How to Applique with Heat'n'Bond Lite
Applique is a special technique where the original design is cut from one piece of fabric, placed onto a fabric background and then held in place with stitching around the edges. There are several applique techniques you can use, but I like the ease and results of using the Heat'n'Bond Lite method with church banner fabrics.

Applique Techniques:
  • Match the weight and fiber content of the fabrics for the applique and the background fabric.
  • Preshrink the applique fabric only if you preshrink your other fabrics.
  • Cut appliques with the same grain lines as your background fabric.
  • Heat'n'Bond Lite will give you a no-pucker-bond and easy application.
How to Applique with Heat'n'Bond Lite:
  • Trace your design upside-down onto the paper side of Heat'n'Bond.
  • Cut the paper out about 1/2" larger all the way around than your original design.
  • Adhere the bumpy side of Heat'n'Bond Lite to the wrong side of your chosen applique fabric.
  • After cooling, cut out your design.
  • Peel off your paper backing.
  • Fuse the right side of your applique in position on the right side of your fabric.
  • You may stitch around your design if you desire.  I usually wait and complete the stitching when I quilt my completed banner.
Appliques can add intricate, beautiful detail to your banner fabrics.  You will enjoy creating your own designs when you can so easily add appliques with this smooth technique.
