To use fusible web for appliquéing, complete the following steps.
1. Using a pencil and a quilting ruler, draw four 4-1⁄2×5-1⁄2" rectangles and one 4×5" rectangle onto paper backing of fusible web, leaving 1⁄2" between shapes.
2. For leaf appliqués, lay fusible web, paper side up, over patterns A and B. Use a pencil to trace each pattern the number of times indicated in cutting instructions, leaving 1⁄2" between tracings.
3. Cut out each fusible-web shape roughly 1⁄4" outside traced lines.
4. Following the manufacturer’s instructions, press fusible-web shapes onto wrong side of designated fabrics; let cool. Cut out fabric shapes on drawn lines. Peel off paper backings.
