How are you attaching the appliques to the finished project?

Perhaps laying them flat to dry and blocking them before would solve the issue.

Be sure you are not stretching the fabric when you are hooping it. Also, a BIG help is to use Wonder Under, under the applique fabric. This will make all the difference. Here is a helpful article.
