Stuffing Body Adds Dimension

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 Fusible Web to quickly and easily attach pieces, then use paint, hand or machine stitching to further secure the edges. I recommend satin stitching.

Embroidery Thread: for machine or hand embroidery

For more information on using fusible web (also called iron on adhesive), go to: Free Applique Instruction.
Spray Starch: to stiffen pieces - helps when sewing them into place. This is only needed if you are not using iron-on adhesive (fusible web).
