General Instructions

When making place mats, refer to specific place mat instructions and the photographs and patterns. To use fusible web for appliqueing, complete the following steps.

  1. Lay fusible web, paper side up, over patterns. Use a pencil to trace patterns the number of times indicated in specific place mat cutting instructions, leaving at least 1/2 inch between tracings. Cut out fusible-web shapes roughly 1/4 inch outside traced lines.
  2. Following manufacturer's instructions, press fusible-web shapes onto backs of designated fabrics; let cool. Cut out fabric shapes on drawn lines and peel off paper backings.
