very nice. i really like the white/black/red color combination, and how the appliques aren't identical.

would you mind elaborating what fusing is, and why it is important? i'm pretty new to the whole "sewing-and-making-it-wearable" thing...

also, have you ever tried embroidery? it really isn't so hard... you might be able to embroider a design right onto your fabric.. and thanks for the little tutorial!

Interfacing (most often fusible) is a kind of thick woven fabric-sort of thing that reinforces your project.  It'll fuse onto the wrong side of the fabric with the help of an iron, and stiffen it up- often used to reinforce high-stress areas (like laces) or thicken something up so it holds its form easier (like collars or waistbands).  There are huge rolls of it at any fabric store worth its title, as most of the patterns I've ever worked with call for the stuff.

Not on me, but I'd bet that's more an individual issue.
