Using fusible web for wool applique: easy as can be (tutorial + fabric giveaway!)

From All for Fall’Tis the season for wool: sweaters, mittens, hats, scarves—and yes, ’tis the season for sewing with wool too! Imagine curling up on the couch, hot coffee or tea nearby, needle, thread, and fuzzy bits of wool at the ready. We want to go to there!

All for Fall author Bonnie Sullivan knows a thing or two about working with wool. She knows a lot about fabrics that behave like wool too. Bonnie designed her Woolies Flannel line of fabrics with Maywood Studio to look like wool, but they sew, piece, and wash like quality cotton flannel because they are flannel! You’ll find classic herringbones, plaids, and tweeds—those fall-inspired fabrics you want to cozy up in as your feet crunch along leaf-laden sidewalks.

Bonnie’s way of doing wool appliqué couldn’t be simpler—she’s got a few tricks up her (flannel) sleeves! One of them? Fusible web, which not only makes appliqué a breeze; it also prevents edges from unraveling. To whisk you into the spirit of the season, we’re sharing Bonnie’s fusible web for wool appliqué how-to from All for Fall below. Read on and you’ll see what we mean by simple!


Bonnie SullivanAPPLIQUÉ WITH FUSIBLE WEB

Wool appliqué is easy and so much fun. Over the years, I’ve tried many different ways of preparing the pieces for appliqué and many different stitches, and I’ve settled on the following techniques.

1. Patterns are reversed for use with fusible web. Trace the patterns onto the paper side of lightweight fusible web, and cut out the shapes roughly ⅛" to ¼" outside the traced lines.

2. Place the paper shapes on the wrong side of the designated fabric and fuse in place following the manufacturer’s instructions. Cut out the pieces on the lines.

3. Peel the paper off the shapes and arrange them on the appropriate fabrics; press to fuse the shapes to the fabric. When using fusible web with wool, you may have to give it a little more time and pressure to make sure the heat goes through the thick wool, especially when there are multiple layers. Because the wool is thick, pressing from the back after you’ve pressed the front will help the glue to adhere.

4. Stitch the shapes to the fabric as described in the project instructions. On most of my projects I use a simple whipstitch to further secure the appliqué shapes to a background fabric.


Blissfully simple, don’t you think? Even those of us who think we’re allergic to appliqué can go pro with Bonnie’s approach!

  • I truly love wool applique, but don’t do it enough. I have used the buttonhole stitch, but have been trying whipstitch.

    —Barbara on November 12, 2018
  • Mostly I use the buttonhole stitch to do the edges. But I use multiple stitches on the inside and around the appliqué items. For very small pieces I usually attach with one or more French knots. I have several very old books on different embroidery stitches that I use for reference. Generally the stitches work just as well for thicker threads. And sometimes I just make them up. Fun!

    —Nancy Wrenn on November 12, 2018
  • I love a buttonhole stitch! But as I do more wool appliqué and am starting to learn more decorative embroidery stitching, I first use a tiny whip stitch to anchor my wool in place, especially with small pieces.

    —Pat on November 12, 2018
  • Quilting for years, never tried working with wool. Time to winter with wool!

    —Susan browning on November 12, 2018

This book looks fabulous – I love to sit and sew on my wool applique’s while watching T.V. and when traveling.

  • Wool projects are the BEST! So many cute things to make. I like using the “blanket stitch”

    Lori Hossack on November 16, 2018
  • I use the buttonhole stitch but will try the whip stitch on my next project. I’ve been a big fan of Bonnie’s designs for a long time now and always have a couple works in progress. Keep those designs coming, Bonnie!

    —Kathy on November 16, 2018
  • I use either a buttonhole or a whipstitch, depending on what look I want for the finished piece. This sounds like another wonderful book from Bonnie! Thanks for generously sharing this technique.

    —Beth T. on November 16, 2018

    —Katherine on November 16, 2018

    —Sue MacLeod on November 16, 2018
  • I have used both stitches

    —Deb Adams on November 16, 2018

  • I use both, depending upon the type of effect I want.

    —Susan E Lester on November 16, 2018

    —Theresa Waite on November 16, 2018
  • I would do the whip stitch as well as the blanket stitch and then decide which I love the best

    —Diane on November 16, 2018

    —debby on November 16, 2018

    —Virginia Bronner on November 16, 2018

    —Maureen on November 16, 2018

  • I’ve never tried this!

    —Kit on November 16, 2018
  • I must confess that I use both stitching methods depending on what the result is supposed to look like. Either one is done small with the intention of it being nearly invisible.

    Thank you

    —Clara Chandler on November 16, 2018

    —Rommy on November 16, 2018
  • I use both stitches depending on the size of the piece I am working on and the look I want to achieve. I love Bonnie’s books and I have never tried her flannel and would love too. Thanks for the opportunity to win.

    —Elizabeth Dyer on November 16, 2018
  • This is a dreamy giveaway. I have made little applique ornaments and used the whip stitch but would love to expand to bigger projects. This giveaway would make that happen. I love the projects in the book and the fabrics & projects are perfect to help me learn more and build my skill level to where I could make a big quilt.

    —Krissy Butorac on November 16, 2018
  • I like using a blanket stitch.

    —Terry on November 16, 2018
  • This is a beautiful book. I have made one wool quilt for my son. The methods used in this book seem to make the effort much easier than the ones I used. I have learned the blanket stitch on my Janome is the best.

    —Wendy Bynner on November 16, 2018
  • I’ve never tried wool applique but am ready to give it a try.

  • I am a beginner quilter and have never tried applique but I am ready to give it a try.

    —Marie Dickson on November 16, 2018
  • Bij vilt en wol heb ik vaak de knoopsgaten steek gebruikt. De laatste tijd gebruik ik vaker de slinger steek. Ik vind deze eigenlijk beter bij het wol appliqueren passen.

    Translation: I often used the buttonhole stitch for felt and wool. Recently I use the pendulum stitch more often. I actually think this fits better with the wool appliqué.

    —Gonny Defilet on November 16, 2018
  • I have not tried wool appliqué but would love to give it a whirl. I like hand work because you can’t take it with you.

    —Carol B on November 17, 2018
  • I use buttonhole if I want to highlight the edges or give it a more country look. I use a whip stitch if I don’t want the stitching to show. There’s a place for each! And so easy! Love it!

    —Deborah Fields on November 17, 2018
  • It depends on the look I want. Whip stitch like Bonnie if I want the stitching to blend in and blanket stitch if I want a more defined outline.

    —Caryn G on November 17, 2018

  • I like a whip stitch best. The designs in the book are wonderful!

    —Brenda Julovich on November 17, 2018
  • What wonderful projects. People always say you can’t use fusible with wool, but like Bonnie, I’ve found it works just fine if you press a little longer. I love the woolie flannels, too. Thanks for this giveaway chance! I use buttonhole on most of my wool applique, and I like to add a little embroidery stitching around some of it, too.

    Susan N. on November 17, 2018

    —Kathryn Smotryski on November 17, 2018
  • I have never done wool applique, but I am willing to give it a try. I tend to spend my spare money on cotton fabric and supplies and wool seems like a whole ‘nother way to build a stash and spend. With the fabric, if I win, I would love to give wool applique a try. I love the look of wool.

    —Carole Holmberg on November 17, 2018

  • I have never tried wool appliqué but can’t wait to try.

    —Debbie Chenoweth on November 18, 2018

    —Barbara K on November 18, 2018
  • I usually have used a blanket stitch when appliquing with wool. Lately, I’ve been using a whip stitch especially when stitching tiny pieces!
