Your pouch is great and the octopus is super cute! Smiley
Just throwing out another option here; freezer paper.  I use freezer paper a lot for tracing patterns.  Draw your design on the paper side and cut out (I usually leave a little paper around my drawn lines) then you can iron the waxy side of the freezer paper to your felt and cut out the design on the drawn line.  I use a little bit of glue baste-it to hold my felt while hand or machine stitching it in place.

I trace my design onto fusible stuff, like heatbond and then secure and cut the felt from there.. then I do a quick topstitch around the design.. stays put and is pretty easy to work with Smiley

This is such a cute idea! Can you give me any advice or link me to a tut on how to construct a pouch like that? I've always had trouble with zippers Roll Eyes

For appliques, I use Freezer Paper. It's a white paper that's available in the US, that is papery on one side and has a thin plastic coating on the other. If you put the plastic side against your fabric and iron it, it sticks nicely and peels off without leaving any residue. I use it to make templates for appliques and stencils for screen printing Cheesy

Hi, thanks for the idea of using freezer paper for felt appliques, I will try it! To find a tutorial for a pouch, go to the "purses, bags, and wallets" board, at the top of the page there is a link to tutorials.

Cute!  Love his little face!  I've only done a felt applique once and I used your method but traced with chalk.  Wouldn't work too well for a detailed applique though.  Freezer paper is a good idea.  And I didn't know you could use wonder under on felt so that's good to know!
