Felted wool (available in many quilt shops) doesn’t fray, so there is no need to turn under the edges of the appliqué shapes. If you want to felt your own wool, machine-wash it in a hot-water-wash, cool-rinse cycle with a small amount of detergent; machine-dry it on high heat and steam-press.
To make the best use of your fabrics, cut the pieces in the following order. To use fusible web for cutting appliqué shapes, 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 1/2" between tracings. Cut out fusible web shapes roughly 1/4" outside traced lines.
2. Following the manufacturer’s instructions, press fusible web shapes onto backs of designated fabrics; let cool. Cut out fabric shapes on drawn lines and peel off paper backings.
