These are so amazing! How did you cut out the applique pieces so exactly? They're tiny and brilliantly done.
I plan what I am going to make on the computer and then print it out, backwards if I remember to.
Then take a sheet or roll of Sulky Sticky, to which I am now forever indebted. This stuff: http://www.createforless.com/Sulky+Sticky+Stabilizer+Package+7.5x+9+12+pc+White/pid31862.aspx?utm_source=googlebase&utm_medium=cse
It has a paper side that peels off, and a stabilizer side that feels like any normal interfacing. Put paper side down, on my printed sheet, and trace off one color's design.
Then peel off paper, stick to fabric's wrong side. The sticky serves 4 functions now:
*It provides an outline to cut your appliques along.
*It keeps your fabric from fraying.
*It keeps your fabric stiff, which is easier to cut.
*It has a texture that helps position appliques without them sliding all around.
