Pellon’s New & Improved EZ-Steam II

Pellon EZ-Steam II

I recently had the opportunity to try out Pellon’s new & improved EZ-Steam II product. I played around with it a bit and once I figured out all the different things I can use it for I was hooked! It comes in regular weight and in a “lite” version. You can get it in packages of five 9″ x 12″ sheets, by the yard in 12″ and 20″ wide rolls or even as a tape. The tapes come in both 1/4″ wide and 1/2″ wide. So many options!

I put together this video to show you how to properly use EZ-Steam II and to give you some ideas as to how you can use in your projects. You may be wondering what’s so special about this product well, here are just some of the things I really like about EZ-Steam II.

• It is double sided.

• It has a gridded paper side that helps for sizing your designs, fussy cutting, or for gauging how big to draw your designs if you’re free-handing it.

• The paper backings peel off a lot easier than other products I’ve used.

• Has two different methods of application.

• Allows your appliques to be repositionable before you fuse into place.

• Does not require machine stitching. Makes permanent bond.

• Allows me to make really cool fabric stickers!

    Why are the comments mostly negative on the Amazon site that your link takes us to? It seems like people didn’t like it and were disappointed in the product that should be fantastic.

      Debbie, I think those comments are about the older version of the product. The product I demo in the video is their “new & improved” EZ-Steam II. They made some great new changes and the instructions are a lot clearer now. Not to mention that my video covers all the bases on how Pellon designed it to be used. Hope that helps! This version is new so any older reviews are about previous versions. Just make sure the version you are buying has the gridded backing on one side and then you’ll know it’s the right one. Hope that helps!

    I just love all your tuts! I love, even more, that I can go to your site and watch any one of them, at any time. Just a note: your “Video Corner” looks awesome! Thanks for sharing all your knowledge, Vanessa. The world is a better place because of women like yourself. <3

      Glad you like it, Sarah! Isn’t it cool the things you can make with it? I even made a cute decal for the back of my smartphone case. It sticks so well!

    I also went on the Amazon site, using your link, and I’m not so concerned with the reviews but which Steam II will you get credit for? In clicking on your link all the Steam II products are brought up- the lite, the tape and the different sizes. And when we do purchase what you recommended are we going to receiving the new and improved ?

    Did you need to iron it on the journal, as well? Or will it stay with just the sticky?

      Nope. Just stick it on. Because I fused it once to the fabric the adhesive already fused to the fabric fibers. Then when you peel the other paper off it’s sticky and holds really well. I made a decal for the back of my cell phone case and it hasn’t even peeled up yet!

    Hi Vanessa, I LOVE your videos. I am a novice sewer so I am truly appreciative of your videos.

    I have a question about both this Pellon product and the freezer paper you used in a previous video. In the former video, you ironed on the freezer paper to your pattern pieces which was then able to be used over and over. Can this product be used in the same way for patterns? Is there a benefit of one over the other? Also, if you are going to sew say a garment that had been fused by either of these methods, would it cause a build up on your sewing needle?

    Once I was sewing a fabric that had these sequins of a sort that were adhered to the base fabric so that the it gave the appearance of being a sequined top, but it was a flatly solid fabric. I am not sure if that makes any sense but I don’t know how else to describe it. Anyway, the point of all of this is to say that that particular fabric was a nightmare to sew due to my needle getting gunk on it from the fabric.

    Is there a way to avoid this? Will either the freezer paper or this Pellon paper cause issues with sewing a larger project? Lastly, I remember I wanted to ask also if there are fabrics that shouldn’t be starched or have either one of these products ironed to it? I’m sure velvet is one such fabric. But can you use this with ultra light/sheer fabrics like silks, organdy, sheers or the like?

    I’m sorry to be so long winded. Thank you so much for what you do to help us fledgelings muddle our way through! 🙂

    Warm Regards,
    Catrina

    I have just tried to use the Lite EZ Steam 11 tape. Before watching your video, I tried everything to get the paperback off. After watching your tape, and scoring it, that helped but it still came off in pieces without the sticky part staying together. I bought 4 rolls after hearing the review and really do want to use it. I’ll keep trying but am pretty frustrated.
