Nothing is permanent until ressed with an iron.
- If you change your mind about the appliqué fabric you are using, simply peel
off Steam-A-Seam2 and stick it to new fabric.
- There is
no waste. Since you haven't fused Steam-A-Seam2 to your appliqué
material, you can remove it from your fabric scraps and use both the excess fabric
and Steam-A-Seam2 for other projects.
vs. "Double Stick":
Two types of Steam-A-Seam are available. The
bond is the same but you may prefer one over the other depending on your project.
The original, Steam-A-Seam Sticky Back, has the pressure sensitive adhesive
(the "stick") on one side which allows for a temporary hold to the appliqué material.
It shifts easily on the second material allowing you to quickly reposition your
appliqué pieces until pressed with an iron for a permanent bond. Once fused the
bond is the same as Steam-A-Seam2. Steam-A-Seam2 Double
Stick has the pressure sensitive on both sides which allows for a temporary
hold to both the appliqué material and the background material. You can hold your
project vertically and the appliqué pieces stay in place and are still repositionable
until fused with an iron. Before fusing, tack your project to a wall or try on
a garment to check appliqué placement. You're able to reposition pieces while
you're wearing them. Once fused the bond is the same as the original Steam-A-Seam.
Once fused, Steam-A-Seam2 is washable
and dry-cleanable. Unfinished edges won't lift or fray. If you choose to finish
the edges you can sew through the pressed appliqué without gumming up your needle
or finish the edges with paint. We do not recommend drying with a dryer sheet.

and 24" widths
- Choose from Regular or Lite
fabric to remove sizing and other chemicals which may prevent the fabric from
sticking to the web. Use with or without steam. Set iron temperature according
to the type of fabric you are using.
- Trace appliqué design
in reverse on paper liner and remove the second liner. (Check to see which liner
removes first by peeling apart at the corner. Trace on the liner still attached
to the web.) Skip this step if you are not tracing a pattern.
- Stick Steam-A-Seam2
to the wrong side of the appliqué material.
- Cut Steam-A-Seam2
and material together along the traced lines.
- Peel off remaining paper
liner (leaving the web on the fabric) and stick appliqué to second material.
Reposition as desired.

temperature and fusing time to fabric). Repeat, overlapping pressed areas.
