Here’s a free and fun video tutorial to demonstrate how to use Heat’nBond Lite & Featherlite fusible adhesive. Heat’nBond® Lite is a paper backed, iron-on, sew-able, double-sided adhesive for bonding fabric without extra weight or stiffness. Use it in place of pinning or basting for applique shapes on quilts, quilted wall-hangings and garments. Draw or print directly on the paper backing to easily design applique pieces! Doesn’t gum up your needles! Eliminates time-consuming pinning!
