What is the difference between Heat n Bond LITE and Wonder Under? Do they gum up your needle or machine? I am going to embroidery a design and use it for applique. Answers appreciated! Hugs and flowers to all, Suzanna

Be sure to put Baking Paper on your Ironing board and under the Iron to prevent wot ever you are using from sticking and messing up your Board and Iron Hugs Ursula

I so agree about reading the directions. Do NOT glide your iron across the fabric to attach/melt. Place in one spot, count about 5-7 seconds, lift completely, move to next adjacent spot. Think of up and down, not across.

I also like the Heat n Bond Light. Be sure you read the directions re heat, steam, damp cloth, etc. Are you planning to 1.embroider your design on a piece of bonded fabric and then iron/press it to your finished product or are you going to 2.embroider your design, cut it out and bond it to a finished project? I ask because if you are doing the first remember all the stitches on the back will cover most of the Heat n Bond . Good luck.

Thanks. I have some of the Wonder Under from years ago. I remember it was pretty stiff using for applique. I just bought some Heat n Bond Lite.

If I remember correctly, Wonder Under was designed in the heady days of heirloom sewing. Heat n Bond and Heat n Bond Lite were designed for machine embroidery. Excellect products, these last two! Have fun.

Thanks, I am going to use the lite. I do have some Heat n bond for vinyl from years ago. Not sure what I will use it for but I have it and that is what is important, LOL.
