Discover the 5 easy-to-learn steps for raw edge applique
  1. Trace the applique pattern shapes onto paper-backed fusible web.

  2. Cut roughly around traced shapes, and iron the fusible onto the “wrong” or back side of your fabric following manufacturer's instructions.

  3. Make precise cuts around appliques, following your traced pattern lines.

  4. Place master pattern on a light box and cover with a Teflon pressing sheet. Lay individual pattern pieces in the correct location on the pattern, working in a small section at a time. Add a second Teflon pressing sheet on top of your grouping and press, fusing the pieces together. Allow to cool, then peel off and place on background fabric according to master pattern. Cover with second Teflon pressing sheet and fuse into place.

  5. Topstitch the edges of each applique section, using straight stitching.
