Appli-Punto to Go: fusible Applique + Trapunto

Painlessly create beautiful designs with intricate detail, perfect for quilts, wearables, borders or accents. Long flowing, curly borders or pictures with the sharpest points and thinnest lines imaginable are possible with this easy method using fusible web. Combine fabrics such as silk and wool for wearables or stick to quilting cottons tried and true. Give your design that extra punch with the added dimension of trapunto.... without all the slitting and stuffing! As an added bonus, it’s super easy to create two images at the same time, one positive and one negative.
