So, I want to put a fleece applique kind of a patch on top of a fleece garment, and I was thinking of using a layer of interfacing webbing between them then ironing it together.  My concern is... can you iron fleece?  Will it, like, melt?  Hah, a pretty noobish question to be sure, I wanted to make sure before I did anything rash and ruined my project.

Thanks, friends!  Cheesy

To use fusible web the iron needs to be high enough to actually "melt" the fusible (that is how it works) and that high of heat will probably not fare well for the fleece. One nice thing about fleece is that it doesn't ravel so you could stitch it down fairly easily, even by hand.

I would try a test of some scraps, and iron "upside down" - not with your iron upside down! but with the applique face down, then the fusible stuff, then the main fleece face down, then iron on the wrong side of the main fleece, perhaps use an organza pressing cloth or some other fabric that stands up to high heat. (If anyone has suggestions for a fabric for a pressing cloth?)

Yeah, I ended up doing a test strip, and it worked!  Cheesy  I set it on a medium high heat and used a pressing cloth.

And as for the pressing cloth... I use... a handkerchief. lol!
