    Final Product: What You Will Create

    Preface:
    To access the FCM and SVG files for electronic cutters select “all formats” when purchasing the design to have these files appear in your download widow. If using a Scan N Cut use the FCM files so that you can separate the leaf applique from the lemon applique on the screen to place the parts over the appropriate fabrics. Follow the instructions in our article on Stitch and Trim Applique. For an easy method to bind these small embroidery projects see our article at https://www.embroiderydesigns.com/emb_learning/project/1465/binding-small-embroidery-projects.aspx


    Step 1:
    (Click Image to Enlarge)
    Cut your fabric per the materials list above. Tautly hoop no show stabilizer in your hoop.
    Press the applique pieces 3 or 4 times with Magic Sizing® and fuse the Heat N Bond Lite® following the manufacturer’s instructions to the applique fabrics. Do this regardless of your method of applique.


    Step 2:
    Each person may have their own favorite method for cutting the appliques with the Scan N Cut. Mine is to remove the paper backing from the Heat N Bond Lite® and place the fabrics on the cutting mat. These FCM files have already been adjusted for size for cutting the appliques.

    Step 3:
    Cut your appliques if using the electronic cutter. If using the stitch and trim method leave your applique fabrics in the rectangular form for now.
