONING...it will make all the confetti dots fall off...and when you wash it..wash it cold and hang dry...

    You might want to try a water disolveable spray adhesive... ask about it at Joannes fabrics cause I don't think that Walmart carries it...and if JOannes don't have it..call your nearest quilting store.

      What's confetti material? Is it similar to the sequin stuff?
      ...it is what it is...

        Confetti material is when there are little round metallics on a stretchy or satin based material.

              Yep, I agree with Backup_singa. Use wonder-under with your iron set a little cooler. And save a big piece of the paper off the wonder under and cover your fabric with it.

              If any sequins come off, they can be put in place and ironed back on. Ask me how I know.:Chatter :Chatter

                Agree... to me the paper is as valuable as the stuff itself!! I also keep it to press wrinkles out after it is all put together and finds its way under alot of stuff that is packed in the powwow pony! Most motels offer an iron now so just in case!! ;)

                  good tip, thanks backup! I have always been afraid to applique the confetti dot material because of that. I was always using plain neon materials for my applique work cause the dots would fall off on me. Thanks for the tip. Im gonna try it this week :)

                    by Andrea
                    I tried to make my daughters shawl and I used some heavy bond fusible webbing. The problem I ran into was that it didn't stick well. Since I have to start all over, does anyone have a better solution? I can sew the design on but if I do that what is the best method of stitching to use zig-zag or...

                    Applique Question
                    by ~*~MizzQaqimat~*~
                    Hey y'all, since being in Canada, I've noticed that a lot of people in this area use that glitter glue paint to seal the edges of their applique, instead of stitching it. I never noticed that before back in the US. I asked someone, and she said that since they don't have dance comps in this area,...
