Default Question for the ladies use woodburner to make FOE

I make FOE by hand stitches which works best for me but it is time consuming.

I have tried glue method and lighter method and no luck for both of them

Now I have bought a woodburner tool after reading some posts. I don't know what I am doing wrong, but it seems to burn before mealting. so of course, they are not strong at all. Any tips you can share? Also, which point do you use?

TIA

make sure your ends are as close as you can then after it gets hot, it melts a bit them squish it together with your fingers, then touch up the areas that are not quite together

I am having the same problem! Having a hard time picturing it. Do you put the foe down going the same direction or facing each other in the opposite direction. I have tried so many times and just keep buring it all the through!
Do you use a special tip on the woodburner?

I have tried the lighter method too. One time, it kinda worked on one side, but the melted part was hard as a rock, I thought that would be awful for a baby to wear, even with more foe glued around it.

I feel so.... well, lets just say, not so smart! lol

ANy help or pictures for the not so smart gal would be awesome!

I put them wrong sides together, then lightly heat it (I use a lighter) then when it is melted (doesnt take long) I then press it together with my fingers until all the area is together, then after I have them together, I cover that part with the ribbon to make the band interchangable, if you are not making it interchangable add a small piece of felt or ribbon to it to make it softer

I did try using lighter as well. It became "crunchy", may be I was heating too long. I will try it again. Thanks, Allison

I still would like to know any tips for using a woodburner since I just bought it today.
