Is there a way to remove an applique after ironing it? I used Steam a Seam and already tried re-ironing it but it did not come off.

Sharon, My knowledge is that it is very permanent - and you will have to start over from scratch - I am so sorry - I have checked allmy sources on this and if pressing it and warming up the glue did not work then it has set and is permanent.

Thanks ladies. I also checked the site and did not find anything either.

Gini, the applique is a white dove holding a string of gold beeds. The dove is attaching the beeds to a Christmas tree. I thought of maybe satin stitching around the edge once or twice to hide some of the dove. I cut out the doves larger than the pattern because I was going to turn the edges under, then changed my mind and forgot the birds were larger.

sharon, this sounds like something i would do.      can you add a strip all the way around the tree?  maybe darker to outline it, or gold?     gini
