I employ the fast iron on fusible applique technique in most of my designs, and while they all contain full instructions on how to do this, it always helps to have lots of pictures, which is why I have put together this tutorial.
- After reversing the images, trace out the patterns onto the iron on fusible webbing. You can use a light box or any available window for this.
3. Place on the WRONG side of the appropriate fabrics and iron down firmly. My tip is to make sure that the temperature of your iron is not too hot, as this can cause the glue to over melt and then show through the fabric.
4. Now cut out the appliques on the cutting line.
5. Peel away the backing paper.
6. Place the pieces onto the backing fabric, taking some time to play around with the positioning so that you
get the best placement possible.
6. Iron the pieces onto the background.
7. Stitch with a machine running stitch around the edge of the shapes.
As you can see the above piece is very simply stitched, in fact I did not put any stitching at all around the moon, so as to make it appear far off.
Of course, you can if you wish, add a lot more stitching as shown on the Adding Stitch page
