|The first thing you want to do is press flat the fabric that you want to add Mistyfuse to. I am using a dry iron on the cotton setting. Sometimes I spray a bit of water on the creases to help steam them out.
|I am carefully laying this on the wrong side of the fabric, and moving away all of the leftover threads that are on the edge.
|I am cutting around this one because of the big cut on the left. Cutting it just inside the fabric edge. Save the piece you cut out in a ziplock bag, away from your ironing space.
|Now I am covering up the fusible that is laying on the fabric with a Goddess Sheet (also sold my Mistyfuse), and you can use parchment paper also. It seals the deal, and helps keep away the web from your iron.
|Using my dry iron on the cotton setting, I run my iron around the area in a circular motion, being careful to press the edges all the way around.
|Here's my Continental iron on almost the highest setting. I buy this iron on Amazon and buy two at at time, just in case.
|You tell if it is done, if you see this shiny sheen on the surface. If when you pull up the Goddess Sheet or a piece of parchment paper, and you see strings of web, it needs more pressing.
|Then you can make a piece of art! This was made with scraps (10x7), fused with Mistyfuse, free motion machine quilted. Made for the SAQA Trunk Show of me. Self portrait.
