Help! I used iron-on interfacing to attach the R logo to my Team Rocket uniform shirt…but the first time I washed it, the interfacing lost its hold, & now the letter is coming up. What do I do, & can this be fixed easily? If you need pictures for further diagnosis, message me.

Hello there!

Unfortunately, fusibles aren’t as hardy to washing and wearing as they could be. Usually, these are used for a one-time wear project, or, more likely, used to keep items in place for applique.

I would recommend leaving the letter in place and then sewing around the edges with a zig-zag stitch on a machine to hold it in place. This is a pretty straightforward tutorial on machine applique. If you don’t have access to a machine, you can sew with small stitches by hand around the edges.

If you don’t want to sew it at all, you can use a stronger fabric glue to hold the piece down, though keep in mind that you may need to reglue at regular intervals if it continues to lift. I would also recommend washing by hand and drying by line if you go this route.

I hope that helps! Good luck :]
