Application instructions

Always pretest fusible fabric on a piece of scrap material before beginning. 

 

With household iron

  1. Preheat iron to medium/high heat, no steam. As all irons vary, you may need to adjust the heat setting. 
  2. Place fusible fabric adhesive side down on top of your project. 
  3. Press and hold the iron for 20 seconds. Repeat on each section until the entire piece is securely bonded. 

 

With Cricut EasyPress

Temperature for EasyPress will depend on what you are using for a pressing surface. Refer to this recommended settings chart for more information. 

  1. Set EasyPress temperature and time to the recommended settings based on whether you are using an EasyPress mat or a folded towel as the pressing surface. 
  2. Preheat the design area for 5 seconds. 
  3. Place fusible fabric adhesive side down on top of your project. 
  4. Press and hold EasyPress for 30 seconds. Repeat on each section until the entire piece is securely bonded. 
  5. Apply heat to the back side of the design area for 15 seconds. 

 

Care

  • Fusible fabric adhesive creates a temporary bond which does not withstand washing. Fusible fabric appliqués should be stitched down to permanently secure shape to fabric.
  • Machine wash cold. No chlorine bleach. 
  • Tumble dry low. Remove promptly.
