Turned-Edge Applique

Trace the printed reversed templates onto template plastic. Flip the template over and mark as the right side.

Position the template, right side up, on the right side of fabric and lightly trace, spacing images 1/2" apart. Cut apart, leaving a 1/4" margin around the traced lines.

Clip curves and press edges 1/4" to the wrong side around the applique shape.

Referring to the applique motif, pin or baste applique shapes to the background.

Hand-stitch shapes in place using a blind stitch and thread to match or machine-stitch using a short blind hemstitch and either matching or invisible thread.
