The periodic sticking /not sticking could be because of the sizing on the fabric too.

"19.  ... some glue-gun crazed applique freak."

Mental picture of woman in curlers with flowered underware on over her hot pink sweat pants, her matching hoodie flowing behind her like a cape and a wild look in her eyes as she runs down the sidewalk hot glueing plastic flowers and other plastic faux knick nacks to everything and everyone... Smiley  It's been a long day, thank you - I so needed that!

I would say your iron isnt hot enough.  Cotton can withstand a lot of heat. Steam is good for speeding things up but you need to let your fabric cool or the fusible stuff will peel off when the fabric is warm and damp from it.  Are you prewashing your fabric?  The fabric will shrink at a different rate than the interfacing and leave puckers too.  I'm sure you'ld love working with fusible web once you've tried it.  There are so many options it opens you up to.

I just saw a tote at Walmart that was for carrying fish for fishing tornaments.  It was a large zippered top mesh bag with handles like a tote bag, around 18 by 24 inches.

The heel portion I think is one section and the toe section is attached to it.  Then you would sew on the foot part of it, which would have the all the seams on the top section enclosed, but would almost have to have seams on the inside.

Pellon is one of the best fusible interfacings out there.  I haven't heard of any that work better.  Part of your problem could be that your working with a poly/poly blend.  It just doesn't stick as well as it does to the rough cotton fibers and it can't take the heat they can either.   

There are fusible web products that you can iron on to fabric to make the fabric fusible.  Stitch witchery is one of these.

I just cut down each side seam.... I tried to save the stone-washed-faded part on the legs so that would show later on.  Then I turned them inside out and stitched and restitched a zillion times until they fit perfect, then serged it.  I was going for a biker/bootcut kind of look.  They were baggy easy fit jeans before.

To hide where the I cut the band and cuffs, I took off the belt loops and trimmed the top edge of the band off and reinforced around the button and button hole a little.  I clipped the rest of the band and the cufffs a little bit so the dryer would fray them when they went through the wash.

20  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Discussion and Questions / Re: has anyone ever made a mesh tummy panel for a skirt or pants? on: June 27, 2007 05:40:30 PM
I added a tummy tucking layer to a swimsuit I made last year.  I used the same material as the suit.  It was a heavier spandex or well the stretch in it was really... "supportive" Huh  It was good stuff and not very flimsy but yet it wasn't like wearing a wet suit either.... lol
