Default Applique shirt question? which method?

I have made shirts and onesies with appliques for quite some time. I have always cut the letter/number/etc. (usually with my cricut) and ironed it on. I then hand machine stitch around the edge to make sure its totally secure. I have recently partnered with a gal who has a kiosk in a mall. The orders are flying in and this method is becoming quite time consuming. I made an iron on and then washed the shirt a couple of times and the letter started coming off at the edges. Does anyone have a specific iron on product that truly holds? I would love to skip the stitching step. Thanks!

I use wonder under first then zig zag stitch around with the sewing machine. It holds very well with no fraying!

IMO I think that the stitching is the most important step. I would only buy an applique that was stitched on. Little fingers like to peel off iron-ons.

I use HeatNBond right now. I fell the same way about buying one. I wouldn't buy one without it being stitched. There is another gal in the same twon that sells TONS without stitching at all though. I just thought maybe I was missing out on some amazing product that bonds them really, really well. Looks like I'll keep sewing!

I won't buy one or make one that isn't stitched on. If you don't want to do the zig-zag you could always do a straight stitch which will allow it to fray. Some of mine I prefer to do that way. Shabby and made to fray looks cute on some of them. It does save time too.
