If you're not familiar with Therm O Web's products, here's an easy appliqué technique you can use with HeatnBond fusible adhesive. It's perfect for using fabric scraps to create a quilted pillow.
How to appliqué leaves with HeatnBond by Andy Knowlton for Therm O Web:
|Press the HeatnBond cutouts onto fabric scraps in preparation for fixing the leaves to your base fabric with fused appliqué.|
1. Trace leaves (or another motif) onto a sheet of HeatnBond Lite.
2. Cut out each leaf, leaving about 1/4″ space around each one.
3. Iron each leaf onto the wrong side of your green fabric scraps.
4. Then cut out each leaf, right on the traced lines. Remove the papers from the back. Sometimes it helps to crease the leaf a bit on the tip to get the paper to start to peel.
5. Arrange the leaves on the pillow top. Press in place.
6. Stitch around each leaf just inside the edge, machine appliqué the edges with a satin stitch, or free-motion stitch over the leaves.

This is the perfect project for a weekend spruce-up, or anytime you have fabric scraps and a couple of hours in the studio.
