    You might find this useful? http://incywincytogs.blogspot.com/20...s-article.html

    I would make some paper pattern templates of what you want to applique, then cut out your fabric. Use a fusible webbing to iron your design onto the backing fabric, then get stitching!

    Also have a look at this blog, she has a 'stitch school' links bit down the side which might be useful.
