    I learned a new technique regarding applique. I have not tried it yet but it looks easy. Take what you want to applique. Put it face down on a piece of dryer sheet. Stitch around the edges.
    Cut a slit in the middle of the dryer sheet. Turn the applique to the outside, by pulling it through the slit. Press. Applique is now finished. Now stitch applique to fabric with a decorative stitch. Wha hoo! You are done.

    I found this method works best for large shapes. It is hard to get enough detail with it for smaller shapes. That's one reason why I prefer freezer paper applique.
