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.

I've done some fusible work, and would love to do more.  It sure beats the old fashioned alternative!

HeatnBond has been a staple in my appliqué work for years, it's my "go to" product for almost every project I design in appliqué. A few months ago my husband was running errands and was at the fabric store picking up some items for me. He called to say they were out of the Therm o Web HeatnBond but, they had a product called "SpraynBond" made by the same company available. Since I was in the middle of an appliqué project and ran out of the HeatnBond, and in urgent need in order to finish my work, I asked to him to get me the SpraynBond.

I loved it! Not only was it a great product for my appliqué work but, I also started using it to stabilize the layers if my quilting work instead of basting or pinning. It saves me so much time and is a very reliable product. WOW! It has a wide range of uses and is now another "must have" in my appliqué arsenal.

Thank you Therm O Web for your great products and the opportunity to win these wonderful products.
