Wool felt (available in crafts stores) doesn’t fray, so there is no need to turn under the edges of the appliqué shapes. Cut edges cleanly, keeping them as smooth as possible.

To use fusible web for appliquéing, complete the following steps.

1. Lay fusible web, paper side up, over patterns. Use a pencil to trace each pattern the number of times indicated in cutting instructions, leaving at least 1⁄2" between tracings. Cut out each fusible-web shape roughly 1⁄4" outside traced lines.

2. Following manufacturer’s instructions, press fusible-web shapes onto designated fabrics; let cool. Cut out fabric shapes on drawn lines and peel off paper backings.

3. Fuse a 8x33" rectangle of fusible web to bronze wool felt.

From golden yellow felt, cut:
1—16x34" rectangle
