for your vines you probably need to make bias strips (bias curves and still lies flat)
you can add fusable to the back of the fabric before cutting the bias strips if you want- then join them for what ever length you need them to be (like joining binding strips)
lots of times the layout diagrams are also your applique patterns- number the pieces- trace them with tracing paper-leaving a little space between each piece so you can cut them apart- i usually add a little bit extra where pieces will go under another piece so the top piece has something to (grab) and there is no gaps between pieces when i put them together
