How to make perfect petals in Appliqué.

How I make my flower petals in appliqué
  1. Trace your pattern  on to heat resistant template plastic.
  2. Cut out the template.
  3. Trace template onto the back of your fabric.
  4. Using a quilting weight thread or thicker thread, Use a running stitch starting on the bottom corner of your petal.
  5. Insert your finger in the center of the fabric and draw up your thread.
  6. Tie off thread with a couple of stitches .
  7. Spray starch then use hot iron wait till cools 
  8. Snip one thread and pull out template. Hit petal with iron once more and it’s ready to glue baste in place. 🌸
