Default Heat n bond question?

OK I am looking at this site and they have instructions on heat and
bond method appliqué,
Although I have use other fusible products I have never used heat n
bond. On this site it says that you bond the appliqué to the fabric but
it does not say you turn the edges of your fabric under in any way. I
have always either turned my edges under or satin or blanket stitched
them. They way this makes it sound is you do not do any thing to the
edges you just bond it to the fabric and that is that. Did I miss
something or is this a mistake? Is there a method where you leave your
appliqué edges raw?


Heat bond lite works good, but DONT use the ultra if you are planning on machine sewing your applique. I did this when I first started appliqueing, thinking that the ultra hold would be better. Yes it holds great but you will have to change needles every 10 minutes, as it clogs the heck out of the needles. personally glue stick is my personal favorite way of holding my applique in place while I am sewing it to my project
