After printing or drawing your design lay your wonder under on top to determine what size/shape to cut. This does not need to be exact, just cut out a piece that is just outside the outline of your design. Repeat this for each design.
Take your fabric and lay the wonder under with the rough side face down on the wrong side of the fabric. Press following the manufacture directions (directions will come with the WU). The WU just needs to be completely fused to the fabric when you are done.
Peel the backing completely off.
Lay your cut out design on the right side of your fabric.
Trace around it with a water soluble pen. I actually just used a normal ink pen, but I traced a little wider than the letters. Then when I cut my design out, I cut just inside the line.
Cut out your design!
Lay your design how you want it onto your shirt, or whatever surface you are appliquéing to. Iron it in place, again following the manufacture directions. Remember no to get too close to your garment edges since we will be sewing the back on later.
Now all that is left to do is topstitch, if you choose to. I most always do, just because I love the way it gives it a finished look. When you are appliquéing something on a flat surface like this tank, it is much easier. If you are appliquéing something on a ready made garment, you have to be careful not to stitch the back to the appliqué. It is a little more tricky since you have to navigate two layers and keep them apart, but still very doable! Just take your time and you will do great! Make sure when stopping to turn a corner your needle is always in the down position before raising the pressure foot! Stop as many times as you need to, depending on your design it can be a slight challenge until you get the hang of it. If you are a little unsure of your top stitching around appliqué abilities, don’t be afraid to practice before doing the real thing!
Enjoy your finished creation! 🙂 🙂
