How to Appliqué

Learn how to Appliqué with this easy tot follow tutorial.
Appliqué is a great way to make your plushie look very proffesional. You can use it on any of my patterns. In combination with minky fabrics your plush soft toy will look like it has come right out of a store!

To Appliqué you need fabric, fusible webbing and an iron.

Iron the fusible webbing onto the wrong side of your appliqué fabric and allow to cool (A). Pull off the protective layer from the fusible webbing (B) and draw around your pattern piece onto the fusible-web backed fabric (C,D). Unless indicated otherwise, cut out the marked shape without seam allowance. Now place the fabric piece, fusible-web side down onto, the right side of the fabric it is to be appliquéd to and iron in place (E). 

How to Applique

Iron you application on the fabric and let it cool. You can sew the figure on the fabric with a normal stitch or a Zigzag stitch. If you use a very narrow Zigzag stitch it will give a embroidery effect. Try the stitches first on a small piece of test fabric.

Now you know how to Appliqué, I hope you found this tutorial helpful for your future sewing projects.
