Hey friends,

Just in case this might help someone... I would like to share an experience I just learned from!

If you are a big fan of Steam-A-Seam (org, 2, or lite) like myself, then you might print something on photofabric and then try to fuse it to another piece of fabric.

I would suggest *not* using thin Photo Fabric (I am using Crafter's Photo Fabric sheets, Poplin) with Steam-A-Seam, you will get strange darkening and discoloration around the "bumps" that are Steam-A-Seam.  Fusible web interfacing does not seem to cause the same issues.

I can't suggest a particular one, because I haven't used anything but Stitch Witchery.  I'd love to hear which ones you like/suggest, though?  I can tell you that Stitch Witchery does not have the same issue as Steam A Seam.

I'm late to the game here, but Heat n' Bond works well.

I use heat'n'bond as well and it does work well. 

Haveyou considered a fabric fusible spray?
