Philcon Progress

I've been busy appliqueing away today:








My tips for iron-on appliques:

  • Use heavy-duty wonder-under.  It really makes a difference in smooth look.
  • Use sharp scissors for a clean line.  It helps with the not fraying.
  • Warm up the piece with an iron right before trying to separate the backing from the piece.  Don't make it hot, but a little warmth will help it not stick to the backing.
