The body of this cat is slightly stuffed, giving it a nice 3 dimensional look. Use your favorite applique method. If you want to hem under the edges, add 1/4" around all pieces. For an easier
method, use our Fusible Web to quickly and easily attach pieces, then use paint, hand or machine stitching
to further secure the edges. I recommend satin stitching.
