Therefore I have implemented the Chicago School of Fusing Method of Counting!
- First, pretend you are Lawrence Welk. You are conducting the orchestra in a polka. The beat goes: 1,2,3,1,2,3,1,2,3,1,2,3. (Do NOT include the North Dakota "anda" between the numbers.)
- Count out loud. If you do this rhythm 4 times correctly, a total of 6 seconds will pass.
- Now draw a straight line on the non-glue side of the fusible web.
- Place the glue side onto the fabric.
- Place the hot (cotton setting) iron on the right side of the line.
- Begin the polka. Repeat after me: 1,2,3,1,2,3,1,2,3,1,2,3.
- Glide the iron across the line so you end up with the line on the right side of the iron by your last 1,2,3.
- There! Not only do you have the correct speed for fusing but you can dance as well.
