One question... the wonder under stuff, i've never heard of it but by everyones posts it seems it's not neccessary, right?

 but that stitch n tear stuff is like a stablizer for appliques? I accidently bought some of it the other day (i thought it was interfacing when i bought it and figured out it wasn't when i got it home and tried to iron it on to some fabric and it didn't stick! haha silly me  Embarrassed) From the name of it I assume you just stick it under the applique while stitching it and then pull off the excess when you're done? Is that right?

Having tried both with and without Wonder Under, I totally vote FOR Wonder Under, especially if your applique material has ANY tendency to fray, or if your image has points or fine detail that must be secured. It makes a so much better look. Now, if you were HAND appliqueing, it might not be quite so important, but it would still keep your applique fabric from coming apart with time.

The stabilizer is more of an optional thing to me. Excellent if your base fabric is fairly light or slippery, but not quite so important if your base fabric is a sturdy cotton or denim.

More than half of the original post pictures work right now but it looks like the ones from Flickr may be too busy to work.

Keep trying. They may be having bandwidth problems.

good tute, I personally prefer basting spray over wonder under, it doesnt gum up your needle and it holds your applique in position but is repositionable, so you cant go oh crikey I fused it to the wrong place/side and you dont get any gunk on your iron from the bonding web. I am in love with my rowenta iron its a sick thing, I get pissed when she gets gunky.
