Applique tutorial

First--sorry for no tutorial last week.  There was an issue with the blog and it took a couple of days to fix.

Second - For the next few weeks the tutorials are going to be addressing the basics.
This tutorial will be addressing raw edge applique.

What you need
design of you choice - anything works in this area
material - large enough for your design and another piece for your background
fusible web- such as wonder under or heat and bond
pencil - for tracing

1- trace design onto the paper side of your web.

2-iron design onto the wrong side of chosen fabric

3-cut out design

4-peel off paper backing

5-iron design onto right side of background fabric

6-finish the edges.  You can hand stitch or machine stitch.  Zig zag or decorative...the choice is yours.
