Then, you will draw your appliqué pieces onto fusible web and iron them onto your fabric. Vicki will also show you how to use bias bars to create your stems, fuse them onto an appliqué pressing sheet, and then peel them off to press onto your decorative stitched background. Lastly, she will show you how to alter your blanket stitch to make it look like the whole thing has been hand-stitched!
