I try really hard to write clear, concise instructions. But try as I might, I sometimes omit things and here is one:
I failed to add an important step in the general applique instructions. When two fabrics butt up to each other, like flower petals and a flower center, the one that is underneath the other should have a bit extra (scant 1/4") of fabric added along that edge to tuck under it's neighbor. The easiest way to do this is add it to your fusible web when tracing. Draw the actual line and add another line to extend the fabric that will tuck under. That way, you are sure you have added the extra fabric at a glance.
Thanks with your patience and I apologize if anyone had or has trouble with this!
