Get Stuck on Fabric Fusing!

The #1 most loved brand of double stick fusible web, Steam-A-Seam 2 and Lite Steam-A-Seam 2 are back and better than ever making appliqué fun again!! Steam-A-Seam 2 and Lite Steam-A-Seam 2 are heat activated pressure sensitive fusible webs. This makes the web sticky and repositionable for easy placement of your appliqué giving you the ability to play with your design before permanently ironing.

You'll never make a mistake - the last step is to fuse when everything is perfectly in its place! 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.

Lite Steam-A-Seam is the incomparable lightweight fusible web that bonds the same as Steam-A-Seam 2 but with 1/2 the weight - Perfect for laces, ribbon, silk and chiffon!

Benefits of Using Steam-A-Seam® vs other brands:

  • Re-positionable stick;
  • Bond is strong & permanent;
  • Leave edges unfinished - will not fray or lift;
  • Will not gum up your needle;
  • Machine wash and dry (See Product Care)
  • So Easy to Use and introducing New Benefits:
    • * New grid paper aids in tracing
    • * Easy to see through and write on
    • * Now printer friendly!


Use Steam-A-Seam 2 with different materials & projects:

  • Appliqué
  • No-Sew hems & seams
  • Add or repair zippers, pockets, etc.
  • Apply lace, ribbon & embellishments
  • Durable enough to use with paper, cardboard, wood, glass, etc!

Product Care

  • Machine wash & dry finished projects without fabric softners or dry clean.
  • You may leave edges unfinished, but if you choose to sew through, make sure that the Steam-A-Seam 2® is fully fused with a steam iron - 30+ sec and let set before sewing.
  • When laundering, avoid using fabric softner. Fabric softner chemicals erode the fusible web over time.

5 Easy Steps for Appliqué

Steam iron or pre-wash to remove sizing and other treatments from fabrics for best performance. Always set your iron temperature for the type of fabric you will use. Sewing is not required to finish the edges but if desired, Steam-A-Seam 2 will not gum up your needle. The paper liner makes an ideal tear away stabilizer.

Step 1 - Trace or Print your design onto the grid paper. Before sending it through your ink-jet printer, cut the Steam-A-Seam 2 to size (8.5" x 11"). Do not use with a laser printer.

Step 2 - Peel off the plain release paper and Stick your traced design onto the wrong side of your fabric.

Step 3 - Cut out your design along your traced lines.

Step 4 - Remove the grid paper to reveal the sticky fusible web, now attached to your fabric design. You may finger press and place onto your background fabric. This is a temporary stick and you may play with your design until you are happy with it.

Step 5 - Iron Press for 20+ seconds to activate the fusible web and create a permanent bond. If you would like do a finishing stitch, it's recommended to use a steam iron and to iron press for 30+ seconds. 

Tips for Using Steam-A-Seam 2 with Wool

To use Steam-A-Seam 2 or Lite Steam-A-Seam 2 with wool, or any dense and sensitive material, you need to iron press both the front and back of your design. If available, using a steam iron is recommended.  Since the "wool" iron setting is a low temperature, you must iron press for a longer amount of time, until the Steam-A-Seam webbing is properly fused. Please use caution as it is posible to burn wool fibers - do not iron press in one area for too long. Press for 45+ seconds and let it set to cool.

I used this product for the first time a few minutes ago. It was very, very easy to use. The ability to stick and move piece was helpful. When using the product for letters, remember to trace the mirror image of the letter (for those asymmetrical letters).

I used this product for the first time on an applique quilted wall hanging. Loved it so much. I was able to finger press the adhesive to the pieces and move them around on the quilt until I had just the right placement, then they stayed on while I moved to the ironing board. Then I ironed all the appliques in place. Very easy to use and the results were perfect.

Is there a way to reverse the image? So it comes out right?

**There are a few ways of achieving a reversed image - here is the easiest: Trace the pattern onto Steam-A-Seam's plain paper side using a pencil or pen. When completely traced, tape the Steam-A-Seam sheet to a sunny window with the trace side towards the glass. Now following the original traced pattern, trace again onto the grid side of the Steam-A-Seam. Use the grid side to cut out your appliqués.

I've used Steam-A-Seam for many years. I've tried other products, but they didn't work as well for me. Steam-A-Seam adheres consistently every time. I find that the edges of my appliques are sharper than with other products. I also like the fact that I can finger press and move things around before I choose to adhere them permanently.

I want to thank you for bringing this product back. I waited until your machinery was fixed to buy this because I don't like the Pelon product.

This is my first time using your product. I love that I can play with it before ironing it on. I also like the detailed instructions on your website. They are a little more detailed than what's included with the product. THank you

I have been using steam-a-seam lite II for years and patiently waited for it to come back when it disappeared for a year+. I do, however, find that it gums up my needle - am I doing something wrong or are my needles sticky?

***Thank you for your support of Lite Steam-A-Seam 2 - we are using a more aggressive pressure sensitive adhesive to keep the paper from seperating too soon. This will require a longer heating time - 20 - 30 seconds with steam on cotton fabric. Don't worry about over heating - make sure all areas are completely fused before sewing. If you feel any resistance or gumming occurs it needs to be fused longer. The pressure sensitive adhesive is water soluble so using steam really helps!

This is the first time using this product. I like it very much.The online instructions are so much better then the written ones that come with the product.

Greetings! Very useful advice in this particular post! It is the little changes that will make the biggest changes.
Many thanks for sharing!
