The stabilizer has the optimum texture for applique the easy way. Flexible enough to be used with any fabric, the fusible stabilizer has enough body so that seam allowances can be folded easily with the Apliquick rods. After washing, you won’t know it’s there.. There is fusible on just one side. You will mark your pattern with the fusible (shiny) side up. Cut out exactly on the line and fuse to the wrong side of your fabric. Cut a seam allowance of approximately 1/4". Using the Apliquick glue stick, apply the glue to both the seam allowance and a bit of the stabilizer. Use the tools to turn under.
