- piece of Vlieseline® Stickvlies (Stickvlies is also known as "stitch-n-tear" and it is used as backing for embroideries and appliqués. By Stickvlies you can sew embroidery and appliques without stretching the fabric.
- Vlieseline® Vliesofix (Vliesofix is a non-woven fabric with the feature that both sides can be ironed onto a material)
Pin piece of tear-away backing to wrong side of garment piece under appliqué shapes to prevent background fabric from stretching while appliqué is stitched to it.
Stitch shapes in place close to edge with straight stitch or with narrow, short zigzag stitch. Use either matching or contrast-color sewing thread. Secure thread ends carefully.
Remove tear-away backing from wrong side and steam appliqué area.
