Appliqué – Lining Light Colored Shapes

Step-by-Step Instructions…

When fusing light-colored appliqué shapes to darker shapes below, sometimes the darker fabric will show through, detracting from the appearance of the appliqué. To prevent this:

Trace template shape needed of the light-colored appliqué fabric onto paper side of paper-backed fusible web. Cut out, leaving small margin beyond drawn lines. Cut a piece of white solid lining fabric slightly larger than the traced fusible web piece. Cut 2nd piece of fusible web slightly larger than the white solid piece. Cut a piece of the light-colored appliqué fabric slightly larger than the 2nd fusible web piece.
