What are you most proud of? Fusible Applique is simple and fun. Apply fusible web (i.e. Heat n Bond) to the back of your fabric. Leave the backing on the fusible web. Copy your design onto freezer paper, Cut the design segments apart, place them on your chosen fabric and iron to the front side of your fused fabric. Cut apart and rearrange your color puzzle on a base fabric. Remove the backing and fuse. Thread paint for details. What advice would you give someone starting this project? If you have never done fusible applique look for instructions online. When creating your design look for the lines and shapes necessary to define the object, and don't add too much detail to start, A great tip is to create a coloring book drawing if you have that option on a photo editing program.
