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

1. Cut a 2x17" rectangle of fusible web. Press fusible-web rectangle onto wrong side of mottled green flannel. Cut fused rectangle into 2—1/2x16" vine appliqué strips.

2. Lay additional 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 each fusible-web shape roughly 1/4" outside traced lines.

3. Following manufacturer’s instructions, press fusible-web shapes onto wrong sides of designated fabrics; let cool. Cut out fabric shapes on drawn lines. Peel off paper backings.
