    What is fusible webbing? Fusible Webbing is a glue-type material that becomes tacky when heated. It is pressed to the back of your applique fabric which can then be heat stuck onto a background fabric adhering both sections together. Some common fusible webbing are Wonder Under, Vliesofix, Heat n Bond, and Steam a seam. For applique, you require a lightweight fusible that can be easily stitched through.
