I love the look of applique. Like many of us, I don’t have as much time as I’d like to work on projects. My solution for doing applique is using fusible webbing. Not just any fusible webbing, double-sided fusible webbing. My webbing of choice sheets of Lite Steam-A-Seam II.
Peel off the back paper. Carefully finger-press the fabric allowance to the exposed sticky webbing. At this point you should have a piece of fabric in the pattern shape with all raw edges folded under with a sticky middle part.
In this example, I placed all my pieces before ironing them down. Then I stitched all of them at the same time.
I am a mom and a grandma, daughter, sister, state worker, seamstress, knitter, some time crocheter, gardener, history bounder, motorcycle safety instructor and girlfriend. Like many of us I have WAY TOO MANY hobbies.
