Painlessly create beautiful designs with intricate detail, perfect for wearables, blocks, 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. 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 as the same time, one positive and one negative.
