fusible interfacing

I am making a quilt for my granddaughter out of her baby pajamas and using fusible interfacing to help with the stretch in it. I had done about 30 squares earlier this year and just got back to it.
I have forgotten how I applied the fusible interfacing and was wondering if you ladies could tell me how its suppose to be done. Do you use steam or a damp press cloth when ironing it on.

I usually do it with a dry iron just like Steam A Seam.

RE: fusible interfacing

If it's a fusible interfacing, then I use a damp cloth and/or steam.

RE: fusible interfacing

If you can remember the brand, check their website as the instructions vary from type and mfr.
I hate it when I forget how I did something when I get back to working on the project!
Cute idea for a kid's quilt.

RE: fusible interfacing

i have no idea what the brand is. The sales slip that I had when I purchased it is gone. I bought it at Fabricland in Ontario when I was there visiting family and there wasn't any instructions with it.

RE: fusible interfacing

I found this blog entry regarding fusible interfacing.

I have always used a dry iron at as high a heat as the fabric can take but in the blog she uses steam and a damp press cloth.

RE: fusible interfacing

Thanks Ladies. I tried using steam from my iron and then ironed it on. I washed one piece and dried it in the dryer and it was fine.
