Echidna hot melt film is a clear heat-set film you can iron onto an embroidered design, making it ideal for badge-making. Simply cut a template of your embroidered design from the hot melt film. Place the clear side of the hot melt film template on the back of the design. Using a dry iron set at a high temperature, iron the paper side (using a firm pressure), until the film melts into the back of the design.
Remove the paper once the design cools. Then iron your design (badge), into place (place a Teflon sheet or similar over your design to avoid melting the stitches or scorching the design.)
Roll size: 12 inch x 5 yard (30cm x 4.5m)
Colour: Paper backed clear film

Hot Melt FilmBy: Lorraine on 20 October 2022Outstanding product, stays stuck, easy to use, wouldn't be without it,
Hot melt film,By: Tricia on 29 May 2020I bought this to use to stick the badges on beannies for the charity sew for night ninjis. It's really easy to use and stuck very well. I have found several other things that I can use it for i.e. patches on kids pants, favourite characters cut from fabric and stuck to hats, shirt, pants and even undies. It is a bit smelly so use in a well ventilated room.
