Three Things You Can Combine with EasyWeed® Adhesive
Have you tried EasyWeed® Adhesive? This product is essentially the heat activated adhesive without the colored HTV skin. It may not look like much, but this product packs a creative punch! Keep reading for three different things you can combine EasyWeed Adhesive with to make thousands of different projects.
Combo #1: Screen Print Foils
On it’s own, EasyWeed Adhesive is semi opaque and glossy once heat applied. Although the effect is neat, the adhesive needs to covered with something in order to wash and dry without sticking to itself. The most common way to cover the adhesive is with screen print foils. This blog post goes into detail about how to apply foil on top of EasyWeed Adhesive.
Screen print foils have a lot of names: 2 step foil, Deco Foil, Magic Foil, etc. but they’re all pretty much the same thing! They come in all kinds of colors and patterns, but if you can’t find one that fits your fancy, you can create your own color mixture by crumpling the first foil color and filling in the gaps with a second color of foil like I did on this tote bag.
You can even create multicolor styles like Authorized Distributors, The Rhinestone World, did with 5 colors of foil:
Combo #2: Fabrics
One of my favorite ways to use this product is with fabric! You can create an applique with cotton fabric like I did in this blog post or a felt applique like I made in this video!
EasyWeed Adhesive can even be paired with leather to create a patch like Patrick did in this video:
Finally, don’t forget about no sew projects like this scent sachet that was cut with the Cricut Maker.
Combo #3: Heat Transfer Vinyl

I live in the bronx NY , I can’t find easyweed adhesive tossed with silk screen foil at micheals or joanns.
I only use siser products i love my htv
Michaels doesn’t currently carry EasyWeed Adhesive (as you’ve discovered)… if you can send an email to email@example.com with your city or zip code, they can locate a distributor or reseller near you that carries the adhesive and the foils!
I love this product. Just used it for the first time to foil a shirt. Worked out perfect!
Hi where can I buy for delivery to Lanzarote Spain thanks
Hi Jeanette! Please reach out to a Siser Italy rep firstname.lastname@example.org for purchasing info in Spain.
Can you reverse the process and press the adhesive to the back of the faux leather and then cut the leather with a laser and then apply the patch to a hat?
Yes, you could do that!
