Thank you so much, I was reading the manual to my sewing machine on applique. I am wanting to try this, but had no idea where and how to begin. Now I can understand on how to do this, after reading your tut. When it comes to understanding something I'm new at, pictures are so much more helpful. THANK YOU! Grin

I have a question- many times my appliqued items end up puckered. It's like the fabrics stretch while I am sewing around them. How do I avoid this??

And by the way, that tree is beauuuuutiful! I Love it!
Thanks!

So glad that so many of you have found this useful. I'm not sure where some of the original pictures went, but if I can find them, I'll be sure to fix the non-working pics.  Smiley

If you're having problems with gunk on your needle, make sure that you're following the directions perfectly on your wonder under. I know that some off brands aren't as high quality and if you don't get your iron hot enough, the glue will get really sticky. I never have a gunk issue.

My issue with not using any type of fusible is that when doing a complex applique, your fabric will move and you'll end up with ripples. It can be done, but I don't suggest it. There are applique glue sticks that I've seen around that could be another option.


I have appliqued before, but I did it a little differently without the wonder-under. I keep hearing great things about it, so I gave this method a try. I am really having problems, the glue (or whatever that is on the wonderunder,) is gunking up my machine, I only get about 10 stitches and then I have to stop, take out my needle, clean it off, rethread, and start again. It really sucks! If I don't it makes my machine skip stitches and breaks the thread eventually.

Does this happen to anyone else? Is there something I'm not doing right? I know this is a pretty old thread, but I wasn't sure where else to ask this. I really want to be able to applique this way, it saves me a few steps from my other method, and it saves a bit on material too. Any help is greatly appreciated!

This is awesome!  I've seen so many beautiful appliqued things and while I love how they look, I wasn't sure how to do it.  Thank you so much for this tut!  It's something that I'm definitely going to do.  Just need to get the right foot and lots more thread.  Oh, and wonder-under and something to applique on and.....alright so I'm not quite ready to dive in.  But I will!  Soon!!

Thank you again.  You rock!!!

Thanks soooooo much for this tute!  I've been studying different people's appliques thinking "there's no way I can do this with my machine..." and asking little questions here and there but not really knowing what it was exactly I was trying to ask... does that make sense  Huh  lol
So yeah, this cleared it ALL up in my fuzzy mind!!!  You're the best!  Kiss  I can't wait to try something, I'll post when I finally do!
